Dancing fool - Phil's Rambling Rants — LiveJournal
i took dance lessons from the UofI dance club (they used to have a website...ah, found it https://netfiles.uiuc.edu/ro/www/DancingIllini/
It was mostly students, but i was a non-student at the time and i think it was $20 or something stupid cheap. We wore jeans and t-shirts.
You have to switch partners to make sure the leads are true, so anyone you go with is not who you'll be dancing with the entire time. i thought this was an excellent way to pick up chicks. (Although, i went with my boyfriend at the time, and i remain striaght. There were MANY more women than men there. And because you switch off every few minutes, you get to chat with everyone.)
i had a great time taking dance lessons, and i hope you go regardless of company.

I understand this; even if it's just a regular social dancing situation and not a class, I'm not assuming any romantic attachment to the person I go with, so I would expect to dance with others. (And if something romantic did develop, that would be great, but that isn't the reason I'm doing this.) Still, having someone that I know is expecting me to show up and dance with them some of the time would be a big help in getting my butt out of my chair.
