School Valentine's Day Dance was today! Y'know what bugs me a bit though? The teens "dancing". To them, slow dancing is holding one another's shoulders and rocking back and forth. THIS IS NOT F*CKING DANCING! That is holding each other and while it IS romantic, it's not dancing! Dancing is tango, disco, doe-si-doe, little shoulder movements, anything but rocking back and forth! And yes, I am actually a pretty good dancer so before you can ask, I CAN judge!

My Mom is a Dance Instructor. This is technically dancing. Moving your body to music. It's all a matter of opinion, I think. It may not be "Good dancing". But some people like to do it. Call it what you will. Does it really matter? Haha

Its all really a matter of opinion. Being a competitive dancer in a few genres, gives me a knowledge on some dancing. It comes in multiple forms and multiple emotions. Each differing from the next. ( I find it to be way of expression through a series of moves (they dont even have to be real dance moves (like pas de bourree's or pirouette's, chaines or fouette's)))
However, I personally think that standing there and rocking back and forth isnt really dancing. Its more of a way to create awkward tension sometimes (especially if with someone you dont really know all that much). Sure it can be romantic, but its not really dancing

(This is my own personal opinion. Yours may differ)
