As far as the ladies went,I would approach and politely ask if they wanted to dance. I never just jumped in front of them and started dancing with them.
Would still love to go dancing if the crowd were in our age group of 40+ and enjoyed today's dance tunes, unfortunately they want to hear nothing but yesterday's music and that just doesn't excite me when it comes to a club environment. Definately not interested in being the creepy old lady at the club. Even though when I went out to a club with my daughter some young cutie on his way out, stopped beside me, whispered in my ear how much he loved the way I move my body. Wasn't hard to stand in one place and move, not sure he would have thought my moves were great if the place hadn't been packed and I could do more than just move my hips and step a little from side to side.

It's still fun to go to a dance club with my geriatric (the over 40 rump shakers, a few 30 somethings thrown in for saftey,) friends. When in a large group, it doesn't feel so weird and we have each other to dance with, often other people join in and dance with us.

I love, loovveee seeing people enjoy themselves on the dance floor, whether they have great moves or dance like they're having a seizure, it's all good as long as you appear to be having a blast; you get high marks for getting out there.

Men, how are you approaching women on the dance floor? How do you get your groove on without looking like a creep.
I'll dance to her either from the side or if I spot her in front of me I sort of glance over and look away, as we are all programmed to look when we think someone is looking she'll probably look my way.
regard of going from side or front I will get a response that will either say "maybe" or "no".
if it's "no" I dont even bother.
if it's maybe I get a bit closer, bit by bit. when I'm really close I pull away, almost take a step back, showing that I'm not sneaking up on her, I'm just dancing around.
Then i get a bit closer again, and maybe try go get a bit dirtier with her, if she's into it we'll go like that for a couple of minutes before I go for a gentle kiss on her neck or lower ear to then try the mouth.

At that point she'll stop me before I reach her mouth if she isn't interested, and I leave right away unless she seemingly wants me to stick around, like holding me to her when I let go of her or similar...

So I'm basically reading for "no"s which avoids awkwardness, and is fairly fast without being aggressive.

Well, if you have a sense of rhythm (and you probably do; excuse my "stereotyping"), you can learn. I really like Latin dances and I tried taking lessons, but I have two left feet...

What about those Desi parties lol

In most clubs I've been to most of the guys dance badly, I don't know if it's a swedish thing that everyone sucks at dancing but if it's like that over there too nobody should have anything to fear on the dancefloor.

I'm about as good at dancing as a rock is at swiming, 0 sense of rythm, that doesn't mean I should sit at home and hide, it means I'm still better than 60% of the drunks down at the club.

Well, there used to be even a movie "White Men Can't Jump," but we're not allowed to "stereotype" anymore... IMO, more women than men are good dancers and yes, Swedes are particularly stiff.
