Dear T2T: I’m in high school and the first dance of the school year is coming up. I really want to go and hang out, but I’m really nervous because I am not a good dancer. Can you tell me a little bit about these dances? If I don’t dance, am I going to stand out? It sounds like fun, but I don’t want to go and look lame. — No Twerking for Me

I think that you should go to the dance, because they’re really fun and a great way to hang out with your friends. Just because you think you can’t dance doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy yourself. My freshman year was the first time I’ve ever heard of "twerking" dance. But even though I didn’t know what I was doing I ended up being really great at it and once you try new things it sticks with you. So try new things don’t hold back and be afraid because you won’t go anywhere in life if you don’t try at least once. Honestly you won’t look dumb if you’re not dancing because not everyone dances; some just go because they like to listen to the music the dj is playing and again to just hang with their friends. So don’t worry about anything just go and enjoy yourself you won’t regret it.

First of all dances in high school can be fun whether you dance or just hang out with friends. Yes it’s a dance but not everyone will be dancing, and nobody is a good dancer their first time so it is nothing to be ashamed of! From personal experience, the awkwardness you might feel at dances goes away quickly and you get more and more comfortable with yourself and others. And you’ll never know what it is like until you try. So, don’t worry about standing out in a bad way because if you are enjoying yourself that is what is important. If you still feel nervous go with a group of friends whom you feel comfortable with and can stay with throughout the dance. And just remember the most important thing is just enjoy yourself and have fun!
