Are you a good dancer?

Several people discuss if they are good dancers and how they feel about getting on the dance floor.

Edwin, Australia
speakerAm I a good dance? No, I am a terrible dancer. If you talk about break-dancing, I would actually break something, if I went to a club, I'd stay at the bar more. Although, friends have tried to teach me a bit of moves, or some moves, I am still just very terrible at it.

Jess, United Kingdom
speakerYes, I am a good dancer. I love dancing. I love music. That's a big stress release for me, to go out and dance the night away, and I love getting dressed up in dancing clothes and high heels and sparkles and glitter.

David, Kenya
speakerAm I a good dancer? Yeah, I think I am, depending on the person I am dancing with, yeah, I think I'm a good dancer and I love dancing. I've loved dancing since I was a kid, and I still do. I don't think I am going to stop anytime soon.

Chrystal, United States
speakerI consider myself as an Okay dancer, I guess. I've been working out these days and I think my favorite way to work out is to close all the curtains and just blast out my favorite songs and just dance in my room, but I won't let anybody see it except for my cat.

George, United States
speakerA good dancer? Well, that depends. Are you talking about real dancing or Dance Dance Revolution the video game, because I am a monster at Dance Dance Revolution. Real dancing not so much though.

Hana, Australia
speakerI'm not a very good dancer. I'm very uncordinated, so whenever I try to dance, I know what I want to do in my mind, but as soon as I try and do it with my hands, it just looks completely different.
