I think I discovered my preferred style of dance: reggae! Not a huge huge reggae fan but perhaps the dance could be transposed to other genres of music. I went to a reggae show and it seemed to be a lot of arms akimbo, a shuffling sort of hopping and head bopping. Don't forget the head bopping.
In other words, spastic flailing. At least that's how the white teenage boys at the show were dancing. It's the dance for us rhythmically challenged folks. Too much elbow action though. I'm almost got elbowed in the face a couple times by an overzealous dancer. Next time, I'm wearing a hockey helmet.
