I really enjoy house music. I would love to go to a live venue but I am definitely not a dancer. I don't want to see out of place.or even downright awkward for not dancing. Do others who attend not dance and just kinda sit in the back and mingle while enjoying the music?
If you're talking about stuff like Tiesto, Gareth Emery, Above&Beyond, Chicane, Gabriel and Dresden, etc., then most people there are very inclusive. I've never felt out of place at a show like that, despite not dancing much and being a weirdo in general.
I listen to alot of no artificial colours , some disclosure, Duke Dumont ..tons of MK remixes..I wouldent know where they fall on the house spectrum. Im big in alot of the old school stuff as well as underground
dude its one of the most welcoming enviroments out there. just dance however u feel like, no one gives a shit and u end up meeting really cool people
but dont lean on a wall and stare, fucking dance no matter how silly u look
House music 'dancing' consists largely of jumping up and down in a shoulder-to-shoulder crowd of other people jumping up and down. Anyone can do it, and nobody pays any attention to you.
As somebody who actually dances, maybe 0.5% of people at these kind of venues do anything truly rhythmic. If you can bob your head to the beat you are ahead of the game.
Ps House dance is real and super dope if you get into it https://youtu.be/jr11jKyiqQg
I do too anon, none of my friends like tech-house music. Always when I go out, I get drunk and end up leaving my friends for a house/tech club where I just dance alone.
People always start talking to me and give me drinks and shit, and I always talk to random people there. The atmosphere is such that it is not weird to show up alone (if its later). You just make it awkward yourself. Enjoy yourself and you will not be looked weird upon.
a TON of people go to music venues and don't dance, most don't even move they just sort of bob their head. Some people who dance might complain about the crowd but they don't single anyone out for not dancing, I would say at even the most poppin club only like 70% of the crowd is groovin'
Also if the place is really packed and crazy the energy will probably make you want to dance anyway

Never been yo a house rave specifically but plenty of hardvore and dnb raves. No one gives a fuck what you do or how well you dance. Just feel the music and do what makes you happy. Ecstacy help too.
