Asking someone to dance is as much an art as dancing itself. The proper way to do so goes back centuries, to when men first started asking women to dance. Many things have not changed, but thankfully some things have.
What has not changed in the way to ask someone to dance is the following.
- You must approach the person to ask them.
- Please say the following, “would you like to dance”.
- Please put your left hand out as an offering.
- Escort the person onto the dance floor.
What has changed? The fact that women now have the right to ask men to dance. Ladies, I highly recommend asking. I understand the idea of wanting him to ask you, but there are more women than men. Sometimes the only way to get the dance with the gentleman that you want to dance with is to ask.
The wonderful thing about dancing is that you can dance with everyone and anyone, it does not have to mean anything more than just a dance. Please keep in mind that asking someone to dance takes a lot of courage. When you yourself are asked to dance, try your best to accept dance invitations. After all, no one like rejection.
