    Infinitive phrase as adjective?

    Infinitive phrase as an adjective?
    so the first question indicates to

    write a sentence using the infinitive phrase as noun that I came up with, which was "to dance like no one is watching"

    The example they put was "To be a pirate requires requires courage, ruthlessness, and a bad haircut."

    the sentence I came up with was "To dance like no one is watching means to loosen up and enjoy yourself while forgetting the world around you."

    Is that correct?

    The next question says to :

    write a sentence using the same infinitive phrase I came up with (to dance like no one is watching) but as an adjective. That threw me off and confused me a bit more. I'd really appreciate your help and explanation For this part.

    When will you submit your homework to your teacher?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    In that case, we wish you good luck. We don't help with homework or assignments on this forum. Your teacher is not interested in what we know. He/She is interested in what you know. You must do all homework on your own.

    When you get it back from your teacher, you can come back to us for help if your teacher makes any comments or corrections that you don't understand.
