    Faux Pas or Foxes Pass

    Thought this might be fun. I am thinking in particular of dance related embarrassing moments, ****-ups, humourous mistakes and so on. Of course in my case these are numerous, but three in particular stand out.

    1. Being asked to demonstrate a drop and dropping her

    2. Being asked to dance someone by her boyfriend and dancing with the wrong girl.

    3. Being asked for a dance by an extremely attractive lady (who had been advised to dance with me), and telling her I wanted to drink me beer and finish my fag. That was in 1995 and it still haunts me today.

  2. 2 'Thanks':

    Re: Faux Pas or Foxes Pass

    I accidentally undid someone's bra. during a drop.

    Oh, and , erm.... I broke a partner's strap which meant her top almost came off...

    And worst... Was doing the ballroom drop step over thingy... and my partner was in the big flary trousers... I accidentally stood on her flares, she came back up after the dip, her trousers did not.... Black trousers, white undies, red faces.....

    hmmm..... bit of a pattern forming here...

    Re: Faux Pas or Foxes Pass

    Thought it would be cool to show off to a beginner. While being taught a pretzel I decided to do a dummy pretzel (during the practise the part to the music bit), tripped over her feet, twisted my knee, and fell flat on my arse taking out two other couples, in front of the class.
    Deserved it though I guess.

    There's probably a moral in there somewhere

    Re: Faux Pas or Foxes Pass

    I was doing a particularly wicked double spin, whizzed a bit close to my partner and whipped out one of his contact lenses with my pony tail!

    Several years later, and having still not learned my lesson that multiple spinning has its pitfalls (literally...) I threw myself into what would have been an impressive quadruple spin, caught my toe on the ridge where the carpet joins the dance floor on spin number three and lurched nose first onto the back of a chair. I broke my nose... Even worse (if that's possible) it was my first week in a new job so I was meeting all my new colleagues with two black eyes. Great first impression.

    Re: Faux Pas or Foxes Pass

    At one class where I was the Taxi, the men were moving and at one point myself and a mate found that we were spare and decided to pratice on each other. The teacher Cliff (of Bromley now I believe), saw us and said "we're not having any of that down there, please come up on the stage and show everyone."

    Not really a Faux Pas but highly embarrassing, especially as it was in a church, and a lot of the punters were from the congregation.

    We did, however, manage to finish with a half tumble (our piece de resistance), which even though I say so myself is impressive.

    Re: Faux Pas or Foxes Pass

    honestly, this thread has made me giggle.

    Great input.

    Embarassing moments for me;

    Trying to sneak out a love puff quietly and discreetly in the open air only to find that the tummy ache i thought i had followed through. All of the dancers cooling off outside went a dark shade of Green and Scarface proceeded to tell everybody i had dropped my guts.

    Thinking a dancer had a wapping great big hard on whilst dancing with me at a fancy dress dance and telling my sister how disgusting it was only to find and be told by her that it was a toilet roll down his trousers. (he was dressed as superman)

    Having a back drop done on me, loosing my footing and creating a whole new move with Agent secreto, (similar to kama sutra ideas) he didn't drop me thank goodness, but i still managed to go all the shades of red (unusal for me) Pete was also walking funny for the rest of the weekend.

    Getting pissed on a weekender...generally always ends up embrassing.

    Re: Faux Pas or Foxes Pass

    I used to work as a temp for Wandsworth Council in the Electoral Registration Office. At one Christmas Party I was trying to show some of my colleagues Ceroc. At some point a lady, I guess, mid to late 40's asked me "was that Ceroc." Well, that was it. We danced several times during the night, often on an empty floor with everyone surrounding us and they were dead impressed...... Until....

    The last song was "Summer Nights" and I had in my mind to finish with a very low seducer on the last note. I decided to hold the pose for a few seconds, then felt my leg slipping and we ended up in a heap. Much to the amusement of our audience. I apologised whole heartedly and she seemed cool about it and told me not to worry.

    My boss came to me and said "you know you were looking for a full time position?" Well, that was the Head of Personnel for the whole Council.

    OOPS!!!!!

    This probably counts as a c**k up, not by me, but by the Ceroc Management.

    I think it was 1998 or '99 summer and it was supposed to be a busk to introduce the people of Chiswick to their new venue. The occasion was Chiswick Open Day in front of thousands of people. At least 20 Taxis had agreed to busk along with Erick as DJ and thousands of leaflets to be handed out.

    For some reason the powers that be failed to take into account the fact it was a bank holiday weekend, the Reading Rock Festival and the Notting Hill Carnival.

    As it happened Erick arrived with a girl that worked in the Ceroc Office, with the leaflets but no music. One venue manager and two male Taxis, myself and one other. 5 people, 3 non Cerocers and no music.

    Luckily there was a Swing Band playing. So myself and the other Taxi took turns to dance with the lady from the office who had only ever danced Merengue but could at least follow a bit. We handed out a few leaflets, enjoyed some of the money that the office had provided for 20+ peoples food and had a convivial afternoon.

    The best bit was that no-one from head office could really complain. and the Chiswick venue managed to get up and running with Viktor teaching
