Emergency guide: Moves for the stag night dance off
There’s a good chance that if you get together with the lads and there’s music and alcohol you’re going to end up having a dance off (whether you realise it or not!) We realise however that most of you have no idea how to really work the dance floor, and are desperately looking up Diversity on YouTube to learn some hip-hop before heading out. Rest assured that attempting to body pop in your skinny jeans with a mojito in your hand is not going to look cool and is going to make you the butt of jokes among the boys for many years to come.
Never fear gents, here at StagWeb we’ve put together this handy emergency guide for you, to get you through the stag do with style and guarantee a hilarious time.
- Do not sing along. Yes, maybe you know all the words to Eminem’s ‘Love the way you lie’ but the lads (and any surrounding ladies) don’t need to know that – you wouldn’t normally belt it out in public so why start on a stag do?
- If you’re stepping on toes, hitting people around the head and dripping sweat all over the place then chances are you aren’t actually dancing, you’re cavorting wildly and making a total fool of yourself.
- Remember that women don’t actually love being mauled, dancing with someone isn’t an opportunity to feel them up and the lads won’t be impressed when you get a slap across the face. If you like the look of someone then try something more groundbreaking like a “hello”.
- Don’t tell any kind of story through dance. You may think that the ‘mowing the lawn’ number is a groovy fail-safe and that people are getting their cameras out because they’re in awe of you, but in actual fact we’d bet that you’re being subject to uncensored ridicule – so stop tossing the pizza and turn off the engine.
- If you’ve had a drink then chances are your rhythm is not spot on which makes it even more vital that you avoid the classic lad mistakes of pointing, clapping, bouncing or clicking your fingers. It’s not ever cool and chances are if you have been looking through the Internet for dance moves you wont see them featuring.
There’s the advice then lads. Just relax and look confident, have a little smile while you dance but no nostril-flaring, crazy-eyed grins and if you do have a sense of rhythm then try a little nodding of the head. And if there truly is no hope in the groups dance moves then try a stag night activity that involves very few musical beats, like a medieval banquet, strip dinner or a casino. So have a great stag do with the boys and be sure to keep your lawnmower under control …
