Tiffany Smith: Welcome to Love U, I am host Tiffany Smith. Does he not realize that it takes two to tango? Is a touch down celebration his idea of busting a move? Let Love U teach you some fancy footwork with how to get your man on the dance floor. Tony Dovolani from Dancing with the Stars says, dancing can rejuvenate a relationship as it heightens communication skills and increases physical intimacy, but your man is shy about showing off his two left feet in front of a class, why not start by busting moves in your own living room with an instructional DVD or if you would prefer to walt this to your Wi-Fi, you can even download lessons from sites like ballroomdancechannel.com. Speaker: 5, 6, 7, 8. Female Speaker: Oh, I love this. Who got into this honey? That means so much to me. Speaker: I have step, show me moves to do and then I can do with it and then start one more, bring up my ankle, hop on one foot and cross my legs and then raise the roof and repeat. Female Speaker: I don't think we are talking about the same video. Speaker: Hey Macarena! Tiffany Smith: Bargaining is a great way to get a guy on the dance floor. So make a deal, trade off the dance-time you want for doing something he likes. Speaker: Okay, let's review the offer. In exchange for taking dance with you I get four hours of uninterrupted TV time with the guys, two one-hour full body massages -- Female Speaker: Above the waist only. Speaker: Fine, you will go with me to the Nascar race and you will have to remember your mom's every other year. Female Speaker: Deal. Tiffany Smith: If enrolling in a class or carving out time for private lessons has to go on the back burner for now, you can still take the basic principles of dance and apply them to your relationship. YourTango's Renée A. James has them boil down to five easy steps in her Dirty Dancing Guide to Romance. They are, hold her, let her go, dedicate yourself to getting it right together, lift her up and look her in the eye. Female Speaker: Fine I admit it; I haven't been refilling the Brida (ph). I am sorry. Speaker: I accept your apology, is there anything I can do to help you to remember to do it next thing? Female Speaker: You might just have to keep on reminding me, like I keep reminding you to take out the garbage. Speaker: I will try to remember to do that. We can get through these little problems together. You are so smart, capable and at the end of the day how you say, worth it. Tiffany Smith: Assure your man that nobody expects him to break into the moon walk or become the next Fred Astaire. He will be the lord of the dancing in your heart if he just gets out there and tries and again if he wants to rehearse the final number in the dirty dancing you would be alright with that too. Either way you are sure to have the time of your life. Thanks for watching Love U.
