It is not rare to find people who do not know how to dance in a club and yet so many people enjoy going to one.
If you came to this post I am sure you are keen on going to a club and if not you have been thinking of going there.
It is not shameful to go to a club, because most of us have gone to one at some point in their lives.
It will be my honor to share with you some times to keep in mind when you are thinking of going to a club and deciding to dance there (whether accidentally or planned).
So when it comes to how to dance in a club it all depends on the scene or type of club you are going to.
There are different types of clubs so it is vital to know how to conduct yourself depending on the type.
Office party kind club
Suppose you go to a club that is very formal and is organised by your job
In this type of club setting you should bare in mind that you are with your colleagues or more importantly your bosses.
This will make you more cautious and guide your steps.
On this setting you will want to dance in a more appropriate way while still being yourself ofcourse.
This could include doing some small and medium movements such as sway from side to side with your glass of champagne or juice.
Below is a video that you can use as a reference on what I am talking about.
These may be funny but they do give the points.
Proper club setting
You could also par-take in a normal club where you and your friends go out .
These clubs can either full of vibe or not, it just depends.
Here, however I will be talking about any sort of part, from house party all the way to that which you go to at night.
The scene for this club is normally very relaxed and to a large extent everyone tend to be care-free.
This type of party tend to be for the socialites and they tend to thrive a lot here.
Anyhow this type of club does not have any restrictions for dancing as it is a relaxed environment.
Over here you can do whatever but as long as it is in rhthym with the music. Fore example you can not do ballroom dancing while it is house music.
You will not only be the laughed at but you will spoil the mood of people who came to have fun (unless you are in a party with your friends just having fun).
Remember the setting is vital, so if you want ballroom or hip hop or tap dancing just know that there are many places fr that.
If you are looking for dance moves that you can apply to this kind of club are some videos that you can use as reference.
Jazz festivals events
As the name suggest these types of clubs are very jazzy and tend to have a relaxed atmosphere.
The dancing does not have to be hectic however you can still dance freely.
I wouldn't say there are restrictions besides just looking at how the atmosphere is and follow that.
Jazz festivals do not have much requirements as people do not really dance and you can just sway from side to side while clapping.
I hope that the above videos did help you with knowing some moves.
Dancing with a partner
if you are intend on going to the club with your partner or happen to meet someone you feel like dancing with, there are also some tips you can follow.
Just remember when you are dancing with someone it will be a bit hard to want to execute your own moves.
In essence you just have to lead the partner for this.
below is a video that you can follow as a reference.
Now that you know that the scene is more important let us continue with other important points.
Learning how to dance in a club will have everything to do with the type of music the DJ decides to put.
This will definitely decide what mood of dance moves you embrace.
For instance if you attend a jazz type of event you must be sure that the dJ will not be putting hectic music that will require you to move a lot.
So it is vital to remember the scene of the club you are going to because this will guide you as to the type of music you can expect to get.

Over drinking in a club can have a very negative outcome to your experience in a club.

This is the reason you need to learn to drink lightly in any club you go to.
Respect those around you
When you are dancing in any club scene just make sure you are mindful of people around you who are dancing too.
This can seem obvious but trust me when you are on cloud 9 and a bit tipsy you end up forgetting there are people to be respected.
As I mentioned a story about my friend who got stabbed this is why this point is vital.
If you are also dancing with a strange just always keep your wits about you because these dances there are many people who have bad intentions especially in clubs.
Dancing in a club is many points you have to be wary of such as the scene and music of that particular club.
Knowing these few basic points can go a long way in helping you enjoy your club experience and that is what we all want.
