How to dance

Learning how to dance is as simple as hearing the music and learning the steps. Even if you have two left feet, you can learn to dance. There are countless of dances that have developed over the years from the Tango to the Waltz to line dancing and disco. Typically, dancing involves a partner, but thereís no reason why a person canít dance single and maybe have more fun.

Dancing is merely moving to music. To learn how to dance, you must build the confidence to take the steps and move to the music. You can take a dance class and learn with others or you can learn to dance in the privacy of your own home, as there are countless books and how-to videos available.

Clear a spot in any room of your house that accommodates room for movement and where you can play music. Choose your favorite type of music and listen for the beat. Move your feet in rhythm with the beat until you are comfortable with your movements. Dancing is fluid and you should find your comfort zone so you can work out awkward, jerky movements.

Learning by yourself is probably more comfortable, but eventually, you will want to learn to dance with a partner. In the beginning, choose a few simple dances that are done solo and learn the steps and movements to those dances. When you have them mastered, move on to dancing with a partner. It may also be helpful to observe others dancing and pay attention to how they move separately and together.

A little practice will not only improve your steps, but also boost your confidence. Itís really all you need if you just want to have some fun at an upcoming wedding reception or your senior prom. If you desire to learn to dance for performance, you should take lessons as soon as you are confident enough to do so.
