    Dance class like Peep Show's "Rainbow Rhythms"

    Hi here's a clip from a comedy show called "Peep Show"
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=20UXFd8Rz-M

    I've been going to a dance class a bit like it.... in the class the leader shows us two or so moves per song and she improvises. The group also improvises. The whole time we're walking or jumping around forward, side-to-side, backwards, and turning on the spot. We do old fashioned dances, house music, tribal music, ambient music and at the end we lie on the ground and meditate to the leader's instructions.

    It is good for me because I find it hard to remember the moves in other dance classes. It is also interesting to be moving all around the room. And I like how some people are really good at their dance moves. I'm pretty stiff.

    What other dance classes have you tried? I'm taking a ballroom class at my university right now and I am just fucking terrible at it. I'm trying to keep a good attitude about it but it's ridiculous how everybody else seems to be able to watch the instructor do something a few times and just get it and I keep getting confused over and over again. We're doing swing right now and I'm constantly losing the beat and ending up twirling girls around in weird ways... some of them get visibly annoyed, others think it's cute I guess, but it's embarrassing.

    I did some kind of ballroom dancing. It is similar to some martial arts where you have to remember a sequence of moves.

    Who do you mean? Mark doesn't really dance in the clip. I guess he dances in a very annoyed way. I've never danced like that.

    When Mark "opens the box" I always lose it.

    Wow you're a bigger Peep Show fan than me! I didn't realize that it had those bits cut out on my linked video. Anyway I don't quite reach his level of crazy dancing.
