TYPES OF DANCERS AT A WEDDING 📂☀️
Inspired by the wedding I went to last month, but based on all of my friends' weddings over the last 15 years.
- •Shy dancersNeed to dance with a group, refuse to enter the inevitable "show-off" circle. Skitter off the dance floor if the crowd gets sparse.
- •Grandma dancersShuffle with tiny steps along to the music. Sometimes off beat.
- •Overly sexy dancersDancing like full nudity is only moments away, never mind the groom's grandma standing right there. The category includes people who grope each other during the slow dances.
- •Fair weather dancersPop on and off the dance floor on a song-by-song basis. Will definitely make an appearance for "Don't Stop Believin'."
- •BridesmaidsWill dance for the entire night, even through the crappy songs, out of a sense of duty to the bride.
- •Need-to-be-super-drunk dancersDon't usually start dancing until after dinner has been served, they are both uninhibited and slightly clumsy. Most likely to crash into other guests or drop a full glass on the dance floor.
- •Fancy dancersMy very favorites. Usually someone's aunt and uncle, this couple has clearly had formal dance training, but their repertoire is full of old-timey dance moves that contrast amusingly with the DJ's pop music selections.
- •Non-dancersOften just sit there staring at the dance floor. Get up! Have fun! You're making me feel awkward when you stare like that!
