Hello, Ive recently decided to take up club/hip hop/modern dancing lessons so that I can finally learn how to move on the dance floor. Having quit drinking recently, I find that dancing is a perfect alternative to spend your time at a club/bar, instead of nervously sitting at a table gulping down alcohol because your lack of confidence in your dancing ability. However, I do have one question concerning how to approach women on the dance floor without being creepy. Since ive never really been that confident on the dancefloor, I usually kind of just go out there and feel really creepy trying to get someone to dance with me. I dont know how some guys do it. I have friends who know absolutely nothing about dancing except for unskilled "grinding" and they seem to usually go out and find a girl to dance with. I have even seen guys approach women from behind and grab them to start grinding, which in my opinion is more than just creepy - its forceful. I understand that women who are out on the dancefloor probably want a guy to dance with, but I still feel kind of creepy just going out there and starting to dance with a complete stranger without so much as a word (talking on the dancefloor is usually not how its done because you can barely hear yourself talk). So basically, I want to know the "etiquette" of approaching women on the dancefloor and initiating dance with them without being forceful or creeping them out. Any guys who are successful with this.... can you help me out?
