Excuses I have heard

Within Modern Jive

  • No
  • No thank you
  • I've just changed my shoes
  • We're just going now
  • I promised the next dance to someone else
  • I have to go to the Lavatory
  • (No answer - completely ignored)
  • (A scowl)
  • (A turn away)
  • (No answer, with flared nostrils)
  • (No answer, with looks down their nose)
  • "Can't you see I'm resting?" (Gay chap's rude comment classic)

- Help me out here folks, have I forgotten any?

Within Tango

No refusals (so far!)

- You see, it didn't just happen to you - we all have had most of "the experience"...
