    If you want to dance then it can be achived - a confidet exciting dance for you to do as you wish. If you have a stereo put it off! You must learn how to exert yourslef into being a work of art.

    Dancing is all about communication, a langauage of your body. If you see someone do something that you like, go lock yourself in your room and stand in front of the mirror. Now you see what is, and what your audience will see, because we all want to dance in front of people, yes?

    All you have to do is exert yourslef lie you saw someone else do. Look into the mirror and copy them. You will feel uncomfortable at first because you will see how you do not do it the same, but, no two people are the same looking nor the same in behaviour towards expressing themselves.

    First I need to give you the seed of confidence. You may feel better about yourslef if you were to copy a person and then imporvise. Do what you picture in your mind, as dancing is conscious communication between body and mind. You need to reach for something to get half way, yes?

    Now, if you are trying all sorts of silly things you need to learn to laugh at yourself. Do not resist the idea that you will start dancing well at any stage all of a sudden, you need to relax and flex in a manner that is a style of your own! Yes parrot fashion dancing is bad! All these dancers you see working a routine is bad news because there is nothing from within creating a motion, it is just a 'pick up line', a 'plan' that they will drum into their heads. Now if they were to try something different they might lose thier 'formula' that they dummed into thier heads and worked very hard to get right... do you want to end up like that?

    So, if you were to just make something up and watch yourself in the mirror, nobody is going to see! You may try all sorts of wierd things. You must not aim to satisfy a beat, but rather to be the beat. Be the artist and communicator you want to be, and always try to do the same thing you like again. If you were to spend just thirty seconds doing this then you must pull a move that you like, and remember to punctuate your good moves with new things, roll the dice! If you were to just do your favourite moves over and over again then you will not learn new ones. Move on, do not hold yourself down with the same thing over and over again. Say yes to trying new moves. If you make the mistake of doing this after rehersed session you will feel feeble that it is not as coordinated as it is if you learn a routine, but trying new things - saying yes - is good for you.

    If you were to spend your thirty seconds in the mirror you will do something you like. First you will probably try to do the worst thing you can thnik of - breaking the ice. Then you will probably do something you respect more - carrying the torch. Then you might do something in between that and your next move that comes naturally, and this will be you dancing, and, being rather natural will look good, or we hope so anyway. Just carry on rolling with the punches until your confidence grows and you feel more comfortable with yourself as a 'dancer' or 'artist'.

    So, you feeling it? Yes do it! Try it! Carry on! Woops that sucked, regain you balance now... If you were to make a mistake you must get up and carry on. Never end on a mistake, always try to mend your self image, even if it is simple to say the least. You need to encourage yourself, nobody is going to laugh or comment until you unveil yourself to whoever you want to. Get together with a friend and laugh at each other! Yes, laugh! Is this something serious? Are you serious about dancing? Is it your job? Will you lose your house if you cannot do something someone else can. You might shake a little bit funny at first, but, as your muscles learn to felx and relax as you want them to - through physical conditioning - your body learns to make what your mind sets as a goal. The more you practive stuff like sport the more your muscles will develop and the more comfortable you will be with your bodies message, to yourself, or to your *fans*.

    Keep going. Laugh at reality and dream of what you will do when your muscles develop properly. Laugh at each other, do not lie! Lies lead to insecurity for yourself and others. This funny little voice that says it was good is no good for you. When you fall you must get up or be helped up, and end on a good note, please do not let yourself remember the bad things. The bad things come and go, but your natural conversions from move to move - the real you - will develop quite quickly. Give yourself thirty seconds, fourty seconds or so and see if you are excited. If not then maybe you are too timid, or are notpositive enough, If this si ssomethign new you are trying then expect to be a bit wobbly or shaky, but never get serious about it because it is not important, is it? If you can laugh at yourself then you all set, if you serious, well, then maybe it is not such a good idea, yes?

    Treat it like a joke! Make up the most arrogant moves you can think of, and pull your expression into a aristocratic one or mock the people that take it seriously, as they are too proud to have fun, yes? Being able to laugh helps you dance, and dancing enables you to relieve stress through your body, a nice thing to do after work or school.

    I have a dilemma involving dancing...

    When people say "Are you dancing?" I say: "No I'm pissed".
    When people say "Are you pissed?" I say: "No I was dancing actually"

    :P
