Stereotypically speaking, in the US women love to/want to dance, and men want to avoid it. I constantly hear from women that they want to learn to dance, or that they have always wanted to learn to dance. I almost never hear that from men. The closest I've heard is "all the singles ads say that they want a guy who can dance, so I guess I have to learn." The problem, of course, is that partner dancing requires a partner, and if a woman doesn't have a partner they can't partner dance. It doesn't matter how many lessons a lady has taken, if she attends a wedding or party and there aren't any guys there who want to / know how to dance, she's stuck. Why do women bother learning to dance if they don't have a built-in partner?
