how do i have fun at a homecoming without dancing?

i’m extremely self-conscious and i can’t dance at all. there’s a homecoming coming up real soon and i want to know if there’s a good way to have fun without dancing.

Answer #1

you find a guy that you like that doesnt wanna dance either. go to the homecoming football game or whatever but instead of going to the dance, go out on a date and paint the town red. :P

Answer #2

ehh… but i’m only 13, and live in a small country town with nothing to do anyway.

Answer #3

well i guess it comes down to finding fun people to go with. no matter what the occaision if you find good people to go with it will always be fun. :P

Answer #4

I used to be that way in grade school til my cousin told me one thing…if I wanted to have some what of a life I had to learn to stop being so self -conscious….she hit the stereo…and said ok…now dance…and I started turning all sorts of shades of red…and said hellz no. My cousin asked me why not…when I explained that I didnt want to look like a fool then she laughed & said, do you think that every cool kid in school knows how to dance perfectly?! I said I didnt know but thought so…ans she said hellz no!
We both had a good laugh & she turned the music back on and said come on…just loosen up…feel the music…and allow your feet to take over! I tried at first, felt weird doing it in front of her…but after we were both dancing she said now how do you feel…I smiled & said thanks. Sometimes we just need a little encouragement…no, not everyone can dance…but isnt it fun when you can & are not afraid to do it in public!?

I am glad I listened to her…and I hope you will to! Go, have fun, dance…pay no mind to others that might laugh or criticize…they cant dance 100% either…just have a great time 7 let us know how it went! :)

Good Luck.

Answer #8

I wish I could find the answer to this myself, as a male.

/shrug, I didnt think there WAS girls who didnt like dancing or dancing at homecoming….

Answer #9

ha. well i guess now you know. xD

Answer #10

find a guy and go makeout somewhear the whole time or talk to anyone who isnt dancing or just keep eating

Answer #11

sweetie, you shouldnt have to make yourself do anything…find out why you resent it because everyone can dance..some of us just cant because we resent doing it…maybe it is the music, or just the style of dancing…perhaps just something you never applied yourself to do…what ever the case is, I am sure if you allowed yourself to move to the the rhythm, that perhaps you just might find that you may even like it… if you fail at first, dont quit…try try again…and then you can show off your cool dance moves to your friends that left you there to dance…make them feel like you did… never get mad…get even! :P just have fun with it…and let the music lead you!

Answer #12

i don’t think i’ll make out with anyone…..lmao xD

Answer #13

talk to friends! :)))))))))))

Answer #14

yeah lol but they all dance & so thats kinda a problem :/

Answer #15

what about going around taking pictures or videotaping your friends

Answer #16

oh. well, hmmm… i know that i thought that i was a horrible dancer and i was also very self-concious but if you just follow what everyone else does than nobody notices and then you also learn to dance! so now im a pretty good dancer. i think that you should go and take the experience to learn how to dance. i think that you will have a lot of fun regardless of you thinking that youre not a good dancer. have you been asked by anyone?

Answer #17
