How To Pretend You Are A Good Dancer – Seven Tips For Guys

If you’re hitting the club tonight, or if you need emergency dance lessons for that big occasion fast and you haven’t had the time to practice our moves yet (shame on you!) there are still some things you can do to “fool” everyone to think you are a good (enough) dancer. Because sometimes, it’s better to just paint over the rubix cube.


1) Sing The Words

If you’re short on some dance moves, one of the best ways to show that you can still have fun on the dance floor is to sing along to the music. So even if you prefer Metallica to Rihanna, check out the current list of Top Club Songs, and listen to them before you go out!

2) Grab A Beer

One of the most common questions we get at Learn Club Dance is what to do with your hands. So to make sure your arms aren’t doing anything freaky, grab a beer when you head to the dance floor and remember: don’t dance with a mixed drink lest you spill that Jack and Coke all over your date’s new dress, keep your free hand out of your pocket, and if all else fails, just “snap” your fingers. And I know I don’t even have to say it, but I will just in case, don’t fist pump! That’s for fighting, not dancing! Okay, one more thing about beers: Try to hold your drink at waist level. It looks more confident than holding a drink up by your chest!

3)Make Eye Contact

Dancing is all about being in the moment and having a great time. So don’t forget to smile, make sure you’re keeping eye contact with that special lady you’re dancing with, and don’t look around the room! And don’t worry about stepping on her toes! If you are dancing close enough where you might step on her feet, then she already likes you anyway!

4)Copy Everyone Else’s Dance Moves

Don’t know your left foot from your right? No worries! Steal a glance at the other guys dancing around you and just do what they do! Sure you won’t be the best dancer in the club, but you’ll be doing what everyone else is, and it’s a sure fire way to blend in!

5)Dance To Your Partner’s Beat

We have some great free videos on our blog and on youtube that teach you how to keep a beat. But if all else fails, just dance to your partner’s tune and even copy her dance moves (unless she starts twerking!) And if you’re still having trouble, just remember that the beat is not THAT important unless you’re grinding together. If you’re dancing slightly apart, and you’re having fun and smiling, your date will never know you’re not keeping to the perfect beat anyway!

6)Don’t Do The Running Man

A lot of beginners that can’t dance try to make a joke out of it, but for me, it just draws more attention to the fact that you can’t dance. Instead, pick one or two “go to” moves and work on making them look really good! And since you can almost guarantee that a circle will form, especially if you are learning to dance for a wedding, take the time to youtube a move you can bust out in the middle of a circle or check out our video part of the Elite Series we call “Get In A Circle And Dance – Breakdance Moves For The Club.” Busting out even an easy move for a few seconds is so much more fun than saying no when all of your friends are pulling you in.

7)Get Around

For my seventh tip for how to pretend you’re a good dancer, make sure you are getting around through the course of the night. And I know what you’re thinking now . . . but that’s dirty. What I mean is that you should make an effort to not only dance in different parts of the dance floor, but that you should also dance with different people. You’ll be showing everyone that you’re the confident type of guy who knows how to have fun. And who knows, you might even be making that special someone jealous by dancing with everyone else!

BONUS TIP) Spin and Turn Your Date

As guys, the secret to being a good dancer is to make sure your date is having fun on the dance floor. In my club dance system, I reveal how to create attraction on the dance floor, how to change up your moves to make them fun and spontaneous, and how to easily spin your date around the dance floor. My students always tell me that the one thing that sets them apart from other dancers in the club, is the ability to spin their date around. And the truth is, spinning and turning your partner on the dance floor is much easier than you think.
