But he has never danced with me before! Only once, when I dragged him on the dance floor! And he did only the basic then too! And I never show off wiht beginners... and he's no begginer! He's one of the most advanced guys in my school!
It seems like you are approaching this situation in the right manner. maybe the guy has some kind of complex(closet misogynist, etc) or maybe he is just extremely shy or nervous.

Hai hai, I am ScorpionGuy-San, the great Salsa instructor from the West who still can't shift his weight correctly during the basic! :shock: :D

Yes...I could continue my training in kenjitsu...seek out the descendents of Yagyu Munenori...see some Kabuki...and drink SAKE! :twisted: :wink:

(its late and I'm really tired!)

You go ahead Scorpy, and while you are away having fun with gorgeous Romanian girls, I will take over your place and get a taste of 899-guys-to-3-women dances! :wink: :lol:

I have a better idea! You and cocodrilo can come visit where I live and we can all dance a few times...plenty of guys for both of you! Then we can go to Japan and dance more and I'll get to dance with lots of ladies and maybe have some sushi. Then, we'll meet up with Sabor in Romania and then he and I will turn into vampires (Scorpio vampires!) and seduce all of the Romanian women! :D :p :twisted: :kissme: :D

Sound good Sabor? :raisebro:

Sounds like you have everything figured out now have you ?

There is only one small flaw in your carefully layd plan : by the time you reach romania, I'll have come, seen, and conquered !

(what ? We are not still playing world domination ? oups, my bad...)

Ces femmes Roumaine ne peuve etre interessees a toi, mon ami: leur interet les pousse vers les beaux et riches Americains comme moi ! Et je ne parle meme pas du fait que je dance mieux que toi a n'importe quel jour de la semaine! :D :tongue:

Peut-etre pourrions nous resoudre se desaccord par un combat de Savate ou un concours de boisson de vin...bien que je dois admetre qu'en temps que Francais tu gagnerais ce concours! :lol: ;) :cheers:

:) Romanian girls rule! They will conquer anybody who dares enter this territory! :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Ton Francais est tres bon, SG! Ou as-tu etudie? (pardon my lack of accents, but I'm too lazy to look for them!)
 
Les enfants, bravo pour votre français !

I have to say I am amazed by your french, both of you :D

(though in all modesty, I do believe Romanian girls are beautifull, but won't conquer me that easy... except for you squirrel of course ;) )

Scared

Hello everybody!
I am a new entry in this forum!
I took salsa classes for 3 months and I used to go to dance with a friend of mine. She was beginner too and we had much fun together with many mistake.
Since she moved to another city, I have not been to a club to dance. I also stopped to taking classes...
I am scared to go and ask girls I do not know to dance with me... I am in NYC and you can see couples doing amazing stuff :shock: ...
 
Hey welcome francescony. I joined this forum recently too, but I've been salsa dancing for about 5 months now. I still get intimidated sometimes when asking strangers to dance, and the occasionall rejection still bothers me. (Even though I've been told on a few occasions I'm a good dancer) But you know what, you have to just get out there and keep trying, most girls like to dance unless they have reason to think you're creepy or have intentions other than dancing, also a studio dance is a friendlier environment than a club. Think of asking a girl to dance as 'inviting' her to join you in the fun, rather than asking whether she'll accept you as a partner.

Hope this helps. I've been there, and I know it was scary, but it's extremely rewarding once you get past that stage. And here's something else I've noticed, when I was a beginner, everyone looked like amazing dancers, but after you get better, you'll start to notice who are the REALLY good dancers, and they are only few and far between in a sea of dancers.

Welcome francescony, The other week a member here(tj) gave me some excellent advice for feeling comfortable going out dancing, he said you should forget about trying to adjust your dancing radically to make an impression on your partners. Dance how you feel comfortable and the women that like your style will gravitate towards you.
Of course don't take this as a blank check to simply dance without taking your partner into account. Take this as an opportunity to feel comfortable with your dancing without trying to hard to impress your partner.
Yes you will get alot of no's at first but what happens is this, you get a few yes's, every time you meet more people who say yes, after a while you know a whole club full of people that you are confident will say yes when you ask them to dance.
Good luck,

Welcome to DF, francescony :D !

You are in good company. We have members on this forum who are based in NYC, and I'm sure would be happy to introduce you around the clubs 8) .

Once you get over the 'initiation stage', things will flow. You will be fine; please don't let intimidation stop you from fulfilling your love for salsa :wink: ..........
