Am I the only woman in America that can't slow dance?

I can not slow dance. Just never have. Skipped out on the dances in high school and just spent a lot of time avoiding it I guess. We have this event coming up and I don't think I'll be able to avoid it. I know this is ridiculous, but seriously, do you think I can catch the basics from youtube or something?? LOL I'd rather claim to be a bad dancer than a non dancer.

  • The secret is to dance with someone who knows what they are doing. They will give you cues about what to do next. Take little steps and keep your feet on the floor to keep from stepping on your partner. Try your college or rec center, they may have dance classes there, or even a dance studio. Good luck!

  • You are NOT alone! lol I can slow dance alright, but I just can't fast dance at all. I'm sure there are plenty of women that can't fast dance either, but it sure doesn't feel like that when you are in the middle of a Zumba class with all these awesome-looking moves going on all around you and you can't do it. lol

  • Ur not alone! And Ive had practice.
    When i was a kid i was taught the basics by my BIL.
    18-21yo Id go to country clubs & would dance but always tell the guys "u dont know what ur getting urself into".. Some of the sweetest guys would help, count for me, or whatever... The best night out was dancing with a guy that.. He himself.. didnt know how to dance! Lots of fun.

    Im sure you can learn something thru google/youtube.. What about asking someone you know to help out.. From experience if you understand the basic step of the slow dance (1-2-1-2 or is it 1-2-2-1? lol) a good "leader" will guide you easily.
