Picture this: You’re at a wedding, and your favorite song comes on. It’s the newest song by your favorite artist, and all the radio stations are overplaying it like crazy. Your plus one turns to you and says, “Oh! I love this song! Let’s dance!” At this point, one of the following occurs: Either you head out to the dance floor with your date and awkwardly jump and shimmy to the music probably scaring them in the process, or you suddenly panic, say no, and stand around by the open bar.
Fortunately, there is a third scenario that is far better than the previous options. Wouldn’t it be great to hop on that dance floor and actually know how to dance it out to that awesome song? The Duet team is here to help you get on your feet and dance the night away without making a fool of yourself or sitting it out instead.
