I'm looking for sombody that can spare approx. 2 hours a week to provide dance tuition & l'll pay! How does £25 per hour sound? NB. This is not 'a wind up'! Cheers. :dance: :dance:

My advice is, dont matter what you do on the dance floor as long as your enjoying it, would rather watch people with smiles on there face's, than watch two people trying to 'outdance' each other, just do what feels good :thumbsup:

And welcome aboard :yes:

True! But it gets frustrating at times when l'd like to eg. stomp and can't. I wouldn't be trying to outdance anybody just trying to increase the enjoyment factor! I have a smile on my face when a see 'good dancers'

And welcome aboard :yes:

Hiya and welcome to the mad house!

If you're serious then none other than Paul from Sheffield ... best male dancer I know ...

Although as Baz says above, just do what you feel comfortable with on the floor, everyone has their own style :yes:

i have a mate who has been trying to learn how to dancefor over 20yrs and i have giveen up but he never ever stops trying and he dont have to pay nobody a penny most of the fun is in learning stage .now i can do a bit spins ect ,but to start with i took a table out .and all the drinks and left 3 lads sat looking over at each other with me on the floor saying sorry (notts palis).so get out and teach yourself and good look (it dont hurt as much as they say)

I'm pretty sure i speak for practically everybody on here.... nobody gives a rats arse what you look like on the outside... it's what you feel on the inside that matters.... dance for yourself mate ... no one else...

..... & paying someone £25 an hour isn't going to teach you that... because that's something that can't be taught... not at any price.

Oh... and welcome to the mad house that is Soul Source :yes:

If soul music grips your heart, put your fave tunes on, pull the curtains and practice. :thumbsup:

How long did it take you to work out that if you pushed your pockets and their contents into your undies you could swallow dive, handstand etc without a worry. :boxing:sad.gif

But why does nobody dance with a smile on their face? Everybody I see dances poker-faced (& later shit faced). Is dancing that serious a business?

I'd like a dancing tip (besides "don't").

Spins - best done on the ball of the foot or the heel?

I've been thinking of this too since I saw a video of myself dancing at a soul do looking totally depressed and almost angry on the floor.

After seeing that video I've now tried to smile a bit more while dancing :P , but I've soon given up. I guess that when you're concentrated on not bumping into those around you at the same time as you're (hopefully) listening to music that is so good that it almost hurts :yes: , smiling becomes more difficult. Plus, you use more muscles when you're smiling than if you're just poker-faced and dancing is hard work as it is. Shame that my default state is looking angry... :P

Also you lose your breath quicker, when singing loud while dancing :P:P:P

That's it. :yes:

If you have a refined enough ear in the first place to recognize that this rare soul malarkey is a good thing. Then you'll probably have the smarts to shuffle adequately anyway.

However you look matters not a fig to the crowd. No one will take the pish if you're enjoying yourself. That's the thing, imo it should be you making your moves. Not paying twenty five quid to dance like him.

Soul music - in through the ears, out through the feet .. :P

I must say I`d pay £25 an hour to learn to dance....but its never going to happen, i just havent got it....to be honest I always wanted to be a dancer but realised i was`nt going to make it...thats why i started DJing!! Now i just dance for myself....

I must admit i made a comment in the modern room in Prestatyn this year, after seeing the best dancer I`ve ever seen "I`d give all of my records to be able to dance like that"...i got a few laughs....but i meant it!!

Just do what you feel like, looking good might be cool but if you need to go on a Royal Marines Commando course just to get there, kinda defeats the object. A woman I know recently joined the NS scene, watched others dance, got on the floor and did her own thing. She said she stopped worrying about what others thought after about 5 minutes. As someone else said, nobody cares..................don't believe me ? Then you haven't seen Johnny Redpants dance. Chris L

I have to say, reading this thread has set my mind at rest! I often watch everyone and think... 'oh crikey I'm sure I just don't look that cool when I dance'!! But hey, from what everyone's saying it really doesn't matter! Like everyone else when the tunes come on I just can't NOT dance! So, I shall now happily carry on doing what I do and it seems to get me through!! At the end of the day I just love it. I guess that's a bonus of not knowing anyone, I really don't care what anyone thinks!

Mate, watch people, give a fancy move a try if you feel the desire and REALLY don't give a monkeys what anyone else thinks. As has already been said, it's just you and the music and as long as you're enjoying it then that's what will feel good.
