Learn 4 dirty dancing do's and don'ts with this dance video from Howcast.


Ava: Hi everybody. How are you doing? My name's Ava. This is Loretta and this is Anthony. Right now, we're going to teach you do's and don'ts on the dance floor, when it comes to guys and girls. So one thing to remember when you're doing this is to keep it clean.

Have it fun, but not be too sexy. Anthony is going to take us through the do's and don'ts with guys, because he probably knows better about that than we do. So do's and don'ts, how to keep it clean and sexy.

Anthony: All right, guys. When we're dancing with a girl, we don't want to get too much in their space, because if we're too much in their space they're going to back away right away. So if we're coming over here like this the whole time, that's the face you're going to get and you don't want that. You want to keep it calm, cool and collected.

So we're just going to step and touch, and step and touch. Now with this, you're keeping the eye contact. You're getting to know the person and there's a smile. Now when you're going to try and dance more with a girl more and get closer, with hands. Here, we're cool. Here, we're not so cool.

Loretta: Not cool. We're not cool. So let's keep it in a middle way.

Ava: Not too high, not too low.

Loretta: Not too high, not too low. Just right in the middle. That's cool. Girl's hands can go on their shoulders, whatever, if you want to get a little closer. But we could still keep that groove together. Yes, so don'ts are too high, too low. Do's are in the middle, clean and cool, awesome?

Ava: Yes.

Loretta: Anymore do's and don'ts with that, you think? I think it's good, right?

Anthony: I think we are good.

Loretta: Okay, so all right, girls.

Ava: Girls do's and don'ts. Just keep it clean and classy. No guy is going to want to go up to a girl if they're going crazy.

Loretta: If they think they're too good. If they think they're too good. You want to be welcoming and inviting.

Ava: Anthony said no.

Anthony: Yeah, yeah. You obviously, don't want somebody who's just going a little too much out of control.

Loretta: Like if they are going crazy, that's a no. You don't want to do that.

Anthony: Abandon ship.

Ava: Ladies, again, simple, clean, easy. Be inviting and welcoming to the guys, so you can find each other's groove. And then if you want to get in it with them you'll be on the same groove, so be cool. Ready? And we can step touch; step, move it opposite, opposite, opposite.

Anthony: All right.

Loretta: Opposite, opposite, opposite, hey, hey. If you want girls, you can turn it around. If you're feeling it, maybe get lower, hey - hey - hey - hey.

Ava: Awesome, awesome, clean, simple, easy, fun.

Loretta: All right, do's and don't's. Yeah, not too sexy.

Ava: Yeah.

Loretta: So there are do's and don'ts for guys and girls dancing together.
