BOSTON (AP) — Don’t look for Rob Gronkowski to spike his slippers in the end zone anytime soon.

The New England Patriots’ star tight end had a dance lesson with Nathalia Arja, a soloist from the Miami City Ballet — and his bulk and gridiron moves didn’t exactly make him a natural.

A video of the lesson from men’s magazine GQ is getting lots of clicks and laughs on social media.

It shows Gronkowski awkwardly attempting a plié, an arabesque and other classical ballet moves.

At the end of the lesson, he asks Arja how he did. Her diplomatic response: “Well, I think you did a lot better than how we started today.”
