Summary: Harry Potter always had two left feet and when the Conference of Ministries is held at Hogwarts, he finds himself unable to escape the dancing. To his horror, the only one who can teach him is Draco Malfoy, the resident Potions Master.
Warnings: Humour; snark; a tiny bit of angst; scheming Headmistresses; (hopefully not too irritating) OCs; fake accents of all kinds; and what the cat is doing there I have yet to figure out.

Author's notes: Regarding the dance: It's completely made up, as you might have figured out after reading the story. I wanted to give it some sort of cultural background but I don't know how well I succeeded. Also, I feel that this could have been worked out a bit better than it was, but when I finally had settled upon a plot that would hold beyond 'ohh, shiny!', I had only a couple of weeks to finish it (excuses, I know, I know) and it turned out that I had enough to wrestle this thing into something that even resembled order.
Beta(s): my wife, cueeties_janara, who really hates this pairing but did it (and put up with all my weird experiments including my punctuation and hyphens and semi-colons and what have you) because she loves me. All remaining mistakes are mine.
