So you’ve finally worked up the courage to enter into the world of nightclub dancing. You’ve had some lessons, psyched yourself up for a great night out, rallied your friends and embarked out for your first big adventure! You’re nervous, but optimistic, and you harbor a few hopes that you might even meet someone special. Congratulations! This is a huge step!
Nightclub dancing, you’ll find, is much like an Arthur Murray Dance Party. There are loads of people socializing and you never know when someone will pull you out to dance. Your training has prepared you to accept the hand of any stranger interested in taking you for a spin, but even so there are still a few things to remember when you’re out in the real world.
