    Can you dance? And do you?

    Yes, fox trot, standard tango, waltz, swing.

    Do I? It's been ages and my saying I can is probably overstatement at this point. Would love to learn the quick step and Argentine tango.

    yes, i'd like to think i can dance. been doing Lindy for about 7.5 years and Balboa for 7 years.

    yeah, as the posts show, there's a lot of people that poke fun at dancing and of course there's always the "if you like to dance, you must be gay" but from a social perspective, i've learned a lot about myself through dance. believe me, i had no idea that fresh breath was such a big deal before i started dancing. besides, dancing is just fun.

    i also applaud those that making dancing their craft since it's hard work with virtually no chance of the riches and fame that come with other disciplines like sports, acting, etc.

    No, and only if I have to. I'm really not an expressive person :p

    I was a pretty good dancer but that was many moons ago. It's terrific excercise, I think it kept me thin.

    I think Usher is the greatest dancer of the last decade.
    How can you have Breakin' and not Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo?
    I was waiting for someone to mention it.

    My 5 year old daughter has forbidden me to dance or sing in her presence - apparently, I do too much violence to her aesthetic sensibilities.

    It had to be said, c'mon.

    And props to gamelan for dancing lindy. I wish I would have stuck with my west coast swing classes.

    Ditto. I went to dancing school for two and a half years here in Germany and am really fond of the Waltz (the faster the better when you have a good partner); cha-cha\\ rumba; foxtrot and so on. I dance whenever I find the opportunity and have a partner (about once a week on average- also there are enought balls to attend and the infamous dance tea).
