NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

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 plie, 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.''
