Success on the dance floor actually starts before you even get there. If you’re not prepared physically and mentally, you’re not going to achieve your dance goals, no matter how hard you work yourself. Here are some tips on how to prepare for your first dance session:
Okay, so you’ve gotten over the initial fear. You’ve been watching others dance like crazy for the past hour. You’re wearing your new shoes. So, what do you actually do on the dance floor? This simple four step dance is a great place to start:
Let’s break it down:
See how simple this is? To keep it looking sharp, throw in some variations with each rotation. Did you flip your hair to the right last rotation? Now flip it to the left. If you rolled your hips before, try dipping them next rotation.
This four-step is both easy to master and extremely versatile. You’re sure to look amazing and can add some personality as you get used to the basic movements.
What about dancing with a partner? If you’re aiming for a classy dance experience with your significant other or a fellow dance classmate, keep this in mind: it's always 50/50. Lots of times it's great to think about connecting through your belly button. Right? So, if you feel your partner pull away, you pull away a little bit. If you feel him give, you give a little bit. If you can master that concept and just take a second with your partner and really pay attention to each other’s bodies, your partnering in general is going to improve.
Are things getting a little spicy and you want to know how to take a dip? Try the Latin dip. The best thing about the Latin dip is that it’s flexible. You can use this simple dance move with your partner with just about any kind of music playing in the background. And it’s pretty hot.
Here’s some things to keep in mind:
Alright, alright. As a beginner, how can you add some spice to your movements? Are there really sexy dance moves out there for women who are just starting out? Absolutely yes!
We recommend starting with another kind of dip: the hip dip. It’s so easy to pull off, and the name says it all.
Here are the basics:
An important thing to note here is the arch. Once you’ve bent your knees in step three, giving your body a slight arch will give your figure a little spice and make the hip movements that much hotter.
Now that you have a few dance tips and tricks up your sleeve, get out there and start dancing. Even the simplest moves will take some practice to perfect, so it’s important to start sooner rather than later!
