You Can Lead a Horse to Dance, but You Can't Make Him Foxtrot
Question: How do you get a dude to dance when he really doesn’t like it? I hate to think that I’ll never get to go out dancing with my boyfriend.
Answer: Does your boyfriend need to embrace dancing or do you need to learn to enjoy it on your own? That's the question.
I hate to breakdance it to you, but the jitterbug isn't contagious. In fact, the more a dance lover tries to convince a non-lover to get his tush on the dance floor, the more he'll despise it.
You're better off leaving him alone and getting freaky by your own damn self. If you enter your happy dance zone around him often (and convincingly) enough, then maybe just maybe he'll consider giving it a real shot.
Tangoing with other partners—especially strapping ones named Ivan—may cure him of his dancephobia rather miraculously as well.
