Any tips/advice for prom? (6)

I've been with my gf for a couple months now and in a few weeks we're going to prom but I'm really confused and worried about it. We're both the same age but I go to a different school. We'll be going to her school's prom but I don't have any friends that go there. A couple people know me still from when I used to attend there but that's about it. I'm a shy guy and the thing that bothers me the most is that there'll probably be dancing, I don't think I can deal with that well. Here are a couple of my questions:

Ask your gf to introduce you to her friends over the next weeks, so that by the prom's day you're familiar with them.

Use the time you have left to learn some basic dance steps. Ask your gf or someone who knows how to dance. Make it a fun time spent with your gf.

I don't think I'll need to be able to break dance, but I should at least not just stand there. ;o
I wanna make sure she has fun because she's the one who asked me to go with her.

Look, learn popping ie. arm wave, body wave, locking, krumpin and put it all together. You dont have to get on the ground. Although I could work you through that as well.

coin drop->six step->handglide->windmill->four step->adding steps->butt spin->pose

>>5 He's IN Fucking High School. The guy doesn't need to learn to bboy or breakdance, he simply needs to loosen up.

Therefore, OP, you should get some really dorky item to wear to make you feel uncomfortable. Get used to said item and learn to turn the attention that you'll get for it into a good thing. (Ie, no negative comments, use it as a conversation device, etc.) When you feel better about wearing something goofy/being goofy, you won't have to worry about how your "dancing" is. Just have fun. It'll fit with your image.
