The best way to make something easy is to make it more interesting. There’s little that’s harder to do than something that is boring. If you’re currently doing the same thing each week to develop your couples dancing, then you might find some of the following ideas helpful. This is especially so if you’re keen to improve a bit faster, but you’re not as keen on simply taking more classes, which could be due to boredom or cost.
What type of class do you take now? They might be private lessons (1 on 1) or they might be group lessons dance studio hong kong. Each has their advantages and disadvantages. I do not think that one is actually cheaper than the other. You pay more for private classes, but you learn so much faster that it’s about the same cost for a given increase in ability anyway. The major difference is that in privates you are dancing with someone who is experienced.
Group classes give you an excellent chance to develop an ability that is more general, because you dance with many people, and they are social so often more fun. However, you’re unlikely to get a lot of tailored feedback unless the instructor has that ability to pick small faults within a large group and quickly point them out to you. If you find a group class like this, then count yourself very lucky. I have only ever been in one. So if you’ve been doing nothing but groups.
You could argue that a workshop is a different type of class, but I think that they are sufficiently different to warrant individual consideration. Workshops aren’t really dance classes. They typically focus on aspects of partner dancing such as musicality, arm styling, hip action or general movement exercise. Some of them are one offs and some of them run weekly. I have been to a weekly class that focused on movement techniques for Latin dancing. There was no time anyone partnered up and the activities revolved around walking.
and put the effort in, always commented upon how they had a better understanding of what to do to get better and had a good time there because the activities were different from the usual dance class. I have also been to a musicality workshop at a Salsa festival in Hong Kong. When you have someone take the time to go over a collection of techniques that help you better understand and express music through dance, a whole new aspect of dance opens up to you. Keep your eyes open for these workshops in your local area. If you’re not sure where to look.
What might really make things better is a different style. I talked a friend, who was a salsa dancer, into going to a blues class/social night that i had been going to for a while. The simple change in music made it much more enjoyable for him. However, simply doing a slightly different dance made aspects of salsa a lot clearer to him as well. But what was probably the biggest difference was the nature of the other dancers.
Videos can be good to practice with, but they can also be a good reference. I would not have thought it possible until I experienced it, but you can spend a lazy weekend afternoon watching a dance lesson on DVD. I was visiting a friend who had injured herself dancing and had been spending the whole time watching Dvds of dance lessons and various partner dance events such as burn the floor. To this day, I can still remember some of the key points from a Scottish dance champion on how to move in rumba and noticing how my culture affects the way I dance after watching an international dance event.
