Whether it’s dancing around to your favourite tunes, dancing to a friend’s music or dancing with your partner, dance is a great way to get active, have fun and stay fit. It’s suitable for people of all ages, shapes and sizes and can be enjoyed in a variety of settings including dance schools, social venues, community halls and at home.
How to Dance
The first step to dancing is to pick a style that you like and start practicing it. You can practice with a friend or even watch someone else dance to get some ideas.
There are many different types of dance, from jazz to ballet, salsa, tango, country dancing and hip hop! The choice is yours but it’s important to choose a style that suits you and will be easy for you to learn.
You should also avoid staring at your feet whilst learning new dances as this can be distracting and make it harder for you to concentrate on the movement itself. Instead, pay attention to how your body moves, how the music makes you move and where the weight shifts between each step!
When you’re feeling confident and comfortable, it’s often a good idea to try out more advanced or fancy movements. However, be sure that they’re not too exaggerated and that you look good doing them!
Ultimately, the most important thing is to have fun and keep moving. This will make you feel and look good so you can really get into the spirit of dancing!
