Skipping it is fine. An alternative I've seen which really depends on your FI is having the entire wedding party dance together but then 'snowball' -so after a few seconds everyone splits up and pulls a guest onto the dance floor. Its a great way to fill up the floor. You and FI could split, or you could stay together. The floor will have lots of people so he may feel more comfortable.
