Basheva, there's usually four corners in a room. You can keep yours, and I'll take a different one. That leaves two corners for a couple of other miscreants.

Katharyn, I'm still trying to determine whether it's better with the lights "on" or "off" in the dancingpaul site. I think they're both equally nutty.

It's easy to be famous nowadays... :)

This one goes out to all you folks with high speed Internet connections. While Dancing Paul (www.dancingpaul.com) is still our favorite bootie-shaker on the Web, "thedanceman" at WatchMeDance.com (www.watchmedance.com) is a highly entertaining boot-scooter in a "hey, look, there's a dude dancing" kind of way.

A new guide to "dancing properly":

Movers and shakers
There are those who reckon they can really cut it on the dancefloor. Maria McErlane in The Sunday Times offers a guide.


Dancing is ultimately a primal peacock display geared towards encouraging procreation. Put simply, if you dig the way someone shakes their booty, sooner or later you’ll be compelled to take things to their logical conclusion and more little dancers will be born. I’m not talking about the sort of dancing you train for hours to perform: perfecting the merengue or maintaining competitive-level salsa will alienate you at the office party, where it’s advisable to try to fit in.

From "Movers and Shakers":

Quote:
THE DRUNKEN STUMBLE Belief in one’s ability to dance is absolutely proportionate to the amount of alcohol you’ve consumed. The stumbler will try — and fail — to turn a stagger, fall or lunge into an as-yet-unperformed piece of fancy choreography. They will enjoy themselves enormously, blissfully unaware of the ever-increasing space opening up around them.
I once agreed to go to a Cajun dance with someone who eventually demonstrated this style of dancing. Hint: Never dance with someone who starts the evening by saying, "Let's wait awhile to dance. I can't dance until I've had at least three beers."

Now you tell me. Must be the same guy who asked me to dance. No, it wasn't in that type of bar.

I also remember several years ago at a ballet gala when a friend tried to teach me a step that everyone else, including her parents, got but me. I blamed it on my then new tuxedo...
