Interesting - in Yiddish the word for "dance" is טאַנץ/tants!

"From Middle High German tanzen, ultimately from Old French dancer" according to https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/%D7%98%D7%90%D6%B7%D7%A0%D7%A6%D7%9F#Yiddish :)

What's wrong with "We seldom dance together."?

Sorry, that was "We seldom dancing together.".

"We seldom dance together" would be correct English, and at least in my dictionary, "seldom" is also given as a translation for "редко". A native speaker might know better whether it should be reported. You could do so anyway though.

Using the progressive "dancing" here doesn't work, as that suggests a fixed time period, while "seldom" and "rarely" refer to the lack of multiple instances.

What's wrong with "We rarely dance with each other."?

"We rarely dance with each other" = "мы редко танцуем друг с другом".

People can dance together, but not with each other, for example a collective dance

Does anyone else have difficulty telling the difference hearing between мы and мой?
