There's a thousand pretty women waitin' out there
And they're all livin' devil may care.'

Guys and girls should both put thought and time into what they are going to wear. Guys, you probably don't have a vast choice. Girls - think about it all week. Keep looking in your wardrobe. Guys - a T shirt is not a good choice because that's what you'll be wearing tomorrow. It always looks bogun. A casual shirt looks like you care. Only wear a T-shirt if you are a body builder. It works for them.
It sounds geeky, but if you can get away with a singlet under your shirt, it will soak up sweat and you'll look fresher. If you wear your shirt very unbuttoned, wax your chest. If your jeans are low cut, wax your groin. Jeans are timeless, but keep your shoes up to date. Platforms are so not in. Put something in your hair to give it style and volume so you don't end with a sweaty flat top.
Girls- it's short, flimsy dresses and they are not just black anymore. A simple tip to avoid pulling at your straps all night is to go for a strapless number that stays up. Stockings drive a man wild. Girls just don't wear them but I'm a graduate of some very sexy scenes. I know. As for shoes, beauty can be painful but it shouldn't kill and if you can't dance in them you will look stupid. I can work stilettos, but I prefer boots.
Babes on the dance floor can get away with some simple but sexy moves. Watch a stripper. She's in control. If the space is tight, stand in one place and writhe with your arms up. Just keep moving and keep it sexy and you're on track.
Guys - watch videos because this is your chance to be a peacock and score a chick. Mix up moves to show some imagination. Keep your footwork bouncy but keep it in time. Pick up the beat with your hands. If you have spotted potential prey, make sure she is single. Guys can be possessive. Make your way to her by dancing through the crowd. Make eye contact. See if there is any interest or chemistry. If there is, take it from there all the way back home to your place. If there is not- accept rejection and dance away with dignity.
The basics for success are to look good, move well and above all- have a really good time not get drunk and vomit. If I wind up broke I'll always remember that I had a swinging good time.'
