How important is being able to dance? I know girls really like a guy who is smooth on his feet, but is it something that he just has to have some skill at? I can't dance at all, besides really slowly swaying hips slow dancing badly. I'm beyond two left feet. I probably would say I have two left feet and a right foot. I also really don't like to dance. Slow swaying, since I wouldn't call standing up swaying your hips really dancing, is OK to a degree, but it isn't something I want to do all the time, especially with lots of people around.

I am a competitive dancer (ballroom) and if a guy can dance ballroom as well, he definitely earns some extra points from me! However, I also love teaching guys to dance. I had an interest about a year ago who was like you...three or four left feet, and a bit afraid to dance in public. I convinced him to come to a dance with me, and it wasn't long before I had taught him not only proper slow-swaying technique, but also some basic swing and salsa. He really let his inhibitions go, and we were both having a great time by the end of it. It's not as hard as you think if you just put some effort into it and aren't afraid to try.
The important thing to me is not whether a guy can dance, but whether he's willing to attempt it. It says a lot about his personality, whether he's willing to risk possibly looking silly in order to spend time with a girl out on the dance floor or make her smile. It's cute when a guy shows that he would rather be out there with you learning than standing by the edge of the room trying to look cool. And I'm sure if you are genuinely interested in going out and dancing with a girl, she'd be glad to show you some moves.0
