I think 'he used to hate the way I danced in nightclubs' should be OK. Sounds more natural to my ear.

This English sentence suggest to me that what he hated was my habit of dancing in nightclubs. My style of dancing wouldn't be any different if I were not in a nightclub, so that wouldn't make sense. What exactly does the French mean?

Timor mortis conturbat me.

Preferable to my way of dancing: the way I danced. It should be accepted!
