The precise address is preceded by at: he lives at 128 Oxford Street. On may occasionally be found to say where a building is located: Ikea have a big new store on Oxford Street.

Translations of "Dancing"

Q: How do you say this in English (US)? “Digging the dancing queen” I don’t understand this part of the song’s ABBA
A: It's a little odd so don't worry! To "dig" something was the slang term from the 1960s/1970s. It can mean "to like" or "to understand"
"Can you dig it?" is like "Sounds good?"
"Dig this!" is like "Listen to what I'm about to say!"
So "digging the dancing queen" is like "I'm really liking this girl who's dancing."

No one really uses this slang anymore so don't worry about it too much!

Here's some old songs that use the phrase "to dig/ dig it/ can you dig it?"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7i72cbo_qdg (Everybody plays the fool, in the intro, "before you do something rash, dig this!" in this context means "listen up!")
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iqY35SYsyfQ (I dig rock and roll, here it means, "I like rock music!")
Q: How do you say this in English (US)? "are you ready to crank it up?" is it used when dancing? what does it mean?
A: its used in a club. it means to make the music louder and dance more
Q: How do you say this in English (US)? I like dancing.
I like to dance.
A: I don't think that is true. To me, they sound exactly the same.

If there is a difference...
In the gerund sentence, the noun "dancing" is abstract and might not refer to the speaker. If I like to watch ballet, I can say "I like dancing." even though I don't dance ballet.
But that would be a little weird. I think they are identical.

Q: I feel very good after dancing on a big stage standing in the spotlight even though I got nervous in front of many people.
Actually, I can't recognize their facial expression completely in the dark but when I dance at small coffee shop or nursery home I get nervous because it's so close to each other and I clearly can see their face. Does this sound natural?
A: This might be more natural:

"​​I felt great after dancing on such a big stage, standing in the spotlight, even though I was nervous in front of so many people.
When I'm on stage, it's too difficult to see the audience's facial expressions completely because it's so dark. When I dance at small coffee shops or nursery homes, however, I get nervous because I'm so close to the audience and can clearly see their faces."

I didn't change everything, but these are just some suggestions.
Hope this helps :)
