Problem is only about 1 in 20 straight men have rhythm much less can pull off a Saturday Night Fever "Flamboyant" move.

Most (straight) guys only dance for 1 reason.

I have many doubts about this claim. For the most part I've observed over many years how this supposedly flamboyant male was simply a drunken potatohead. Of course I'll be the first to admit that my dancing skills are very elementary and mainly involve shifting my weight from one foot to the other. But I'd have to change that opinion when you consider the skills of Latin American dancers, both male and female. I've really gotten into the music of South America, Spain, and other places in recent years and it makes American pop music look pathetic (which it is). So I guess that it depends on the culture you're that you're part of. I've seen some really cool dancing in places like Miami where male dancing is a much more sophisticated art form but I've also witnessed people like myself who flop around like a country bumpkin whose only hope is that no one will remember how ridiculous we look when they wake up with a hangover the next day.

Dance like you're making love...

Very smooth, very precise and deliberate. Pay particular attention to what your hips and butt are doing. For women, this means moving in such a way to enhance the rear and for men, the front. It is all vaguely simulating sex itself which both sexes find most appealing.

I once tried to give a new friend a crash course in dancing with the same advice. He put his beer down, walked out on that floor, and proceeded to awkwardly dry-hump the air like a dog on a leg. Damn, dude wasn't even on beat. Just another example of advice gone horribly wrong

I've been told that when I practice my t'ai-chi I look hot, but for some reason I can't translate those moves into dancing. The only exception was the one time I went out with my lady friend, whom I had taught one of the forms - we translated the t'ai-chi moves into dance moves.

Not hot, but certainly funny and fun.

Maybe if I spend another 40 years studying dancing now, I might get it...

Eh...at least I can beat up the people that laugh at me.
