Hi, can we say the next sentence:

"I want to, like you can,

to dance or to run..."

Is that sentence grammatically correct?

Thank you for your help?

No, the sentence is not grammatically correct. Write this:

I want to dance and run like you can.

Yes and no. It sounds like a snatch of poetry or lyrics. In other words, it is possible with a little imagination on my part, but it is unusual, and I don't understand the dots at the end.

Thank you for your help. Yes you are right, I do try to write this sentence in a poetic way, like you would write lyrics, hence it is sound somewhat strange, is there any way to rephrase this sentence so it will be grammatically correct? like:

"I want....

you can,

dance or run"

Is that a better version?
