Learn to Dance in 3 Easy Lessons

Learning to dance is easy, but only when you know what it takes to make it easy.  Dancing itself is a skill. Like learning a language or playing a sport or instrument, the only way you get better is to learn and practice.  Using these two elements of learning and practicing will make the world of dancing yours. Just like learning any other skill, you can decide if you want to speak spanglish to your sympathetic friends or actually travel to Spain, play chopsticks on the table or be in the band, score a hole-in-one in mini golf or win the country club tournament.  With dancing, the potential you can reach is up to you. Are you happy doing the 8th grade sway or do you want to amaze yourself and your friends or even dance in a competition?  Here it is, 3 easy lessons to learn to dance.

Lesson 1:  Start Now

If this is something that is important to you, you need to start today.  Because dancing is a skill, it is something that needs to get ingrained into your body.  So the sooner you start, the sooner you will feel natural on the dance floor.

Lesson 2: Keep Lessons Close

The closer you keep your lessons, the less likely you are to loose what you learned on the previous lesson.  Better yet, the more you retain from the previous lesson, the easier it is for your teacher to move on to new concepts that will give your dancing more style, help you gain confidence and make it all feel easier.

Lesson 3: Practice

We all know that practice makes perfect or more specifically practice make permanent. The more you practice, the more you have the dancing in your body and the more confident you become on the dance floor.  Obviously we all can’t drop everything all the time and practice for hours on end, so find moments to practice.  Box steps as you brush your teach, rock steps in the shower, triple stepping at the copy machine and the list goes on and on.  The point is, use those spare moments to make those moves a part of you.

We want to hear what you have to say!  Let us know how your experience turned out and what lesson worked best for you. Keep on dancing!
