I'm not a good dancer. What are good resources on dancing in the club? This isn't just about gaming, since it looks really fun and unstifling but I'm just no good at it at this point.

I saw a video on his youtube channel once. He was in a warehouse dancing crazy with a chick, they were pretty much all alone. Have been looking for it since to no avail.

Here is a short clip though. Everyone else is acting so cool. Then @ 0:39 he shows up:



One thing I like to do is practice my dancing in my apartment with some headphones. I really have a passion for dancing now. Love that shit!!!

Agree. You're having the most fun if you're just acting crazy with the music. That's basically all I do, whether I'm in the club or "practicing" at home. I'll incorporate a new move I'll see, but mostly I just improvise. Just have fun!!

There's two types of good dancers.  People who are technically trained and people who just 'dance' well or 'feel the music'   In my experience the latter category of people typically have highly developed mind-body connections.  

Don't learn to technical dance - thats try hard and lame.

Get out of your head and into your body.  Give less fucks & just vibe with the music & people & energy on the dance floor.  Go with your flow whatever that is. (Hint, maybe theres a correlation between meditation and your mind body connection) (another hint, how much meditation has distant light done?  How 'in his head' do you think this guy is?)

Happy dancing

Aight listen up I know this dance stuff better than I know game so here I go. Most importantly you need to be having fun shamelessly. Completely disregard the fact that anyone is watching if that is something that bothers you. Once you get used to it having people stare won't even matter to you, I actually like it when people do. 

Also, I would say that knowing actual dance is not necessary at all and letting go is far more important since that's how you have fun, but flaunting your skills sure won't hurt either. Plus it feels great to know that it's impressive when you dance. Back to the significance of knowing actual dance, in my experience no white person who hasn't taken a dance class or had some kind of proper instruction has no fucking clue what to do with their feet/legs. Black people, I don't know what it is but I will be forever jealous of your rythmic talent and dance skills. I think you could probably find some videos or some shit like that for what to do with your legs, if not take a basic hip hop dance class or something. I used to be friends with a guy who took dance classes and he taught me some basics steps for electronic music and hip hop type music and I just base what I do off of those.

As for the rest of the body I personally just do whatever comes to me. Like pickup when you have reference experiences its easy. Like I just do something I've done before (that I probably saw someone else pull off) while your average guy would be lost not knowing what to do and either stand there, stop dancing, or do something silly. Not that there is anything wrong with being silly.

As far as practice goes if you are going to clubs there is that, I personally just dance for like 30 seconds when music comes on to get my practice in here and there. My friends have parties with dance music too so I dance there.

Above all else though its about having fun, and that won't happen if you are worried about what others think!

All you need to do is listen to the groove&rhythym and start improvising on it, the most important thing is that you stick to the groove and have fun.
You don't need to dance like  Michael Jackson in order to get women attracted to you while you dance.
Yesterday i was doing what my dance having fun dancing to the groove, a woman all the sudden came and kissed me, i didn't even saw her face then she ran back to the crowd, and i was like " oh cool , now back to my dancing".
