1 Flat surface (preferably smooth)
2 Legs (legs are helpful!, but not required);
2 Arms (helpful as well, but you can manage without them)
1 Spirit (only 1, but a very broad and all-embracing 1 is best)
1 piece of Music
1 large compulsion to move when you hear or otherwise think of rhythm
1 Ego that can withstand the worry about how stupid you probably will look to other people
Self confidence (1 large bushel)
At least 1 sense of rhythm recommended (but you can get away without it if you have to)
- Get some music. Listen closely to it. If you listen well, your dance will be good; if you don’t, you may well look pathetic.
- Allow your body to sway/step or otherwise depart from the position in which you originally find yourself.
- Feel free to repeat this movement many times in an order that corresponds with your music.
- Smile. This helps you dance better. People often forget to do this.
- Remember that good dance is not about “steps” but about “weight” and “form in space.” Think about how you distribute your weight when you step or otherwise move.
- Respect the space of the people dancing around you — don’t hurt or otherwise impede them from doing their thing.
