Well, thank you for playing. Formal dances just really aren't your thing. You had trouble with most, if not all, of the dances on this quiz. It seems that you really don't know your left foot from your right foot. Maybe it would be better to take a few dance classes before you embarrass yourself when trying to show off your moves at the next party. Or stick to just nodding your head along with the beat.

You probably are comfortable on the dance floor if the moves are simple and familiar to you. Sure, you wont be winning any contests, but you wont embarrass yourself when you are asked to dance at a wedding.
