Background: I'm not a good dancer, but with the help of the forums and practice I am understanding the basics. Issues: - It seemed like there I didn't know how do much more than grind to the beat of the song that was playing. At times it seemed a bit repetitive and both and I the girl thought it was boring and mechanical. Is this normal, given my crappy dancing? Can I fix it? - It also seemed like it was much more fun to dance with a girl who: I was comfortable with. The girl I liked dancing with most wasn't the greatest, but she was fun and I wasn't scared because I didn't think about messing up in front of her. Could dance well. With the girl leading me in whatever way it is that felt right, I thought it was more fun and felt like I was grinding well. was into it. I know it's partly my fault for not knowing how to spice up grinding, but it was more fun when they were energetic about it nonethless. I guess my overall question is how to make it more fun, even with a marginally fun girl. p.s.: I understand that it's supposed to be all in the knees, but my stupid head/body doesn't completely understand what not using my hips means. Are my hips my butt? Do I bend both knees at once?
