No, actually, I really do want to learn to rave, I see lots of people go out and have lots of fun doing it and I'm usually left out because I don't know how, so quit being an asshole and if you don't want to try to help then don't respond.

Yo man, how old is you? What you need to do is drop some e, bump some beats and let your environement take over. Try to disconnecyt reality with your physical body, and let the motion and waves take over and you will have some kick ass glow formations.. Peace

SHAWN, WHAT CITY ARE YOU FROM AND WHERE DO YOU PARTY?? IF YOU WOULD LIKE I CAN TELL YOU WHERE TO GO AND PARTY WITH SOME PEOPLE THAT WILL NOT JUDGE YOU BECAUSE YOU ASKED A QUESTION. IF YOU REALLY WANT TO DANCE AND EXPRESS YOURSELF, GO AHEAD AND FIND THAT ONE PERSON THAT IMPRESSES YOU THE MOST WITH HIS OR HER DANCING STYLE, GIVE THEM THEIR PROPS(TELL THEM YOU LIKE THE WAY THEY DANCE) AND TRY TO INCORPORATE A FEW OF THEIR MOVES TO YOUR OWN STYLE. I GUARANTEE YOU THAT IF YOU TELL SOMEONE YU LIKE THE WAY THEY DANCE, THEY WILL NOT MIND IF YOU WATCH.
GOOD LUCK AND WELCOME!

There is no way to learn how to rave. You get out there and do what makes you feel good. Watch others and kinda copy them a little bit. Watch and try to do what they do and your body will do the rest. No to dancers are the same and your own style will grow from this. Practice during your free time some and just have fun. Dont worry about people thinking you look cool just do what feels good to you.

Yea... ravin is sum crazy shit . you gotta feel it . its like A spirituaL quest to find your own style . it comes from inide you. you need to practice though.The more time you spend practicing the more youR skills will develop and if your thinkinG to your self "I have no skills or I cant do it" thats bullshit anybody who have a passion for raving can "find the flow". what you really need to is check out some other peopLE who are ravin and learn from their tecnique. dont straight up jack THEIR SHIT but incorperate what you like about it in to your own style. try different shit like using strings, free handing ,ect . whatever WORKS FOR YOU . ill also try and get oyu some footage. RAVER X

yeaaa..ravin is hella nicee..its not knowing how to rave..but jus when u get on the floor..not having control of ur body but knowing what ur doing..trust me man..try it out a copule of times..if u can find the beat inside u..then ur body will do the rest..trust me..most people started like dat..there is no right way of raving..everyone has their own stuff..jus gotta get up there and let it out..trust me ull be surprised what u can do..rather then to go around and look for help nd shiet..u can also look at others and learn from them but dont try to jock everyone..cuz like i sed most everyone has their own stuff..u can do it man dont wery..roll..and go to a rave..and its on..lateee ;x

raves are tha shite....i have only really been into it the past couple of months but its not hard to do hand movements just hold the glow sticks move your hands into different patterns and if you know how to dance then you can do some pretty kick arse stuff..unlike those fags who just use their hands because they wanna be like everyone else and rave....you gotta feel it...just go and have fun and you wont suck...i'd respect it....oh and the negativity the first guy gave is totally uncalled for...what the hell is a poser ? someone who got into something because they thought it was cool when someone else done it? isnt that how EVERY single subculture caught on??? i think so...

Dont steal uda peoles moves just take what u like and develop it BUT make sure u juz dun steal it like sum uda diks out dare. Make it your own style and show yo passion! Peace out n live it up.

Aight here'z tha thing. I been ravin fo bout 3 yrz now. I waz first introduced to it by my friend an he showed me hiz style an all. When I started out I tried ta copy him an it juz wazn't workin. Ya gotta spend time an all, az every1 else said all u gotta do iz follow tha beat open up an feel it become part of it then you can't go wrong. When I'm out an I hear some hot beat I wanna rave. Tha way I c it when i'm out there I become part of tha muzik. Ravin iz juz how I express myself an when you get sum experience time u'll c it all too. Don worry bout it bro u'll learn, it'll take sum time but u'll do it. If you wanna talk bout it more im me on yahoo az Icewolf004 or on Aim az XxCrazERaverxX. ~Peace

yo, how can you hate on someone because they wanna know what its all about, i know i was doing the same thing when i first started, now im twirling styx constantly, just do what everyone else pretty much said, listen to the music you feel, and do what you think looks cool, i dont liquid to impress others i do it for myself, find the flow, and portray it, you sorta become the music, and when you do you know, its addicting so watch out.... define your own style and have fun, thats what its all about having fun...
PEACE LOVE AND ECSTASY!!!

Ok, first off, E won't make you dance better. Granted, it makes you feel good while your dancing, but you don't need it. Raving isn't about E, it's about the music. A rave is a concert for techno music. That's it. Go to a rave and just watch people dance. You will catch on to a few things after a while and then just practice them. And if you still can't get it, just ask someone at the rave to show a few quick starters. Mostly everyone I've met at a rave is really chill and unlike most the dicks here, none of them are going to blast you for asking. Once you get the basics down, then it's up to you from there. Try different moves, different turns, etc to create your own style. Practice, and in a few weeks you'll see improvement. It's just like learning anything. But don't get discouraged if you can't pull off the sick moves you see at the rave!!! It all comes with LOTS of practice. Peace and good luck.

Ok there is an easy way to do this, i Had the same problem. u dont need to slip an E. thats alittle Full On, just hav alittle jUiCE (alcohol) & that will loosen u up and u wont give a shit how ur dancin. I gurentee u will let loose and start to move. If ur against alcohol, remember there is no right way to rave, every1 raves differently. and its all in the beat.

hey, im not great at raving an dsome call me a pozer, hoever i have never been to a rave and I love goth clubs. I dress my own style. Keep in mind ravers are supposed to be happy and nice, childlike. Its a cool culture and if you wanna get into it you have to start somewhere. never call a budding raver a pozer cause at one time you too were a newbie to the raving world. Good luck!! ps- be who u wanna be and dress how you wanna, dont be a goth/raver/skater, be you, fit in to wherever u wanna :-) ;-) Love everyone!!!
allways look at both sides of things, someone may call u a bitch, but remember, that person has feelings too, they may have said it for a reason u dont kno. Put urself in the other persons posistion, someone cuts you off on the road, you say "asshole" maybe they were rushing to see their dying mother? be tolerant!!!

you people are the reason "raves" suck!!! go to a club its the same fucking thing as a rave now, im glad the scene is dead in chicago too many people know they are supposed to be UNDERGROUND you assholes
-- Anonymous, July 22, 2002
I don't know why there are people who feel threatened by more people wanting to do the things that they do. Raving won't be underground forever and eventually it will just become more and more popular. But at the same time you really do need to understand the music. It's not just about something to dance to, it's like something that flows and is the constant rhythm of your surroundings. Taking e helps this because you feel less in your body and more able to flow like the waves of sound that the music is making. It is about your own style and being able to flow with the music. Just go to raves and feel the sounds and your style will come to you. Peace, love, and good karma.

-- Anonymous, July 29, 2002
I really think that E steals the experience, especially since I truly believe the music what should get you going on the drive, not a drug. I'm not saying that people who can't rave without it are without feeling to the music, but for all those who can, I just think they have an advantage.

Well guys E isnt every thing when it comes to raving...well E is nothin when u wanna rave its all on the person. i think only posers are the ones who need the E when they rave cuz they need somethin to rave while the real ravers are the ones who can feel the natural beat and can move with the true motion although myself i have never done E. I am a string raver i swing fire and the glowing stuff. yeah u people kinda dissapoint me when it comes to this stuff u guys are only gonna fuck up ur heads

-- Anonymous, October 18, 2002
Listen. well, stay off the drugs, your right they sure won' t help you dance better. I can't believe these kids are starting do early, I just hope you guys do it right. As far as dancing, well everyone has their own ways of moving. Take a look around and see what other people are doing. Most often they dance a certain way because it feels good or goes with the flow of the music. I really don't see how you can classify " rave dancing" since there are many different types of dancing for different styles of music. Like you wouldn't trance at a Jungle party? would you? or if your listening to breaks, it's not the same a Trance. you need to be able to distinquish the different styles of music. Go out and buy music, and find out what you like best. I prefer Paul Oakenfold and Digweed. don't buy that compilation shit, get the stuff from the dj's albums. If your really a raver, you'll have the music in your car, and you can kinda dance and drive. that way if your uncomfortable, no one will see you.Also people dance differently geographically. Now if your talking about Liquid?, well you'll just have to practice many long hours untill you go with your flow. make up your own moves, it's about using your mind and being creative. don't just copy someone else, and don't do the same move over and over. I mean, if you saw a guy bobbin to the same step all night, you'd think he's off? Good luck. and please if you do drugs and care about yor mind, don't do them long term. you don't want to be a laboratory experiment. long term consequences of E, are dangerous. I have seizures now, and suffered servere depression. I've been off for 2 years now. I did way too much K too. I love it!, but it's BAD for you! so learn how to have fun clean. and if you think I'm wrong now, well you'll live and learn. Don't we all? plur.

A yo, 1zt of all, screw all tha peepz who think that raving has to start wen ur f***** born or sumthang. Juz cuz u wanna start raving doesnt mean that ur a poser. I've been raving 4 bout 3 yearz now and it started wit all mai friendz who went to ravez and everythang. I learned from a bezt friend, and after a while, it'z quite simple. Raving is not just about all the shit people list on a website. Its about going onto a dancefloor and inventing krazii moves to keep it new. U do anythang ur body tells you to. Wen I went to mai first rave, I didnt know much about anythang tha peepz were doing. But they all told me to move mai hands and body to the music and your not lookin stupid.

Raving is really some trippy shit..But theres different things you can do...therse something called a light show, and u use LED photon lights or Micro lights or glowsticks and wave it around creating figures, you can also attach them to strings and create a better and nicer light show..you can look here at www.glowstickswinging.com it has many tipz to learn how to do that...theres also something called liquid popping, and also a dance, where it seems only asians do and no one else does is called candy dance or candy walk..where u jump up and down and moving ur legs as if u were walking and u can add different steps to it of ur own...that can be mixed with raving wit glowsticks...so these are the things i know of raving, i mite have left some things out, if so let me knwo

I remember the first time i saw this E-head Amanda rave and I was like, "I don't care what I have to do to learn that, I'm doin it..." It was a personal mission, I started to do freestyle and showed her after about 2 months of un-lead-self-training to see if i knew what I was doing. She laughed in my face!!! Then I met this GREAT girl Lexi that taught me strings, and that it's all about experiment and a little trusted feedback from your peeps who won't lie to you. A very good style to look at is poi, it taught me more than anything else. http://www.blanketfort.com/juggling/chain.html. For all you little ravers talking shit to a F*cking begginer; none of us were born with glowsticks in our hands and we ALL started from somewhere... If it makes you feel any better Shawn, i bet none of these kids can do strings with the glowsticks aflame, e-mail me for my picks if you guys doubt me. Good luck to all......... retinalust

Hmm...I dont know how I got here, but I read all the answers. I was actually looking for an anime, but learning how to rave is something I wanted to do. There are quite a lot of hater's remarks in this, but there also lots of good ones. Well I how to rave, but I'll just compile all the answers into this one. Basicall, you cannot actually learn how to rave, you just need expirence. The same goes for everything else. To start off, you might want to go look at some friends and see how they do it. You dont want to 'steal' their moves, you just want to start off with it. You can modify it to make it easier for yourself or something. And when you are out on the floor, you have to feel the music, not the drugs. Drugs wont make you a better dancer, it will only make you a phucking retard. I agree with the peoples who say that learning is not posing. Weren't you learinig once too? Well, some of the tips that I got from reading this is, let your body do what it wants. Let it flow with the music. You are not supposed to do what you think is cool, just do what you feel is right for you. After reading all these replies, I feel like I should get out and start doing it. But, I'll do that as soon as I can drive, in two years. In the mean time, I'll try to practice at home, build up on my skills. And when I am finally able to drive, I'll see how I do with real peoples, real lighting, and real music. Hmm..I'm not a raver so I cant say much, but I am an anime and game fan. I have also created my site. I started on December 29, 2002. Still lots of work to be done. But if you want to see what I got so far..visit here: http://aziananimefan.bravepages.com Happy New Year everyone. Best wishes for you in your new passion. --D 1 N Only ;)

bah. u people are the poser bitches who flame people who want to enter the "oh-so" exclusive rave scene... if you had even tapped into the real extent of raving in your entire life then ud know that accusing and bringing down every second person with a question about raving isnt exactly in the spirit of raving etc.
get off your fucking high-horse bitch. stop thinking because u've bought a couple glowsticks that you're a diehard raver. u sound more like a candy raver with all the gear and no idea to me so go back to ur photon lights and ur shiny videoclips
raving is something u need to experience for yourself~ what alot of people out there have said, its just about letting the music take u over and really getting "loved-up" u might say. and dont let anyone tell u e's are a must because they arent. but that doesnt mean that they arent fun =pp
get into the music then go from there... the more u try to fit in the more u wont.. just do ur own thing and let the music and ur rhythm do the rest =p

Look, I cant really rave either.... simply because my left arm and hand never wants to work with my right one and it looks all kinky but all you have to do is figure out what your comfortable doing and then just keep doing it over and over again untill you get good. whats really kewl is get in the shower turn on a strobe blast some dance music and try to liquid (with just your arms of course, we dont want you slipping and breaking your neck) not only will it look cooler just cause you got the strobe and the single drops of water but it will make you better (that is if you take lots of showers, like me :p )

I was born a Pisces and I believe that has a lot to do with me all of a sudden wanting to be a candy raver. I have always been a fan of Marley, pot, the cause that hippies tried to make everyone see, and I've been into techno since Dance Dance Revolution came out in arcades around 1999 for me..I don't care what anyone says, I love the crazy pants, and colorful styles. Fuck it if I wear rainbow colors and people think I'm gay. I've been depressed and on meds for a while and it's hard for me to express happiness as an emotion, but I try so hard, and I never judge anyone, nor can I ever really hate someone. I guess even though I'm not good with glowsticks, I'm still a raver. From New Jersey. Represent :D plur! Someone email me some NJ raves cuz this state fuckin sucks, maybe some underground NY raves...SOMETHING....I'm sick of Cali getting EVERYTHING.

If u wanna have a crack at raving for the first time, i recommend you do it with the lights off and the music goin. Then you wont feel like a fool even there's no one looking at u (including ur self ;p ).

Raving is a Art form. Think of the glowsticks as a extension of ur body. Like in and form of regular dance you would use ur body to express yourself. Well with raving not only can u use ur body but now u also have glowsticks to use. Dont limit the possibilities to what u think u can do if you have a good idea for what you think a glowstick can do figure out a way to do it. there is always a way. Now for the beginners. I think a good idea for beginners to follow is always have one glowstick follow the other. That will get you ust to the flow that everyone keeps talking about. Once you feel the flow. You dont need anymore help from anyone trust me ur head will be filled with so many ideas of what u can do with glowsticks it might just explode. AND TO ALL THE REAL RAVERS OUT THERE. Who know about the flow all i have to say is automatic. Going automatic where your not thinking ur just raving with all ur heart and soul. that is when you will feel the flow the most. AUTOMATIC! GOD DAMMIT AUTOMATIC!

one of the fist steps to learning to rave is for you to first DISCOVER YOUR SELF i cant say there is anything more importaint then finding your true self. if you can find your true self then you can feal the importiance of music. i myself meditate and have found my true self and im loving every moment of life. and what im loving even more is music. and to show my love for music i put it in a physical form by raveing. learning to rave isnt about moves its about like said berore AUTOMATIC i can see that some of the people who have posted there thoughts are showing signs of self awareness. the sad part for me is that i dont think im the olny one at my school that has found there inner-self. i look so far out of my physical form i dont even see my self as a male anymore though many of my thoughts are contaminated due to my gender. but these perverted thoughts are natures way of telling me its time to reproduce. you cant resist nature, but accept it and try to see past your physical body.
though this may be a waste of my time i hope some of you will be inspired by this TRUE fact. that though i go though pain i still love life and can put faith that DEATH WILL ALWAYS COME and no one needs to rush it because sucicde is for quitters

I hope that some ppl from foreign countries join, cuz i want to see the diffrent styles from diffrent countries..

There is no way to learn how to rave. I mean there are videos to learn the basics, but thats about it. You just basically learn yourself. Just go get some glowsticks and pratice. Don't worry what people think about you.

hey dude don't sweat all the "poser" stuff like some of the others said. We all started out somwhere.I'm Native American (full-blooded) and we always have people that say stuff like my great 'grand-mother was a cherokee princess' and it kinda bugs, but when I was younger we hated on people like that and called them "wanna-be's", but my dad set me straight and said,"Yeah they are wanna-be's, they wanna- be connected..." That goes for the electronic dance community too. Just be you and feel the music in your own way. We should all be together on this especially with congress trying to pass the R.A.V.E. act.Let's keep the music alive.Now go out there and have fun! Peace, Love, Unity,and Respect. That's all you really need to know.Stay up Playa!
"Remember when sex was safe and skydiving was dangerous? Ravers don't die, THEY MULTIPLY!!!!"

I'd like to say two things, first, you CAN learn to rave, you dont have to go and just listen to music in hopes that it will help and two, ecstasy can help you rave. some people who disagree will be like "bullshit" because they've never popped E. well i just popped E a few weeks ago and raved and i had the most fun i've had in quite a while. I LEARNED to rave from a friend who on a glowstick team, and i have video of moves, so scrath out your "you cant LEARN to rave" because you can. people say popping ecstasy wont help but in a sense it does, it hightens your senses and lets you flow. when i popped E i couldnt stop looking around, my legs twiched and my mouth was really chewy, but one thing the E did for me was it allowed me to flow. the lights and the glowsticks put me in another world. so w/e, think what you want but all i can say is, you CAN learn to rave and ecstasy CAN help you rave, but you dont have to take it in order to rave. so to whomever disagree's with me, stick to what you say but we'll see who's the better raver. you go stick to your figure 8 and your liquid and then when you can 5 beat reverse weave, come talk to me okay =). bye. hope i helped.

Hey man, if you just want to go to a rave and bug out go ahead, but if you're interested in more than raving, if you're actually interested in an art called glowsticking, there are some things other can teach you to enhance your style. Just jacking other people's moves won't work either, but after you understand the basics of the style, and learn/create/realise some techniques you'll be good. We have an entire glowsticking Community at glowsticking.com, and it's awesome, i love it to death. P.L.U.R.

ey yo, bump all that shyt that hater keeps sprayin. alls ya gots to do is take it easy. most ravers wanna show off and go all fast but it looks wak cuz its too fast it doesnt even go wit da beat or da flow.when i first started i kept bustin my knuccles but i took it steady and i naild some cosmic(kool) trix. i havent even been raving a year yet and already i can go out and show my skillz. and dont worry bout wut haters say. ravin aint for show. its a part of life if u realy want it. u dont have to drop E to be a raver. thats just a steriotype. any "raver" that says different isnt a raver at all. just a poser in a ravers shell. keep it real broseph and u'll be as cosmic as da rest.L8R

look, i live in a shitty little town called fort myers florida, i learned to *alrightly* rave about 3 years agoe and i'm still learning, my boyfriend is suppost to be the best in the county and hand.. well.. he's suppost to be teaching me and he hasn't done shit for helping me... i've been reading these comments and all anyone's been saying is go with the flow, well my friend taught me to rave and she wasn't very good.. so she messed me up for life.. now i can't learn anything new so i want to start over from the basix, can anyone tell me where to go.. btw.. i hang out at a rave place called the palace and have never done E but from what i've seen it doesn't make you rave better, it just makes you pass out and get dehydraited. *but i've never done it so* well if anyone can give me any help it'll be appreciated.. ty -katt-
