: : What does 'twinkle toes' mean? Can I call someone 'twinkle toes' without offending them?

: My guess: I think it means someone light on his/her feet. And referring to a man as "twinkle toes" might be an insulting term for homosexual. "Light in the loafers." But if it's, for example, a little girl in a tutu, it would be a good thing.

"Light on your feet" means you are a good dancer. If you equate dancing well with effeteness, then that's your problem.
