Luckily, there are a few tips to help you with your dancing!
Here at Arthur Murray Dance Studio, we know how wonderful and helpful having dance in your life is. We also want to help you become the best dancer you can be. That’s why we have put together three top tips to help you further your dancing lifestyle. If you enjoy having dance in your life or want to start making dance a big part of it, be sure to keep reading to learn more:
- Connection. Dancing with others is a thrilling experience. As your feet dance across the floor, you read each other’s moves and communicate with unspoken words. You will form a connection with your dance partner, and isn’t that an amazing experience? There is an exercise that will help strengthen your dance communication when dancing with others.
- Posture. From a young age, you have surely heard many times to sit up straight, and were constantly reminded to watch your posture. It is not only good for your health, but also helps within your dance as it assists you with balance and dancing with a partner. For this exercise, you will begin standing against a wall, back connecting with the wall. Then, pull your shoulders down and stretch your head back for one minute. Carefully walk away from the wall and see how long your body can hold that position.
- Styling. When a really good song comes on, your body wants to move to the beat. From swaying your hips to rocking your head back and forth, your style of dancing may be different and you will move your body differently. For example, when dancing the Tango, you are going to be bending your knees more, while the Rhumba will have your hips moving more. These add feeling to the dance and movements to your body. Remember, you can work on your styling when you have posture and connection down.
