How do you dance with a random woman at a nightclub? If you meet a woman who is not an experienced follower, how do you dance with her? What are some simple moves that will work with random music and with a random follower? I am shy about leading a dance. These are the questions on my mind, but I don't think a forum can answer that. I will have to go and solve it at a dance class. So I'd like to start a night club thread. I don't think there are many people in their twenties and early thirties here who go to nightclubs, but I'm sure there are some lurking around. I'm a great solo dancer (good rythm, sleak and sexy movement, but no formal training), but when I solo dance next to a woman who is also solo dancing, I do not feel a connection with her and it is not fun. Most people in nightclubs solo dance or grind or obviously if they experienced dancers they can whip out and do hustle or salsa. But most people are not like that and you cannot dance salsa with follower who is not a dancer. There is also other issues in night clubs that I have mostly figured out I think. Feeling insecure because nigthclubs make customers feel bad in order to make them buy alcohol - and the pick up scene - women sending you signals that they want to dance with you and the nuances of a nightlcub being a place where people go to have fun, dance, meet, find a one nightstand, grind, and probably also start fights, do drugs, sell drugs, trap a drunk girl in their arms, date rape, etc, i'm sure all of that is mixed in, I've enjoyed dancing when I brought a date to a nightclub because she was very motivated to dance with me. I also enjoyed dancing with women who wait and watch me and follow my (not so strong) lead. But what about dancing with women who do not wait for and just go ahead and start bouncing in every direction on their own and don't lock their arms? I've included the two links above because they sum up everything I know about night club dancing. I just joined and often people who just join and start posting links right away are spammers. So you would have to copy and paste the links and put in the dots to actually see them, which I figure is too much work for anyone who is not someone that is particularly interested in my post. I would like to hear from other nightclub dancers in their twenties and thirties about how to make night club dancing with a strangers smoother and more enjoyable. Older and younger people who don't go night club dancing, are also welcome to chime in. Please try not to criticize me though and be friendly. Thanks. Also, I would LOVE to hear tips from women for other women at nightclubs. I imagine there are so many risks for women - the guy could be grabby, she can make guys jealous and start a fight or have a jealous guy stalk her or lash at her for rejecting him or dancing with another guy, someone could drug up her drink, she will be pounced on and taken advantage of if she is drunk, her friends might feel offended if a guy asks her to dance and not them, she has to drive off guys who are always surrounding her and grinding up from every direction, etc. I have read this Club Dancing Thread: http://danceforums.com/showthread.php?t=2761 but it seems the posts there are mostly from teenagers who are saying they don't know how to nightclub dance and from people who don't go to nightclubs giving them advice..
