Party Clubbing VS Dancing
Is Clubbing Dancing?
It has been recently debated on social networks as to IF Clubbing is considered dancing.
As a dancer, I have had too many friends who invite me to go clubbing with them. The times when I would decline, they would reply back by saying, "You're a dancer! You should love clubbing, all it is, is dancing!" For me, this statement seemed near impossible to comprehend. Yes, you dance at the club. However, clubbing is not dancing. Clubbing is a social excuse to drink, party, and get other people's attention.
Other Clubbing Views
Blogger, Besski Livius wrote an article about dancing and clubbing. in this article, she states that some girls may say they go clubbing because they "love to dance," however Besski disagrees. She states,
"I hear this reason a lot. “I go clubbing because I love to dance!” …Really? Is it clubbing the best environment to enjoy your passion for dancing? I personally don’t think so. Still, I don’t deny the fact that some girls go out just because they love to dance. But if you think about it, the kind of dancing that happens in a club has one end goal – getting attention."
Besski's statement is spot on and clearly shows one main reason why dancing and clubbing are entirely different and should never be in the same category
