Whether you’re heading for a salsa dance class or a social dancing night, there are some mistakes that you absolutely need to avoid in order to enjoy yourself and also make your partner have a good time on the floor!
“Dance is the hidden language of the soul of the body”- Martha Graham
There are many shortcuts to happiness, and dancing is one of them. It is incredible to see how those grooves and moves can have such a profound influence on our emotional makeup. Different cultures have different dance forms that symbolize their distinct aspects.
The 2016 film and almost Oscar-winner, "La La Land" provides a satisfying combination of song and dance, with impressive performances from well-known celebrities. This energetic combination and revival of film styles similar to the Technicolor musicals of the 1940s and '50s have made it one of the most popular films of the year, leading to a resurgence in curiosity, interest and passion for dance.
You've probably watched your instructors glide effortlessly across the dance floor and thought to yourself, "They make it look so easy." This is because they've strengthened their balance, focus and overall memory through repeated exercise of their biggest muscle: the brain.
There is enough evidence to prove that dancing could in fact be one of the most effective and
exhilarating ways to lose weight and get into shape. Not everyone is built to go to the gym,
do pilates or run endlessly to shed those extra pounds. Some people find working out to be an
extremely boring agenda on their daily to-do list. For those of you who need motivation to
get that body into shape, dancing is a great option, especially ballroom dancing.
“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.
