Dances Tips and Tricks
Many people have trouble picking up the beat of a song when they are dancing. To help with this, try listening to a song that has a clear rhythm. For example, listen to the drums in “Uptown Funk.”
Another good way to pick up the beat is by watching other dancers. This helps you find the right pace to dance at and will make it easier for you to join in with a group or other couples. It is also important to know your floor etiquette. This includes not stepping over other dancers or crossing paths with them. It is also important to keep your eyes on the audience and avoid looking down at the floor.
If a dance move seems too challenging, break it down into smaller parts and practice each piece individually. Then gradually put the parts together until you can do the whole dance. This will help you improve your muscle memory and increase your confidence.
Using tricks in your dance is fine as long as you are using them with proper technique. Too often dancers get caught up in the latest flexibility stunt or trend trick and feel pressure to do something they are not ready for. This is not only bad for their scores and progress but it can be dangerous as well.
Lastly, remember to be yourself and smile. Dancing is fun and everyone wants to see you enjoy it!
