    show skill/skills on the dancefloor

    Dear Friends,

    If you are a good dancer, do you show skill or skills on the dancefloor?


    He shows skill/skills on the dancefloor.


    Thanks a lot.

    Wink Re: show skill/skills on the dancefloor

    The word skills is used to express either general or particular matters: Some examples are:

    She's got drawing skills
    I don`t think I`ve got dancing skills

    Therefore your sentence should say "She shows skills on the dancefloor.

    But equally she can show dancing skill. It is not necessary to pluralize skill.
