What are the rules of dance?

The key is to know them well. When I talk about the rules of dance I always say that the basic two rules are,


1. When you see that a dancer is getting nervous, and is trying to avoid or get away from the music, take out the dance floor.

2. Remember, the most important rule is, “be the dance floor.”

You can play these “rules” from scratch, or, try to memorize them by just watching people perform, but they all come with a big challenge and should be practiced. We have the same rules if we’re going to play a game of basketball. The rules are that you have to take the ball from one hand to the other. You have to step to the side, and then put both hands on the ball, then you’re out.

When dancing, keep this “rule”, if you’ll excuse the pun. Once you’ve established that you understand the basic rules of dance, there’s no reason why you couldn’t try out some more of them with some interesting variations.

How to be a happy girl:

The happiest person you can be is the one that has nothing to say. What’s more, it doesn’t have to be the person who is always the loudest, the strongest or the one with the strongest muscles. To be the happiest, you have to be the one that is the least talkative, the most silent, the one who can be totally relaxed and at peace with whoever is around.

In the end, if it were up to me, dancing would be a hobby more than it is. It would be something I enjoy for a few hours, rather than something I have to put in my days to get through. But as long as I’m happy, I’m happy. The reason is because as long as you’re happy, you’re going to do all the right things.

It’s not often that a movie comes out of nowhere to take the #1 spot at the weekend box office. Most recently it was Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout which dominated the awards circuit to become the #1 movie of the weekend. It is expected to take at least $50M. The other big surprise was A24’s Troll 2 which took the #2 spot on the weekend chart for a huge $7M in fourth place behind the sequel. That’s only an 11% drop, the closest competitor. Troll
