Survey: A third of men never dance

As the weather cools and leaves clutter the sidewalks, the post-Thanksgiving reality of Christmas parties looms, and with it the potential for eggnog-fueled dancing. While some relish the opportunity to dance, many, especially men, are lukewarm participants at best.

Research from YouGov shows that men are noticeably more reluctant to get on the dance floor than women. Most women either say that they get the dancing started (11% to 8%) or that they happily dance once others are (41% to 24%). 63% of men, however, either need to be dragged onto the dance floor (29%) or flat out refuse to dance (34%).
