I'm not sure if this is the case everywhere, but for the most part, dancing in the United States is generally a girl shaking her butt in some guys crotch (coupled with the whole break dancing thing, but not everyones that talented!) ^^'

Now don't get me wrong, I don't exactly have a problem with it, but sometimes I think its just a little too much. Its as if were telling younger kids that its okay to have some guys hands on your butt, its just dancing...but if its off the dance floor, then thats a "no-no"!

Is dancing like this everywhere, if not then how do you dance?
Do you think theres anything wrong with dancing this way?

(...and I'm not exactly skilled with the forum index, its a little too cramped for me, so if this has been done before...woops.)

actually 1/2 the people I know are in dance crews, if not they're breakers or pop lockers.
I think you're referring to more "club dancing"? If so.. that's kinda expected.
and I dont think thts just the US alone, mainly anywhere really.

Me personally, I can't dance to save my life.

I understand , but it depends the type of music u dance to!

For example if you dance:Reggaeton or Hip-hop , usually the girl shakes her butt in guys crotch

Salsa , Trance , Bachata & Merengue are totally different

To discourage girls shaking their butt at a guy's crotch, next time they do it, take off your pants and thrust.

Then again I don't get dancing. You can show me the best dancer out there and I'll be like *yawnnnnn* "go get a hobby"

Well the kind of dancing I do is reffered to numerous things such as, hardcore dancing, slam dancing, and two stepping or skanking.

In which case I do both hardcore dancing and two-stepping.
Of course the downside of this is that people get hurt. So yeah.
And I know alot of people frown upon it and think it's moronic,
but it's actually a good work out for me. haha.

I'm a violent person naturally, so it fits my nature.

And I only "booty dance" with my boyfriend.

Dancing is like that here too. Most the people I know, though, swing dance, ballroom dance, and other things like that. We also have awesome dance performances.
Usually at school dances, the teachers try to discourage 'dirty dancing'.

if you change the music in to something slow..girls wouldn't be able to shake their ass to the music coz it doesn't suit the occasion..

^haha, I know a lot of people who can even make slow dancing dirty.

^^Teachers/Parents always break up dirty dancing, but everyone continues once their backs are turned. So its a bit hard to stop :P

Slam dancing, skanking? *doesn't really get it* sounds fun though XD

[okay everyone is saying "shaking their ass in a guy's crotch" it's too funny. stop xD]

Yeah some people they can turn a slow song dirty xD

I remember reading an article somewhere about this girl who got upset that their school was banning "dirty dancing" at dances...
She complained that it was the way she learned how to dance and grew up dancing that way...

I don't think you would be dancing like that when you're 4 or 5...=.=

"booty to crotch" dancing is done everywhere..and if you think what's done here in the states is bad.. you should try seeing some of the crazy caribe stuff... those things still shock me, and i'm somewhat desensitized.. I do the "booty dancing" when i go to clubs or parades (when there isn't really much space to do too many movements).. but i also do other things like meringue, salsa and bachata..especially bachata

On our cruise, a new rule was invented, due to one girl. She had to keep her shoulders above the hips/waist of the guy

My school actually made a rule on one dance for this for one of the best dances of the year. >.< There were a lot of people that didn't want to go because of this new rule and this girl's mom was also mad at the school so she hosted a separated non-school dance on the same day of the school's dance. lol There were only about 30 people who bought tickets to the school's dance. Awhile later there was all of this breaking the law crap etc. so they had to cancel. It was pretty sad because the court for the dance wasn't really legit.

In all the school dances I've been to, almost EVERYONE danced like that. hmmm it actually looks pretty funny when you see it >.< like this one guy flopping his arms around and thinking it was cool. -_- some things are better kept to yourself.
