I Don't Dance is a song sung by Ryan and Chad on the baseball diamond. Ryan challenges Chad to a baseball game, and it turns into a big dance routine. The song has a symbolic meaning where Ryan (a thicc gay boi) is trying to convince Chad (a boi who thinks he is straight) that he is gay for him. With Chad singing stuff like "I'll show you how I swing", Ryan has definitely succeeded in his endeavor to get with every kid on campus. By the end, Ryan and Chad get it on in the locker room and switch clothes after the exchange. This is when Ryan truly realizes how much he loves Chad. You can them sitting very close together in the next scene at the picnic table, totally in love.

Music Video

The video has Ryan and Chad playing a baseball game against each other. There is a huge dance number with bats and mitts dance off. The video also features real-life baseball players singing the lyrics to the song.  Ryan hits four long homeruns in the game.
