There are numerous studios around you that offer ballroom dance classes. It’s important to pick a good studio because the instructors and the environment of the studio will ensure that the students remain motivated and achieve their dance goals. But how do you know which is the right studio to choose? Here are a few tips that you can use so that you make the right choice when it comes to selecting a dance studio.
Ballroom dancing is based on certain basic concepts of leading and following. Without these, both dancers might feel lost on the dance floor and end up looking clumsy. Before getting into ‘how to lead and follow,' let’s look at some important ballroom dancing basics.
• Maintain a good upper body posture. You need to keep your shoulders relaxed and your spine upright.
• Remember to dance on the balls of your feet. You will have to constantly shift your weight from one foot to the other while dancing.
• Ensure that your right arm is firm and does move in isolation or independently of your body.
“Most people seem to think that good dancers are born. But all of the good dancers that I know have been taught or trained.” ~Fred Astaire
One of the best things I ever did for myself was learning how to Ballroom Dance. It has completely changed my life, and I can’t imagine what it would be like if I had not taken the chance and went to my first dance class. I was 26, and I had never been to a dance class. That first class was fun, intimidating, scary, and incredibly addicting. I knew right then and there that I had found my passion and that I would do whatever it takes to keep dancing.
