You Make Me Feel Like Gancing
A recent issue of Stuff Magazine described the latest dance craze hitting the clubs: Gancing. That's short for guy-on-guy dancing. Not gay dancing, mind you. This is heterosexual (or metrosexual) guy-on-guy dancing. The theory is that this is actually a great strategy for picking up women, since the women are turned on by the sensitivity of the dancing men. There are various 'gances,' such as the Shark, in which one guy pretends he's a shark and chases another guy around the dance floor. News of this club sensation received quite a lot of media attention after Stuff broke the story. Jay Leno, for one, talked about it on his show. Ryan Seacrest even admitted that he had done some gancing himself. Unfortunately for the media, gancing is a hoax. It was made up by Stuff features editor Bill Schulze as an early April Fool's Day joke.
