HOW TO LEARN (YOUR FIRST) DANCE F-A-S-T
Practice in between sessions. We learn how to dance through repetition – after all dancing is a motor activity. If you leave a huge gap in between your dance classes (say: two weeks), it will be so much harder to get back in the game. You will find that you’re having trouble with movements you didn’t have trouble with before. You know that saying: “If you don’t use it…”
Regular classes and a bit of practicing in between are the perfect recipe for learning the first dance (any dance as a matter of fact) quick. But you know what’s the best part? You can get away with practicing for 5-10 minutes here and there. That’s how little it takes to start remembering all the movements, turns, patterns of your dance as well as teacher’s instructions. Simply grab your partner, put your first dance song on and dance. If you have questions: note them down, email your teacher, get answers so that you’re not practicing ‘the wrong way’.
…you loose it” was the end of that saying in case you were wondering 🙂
