Dances Tips and Tricks
Whether you’re an experienced dancer or a complete beginner, there are always little tricks and tips that can help improve your dancing. This article contains a few of our favorite tips and tricks to help you take your dancing up a notch!
Practice in an area with plenty of room. This will save you from injury and it also gives you the freedom to explore movements you may not have done before. If you are unsure about how to do something, watch other dancers. You don’t want to copy what they are doing exactly, but it can be a good way to get ideas and see how a figure is done.
Make eye contact with your partner (but don’t be a creep!). Keeping eye contact with your partner helps them feel engaged and it also reduces dizziness during sustained turns. Try to look at their ear, chin, or forehead instead of at the floor or walls; looking at the wall or floor while spinning is practically guaranteed to make you dizzy!
Remember that everyone, even the most experience dancers, makes mistakes during a set. Do not be embarrassed to ask for, or accept, help from other dancers if you have spaced out or made a mistake; it is better to be helped than to continue to make mistakes! Just be sure to offer and receive help with a cheerful disposition; it isn’t fair to either party if you are angry or snappy.
