I have been to countless work parties and community dances in Mongolia, and one thing has always kept me from being the most popular man in the room: I can't waltz. Mongolian dances alternate between random western dance songs and Russian style waltz numbers, invariably played with a programmed beat and a Casio keyboard. Although Mongolians enjoy the disco music- and dance to it in a big circle, so that you can see everyone as they rock out- they're more comfortable with the waltz. My fumbling attempts to spin the fair lady in my arms are so embarrassing, it only takes a number or two before the invitations stop coming. To avoid being left out of the fun, better to practice your steps and spins. It's harder than it looks!
