The easiest way to make one thing simple is to make it extra attention-grabbing. There’s little that is more durable to do than one thing that’s boring. For those who’re at present doing the identical factor every week to develop your dancing, then you definately would possibly discover among the following concepts useful. That is particularly so for those who’re eager to enhance a bit sooner, however you are not as eager on merely taking extra courses, which may very well be as a consequence of boredom or price.

Various kinds of courses

What kind of sophistication do you’re taking now? They is likely to be personal classes (1 on 1) or they is likely to be group classes. Every has their benefits and drawbacks. I don’t assume that one is definitely cheaper than the opposite. You pay extra for personal courses, however you be taught a lot sooner that it is about the identical price for a given improve in capability anyway. The key distinction is that in privates you’re dancing with somebody who’s skilled. Which means that for those who’re a poor lead or a poor comply with, then it won’t be evident to you, and will probably be exhausting so that you can know if that you must enhance it. Group courses provide you with a good chance to develop a capability that’s extra normal, since you dance with many individuals, and they’re social so usually extra enjoyable lindy blog. Nonetheless, you are unlikely to get loads of tailor-made suggestions until the teacher has that capability to choose small faults inside a big group and shortly level them out to you. For those who discover a group class like this, then depend your self very fortunate. I’ve solely ever been in a single. So for those who’ve been doing nothing however teams, then attempt some privates. You will discover individuals who do them at their home to maintain the value down, if worth is a matter. On the opposite hand for those who’re been doing nothing however privates, then attempt some group courses. They’re a kit cheaper, they’re loads of enjoyable and typically they’re mixed with social occasions.


You can argue workshop is a unique kind of sophistication, however I believe that they’re sufficiently completely different to warrant particular person consideration. Workshops aren’t actually dance courses. They usually concentrate on elements of accomplice dancing akin to musicality, arm styling, hip motion or normal motion train. A few of them are one offs and a few of them run weekly. I’ve been to a weekly class that targeted on motion strategies for Latin dancing. There was no time anybody partnered up and the actions revolved round strolling, core strengthening and the subtleties of several types of foot work. Individuals who went to those courses, and put the trouble in, at all times commented upon how they’d a greater understanding of what to do to get higher and had fun there as a result of the actions have been completely different from the same old dance class. I’ve additionally been to a musicality workshop at a Salsa competition in Hong Kong. When you’ve got somebody take the time to go over a group of strategies that assist you to higher perceive and specific music by means of dance, an entire new facet of dance opens as much as you. Preserve your eyes open for these workshops in your native space. For those who’re undecided the place to look, then ask your dance instructor; they need to have an concept. Workshops are a superb change and a great one will re-motivate you in your common class – making it simpler to enhance.

Social occasions at different locations or completely different types

Do you ever go to social dance occasions? Some folks don’t. For those who do, then do you at all times go to the identical one? If that’s the case, then that may get boring. A easy change of surroundings could make all of the distinction. Nonetheless, typically it’s simply listening to a unique teacher that may assist you to see issues in another way, and make enhancing dance attention-grabbing and enjoyable (and thus simpler) once more.

What would possibly actually make issues higher is a unique model. I talked a buddy, who was a salsa dancer, into going to a blues class/social night time that I had been going to for some time. The straightforward change in music made it far more satisfying for him. Nonetheless, merely doing a barely completely different dance made elements of salsa so much clearer to him as nicely. However what was in all probability the most important distinction was the character of the opposite dancers. The locations he danced at had loads of salsa dancers who have been a bit snobbish as a result of they felt they have been so refined being salsa dancers, which I discover wonderful as a result of salsa is a avenue dance not even actually recognise by worldwide dance organisation, however the folks on the blues class have been nothing however simple going and funky (it’s blues in any case, and you’ll’t get a lot cooler than that). You’ll be able to think about how such a unique expertise can be attention-grabbing and simply expose you to elements of dancing that can assist you to to enhance your capability


Movies will be good to follow with, however they may also be a great reference. I’d not have thought it doable till I skilled it, however you possibly can spend a lazy weekend afternoon watching a dance lesson on DVD. I used to be visiting a buddy who had injured herself dancing and had been spending the entire time watching DVDs of dance classes and numerous accomplice dance occasions akin to burn the ground. To at the present time, I can nonetheless bear in mind among the key factors from a Scottish dance champion on the way to transfer in rumba and noticing how my tradition impacts the way in which I dance after watching a global dance occasion. So if you wish to kill a while with just a few like-minded pals, then attempt watching some dance movies. It is easy to do and you’ll get just a few further tips on the way to dance higher.


Books are so much like movies. They make a superb reference, they usually can provide you some insights into targeted methods to enhance your dancing as you casually flip by means of them. You in all probability do not wish to get a e-book that solely tells you what your foot placement must be for every kind of dance. You’ve a dance instructor for that. Search for books that provide you with concepts on how one can simply enhance your dance capability or provide you with extra particular particulars on every dance. There are many wonderful free e-books online too so do an web seek for assets as nicely.
