Learning to Dance Is an Investment That Keeps on Paying Back

Of all the hobbies you may have, dancing is one which goes with you wherever you go in years to come.

Learning Dance While Having Fun

Teachers are trained to make learning fun and easy, and you can help by remembering the following:

  • Let your teacher do the teaching. This means avoid finding fault with each other which can be distracting.
  • It’s not how many steps you know; it’s how you execute them. (You always notice good dancers by how they move, not by how many patterns they do.) Learning too many steps too soon results in bad habits and frustration at not executing them properly.
  • Communicate with your teacher so that he or she will know what to teach you and the way you like to be taught. The more we know about your dance needs the better we can plan your lessons now and prepare your future program.
  • It’s important to keep your lessons close together, and more importantly to use them in close conjunction with group lessons and practice lessons. Ideally, each visit should be scheduled to include more than one activity. This will aid you in making speedy progress and gaining confidence in your dancing in a shorter period of time.
  • Learning to dance is an investment that keeps on paying back. Of all the hobbies you may have, dancing is one which goes with you wherever you go in years to come.
