Robert Pattinson and
Kristen Stewart

The 'Twilight Saga' beauty has finally persuaded her boyfriend to practise jigs such as the Waltz, Paso Doble and the Cha Cha with her, and while he has been "having a lot of fun" learning new skills on the dance floor, he is "terrible" at it.

A pal of Kristen's told the Daily Star newspaper: "Rob is the first to admit he's a terrible dancer. But Kristen has been trying for ages to persuade him to have lessons with her and he's finally caved in.

"The pair have already had a couple of lessons with a private instructor and have been practising their moves at Kristen's mum's house in Malibu, California, where they are currently staying.

"They're having a lot of fun so far."

The couple - who briefly split last year after Kristen admitted she had cheated on Robert with her 'Snow White and the Huntsman' director Rupert Sanders - have previously shown some moves on the dance floor while on dates together.

Last year, the pair enjoyed a night out at a Johnny Flynn concert in Los Angeles, where they indulged in some public displays of affection and danced the night away.

A source said at the time: "They were holding hands, they kissed, they rested on each other and there was light dancing too."

In 2010, Robert and Kristen performed a short dance for their fans on their hotel balcony in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, where they were filming honeymoon scenes for 2011 fantasy movie 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1'.
