    How can I kindly refuse if someone constantly ask me to dance ?

    There are a couple of ladies who constantly ask me to dance whenever they see me in the milonga. However, I'm not very happy to dance with them because of various of reasons, such as uncomfortable connection, lack of following skills, bad smells, strong perfumes, etc. Some say that men should...
