Whether you are learning a new dance, performing in a competition or just having fun dancing with friends, there are some helpful tips and tricks that will make your night out more successful.
Observe Others: Watching other people dancing is a great way to get inspiration for new moves, figures or steps that you may want to add to your repertoire. If you are working on a particular dance, it can also help you figure out what your own body is missing in terms of technique.
Record Your Practice: These days it is very easy to record your practice and watch it back later. This will allow you to see what you are doing wrong and correct it.
Visualize Your Dancing: Create a clear image of what your dancing should look like. This will help you keep your goals in mind and be able to adapt quickly when you begin a new routine.
Give Weight: When working on a particular dance, it can be tempting to lean on your partner too much. This can be a mistake and can cause injury to both you and your Partner. Instead, you want to dance with a strong frame.
Learn How to Listen: It’s not uncommon for dancers to be out of sync with the music, regardless of how long they have been dancing or how well they are musically connected. This can be caused by a variety of reasons, including attempting a new move or changing the song.
