One of the great advantages of being a student with Arthur Murray Dance Studio’s, is how you’re able to come and go to as many group classes, and practice parties as you can!
Now even though you might say that you’re only interested in Salsa, or you only want to learn Foxtrot or Swing, or already have partner and don’t want to dance with anyone else, that’s not really true. The reason is, you may not realize that in order to understand the fundamentals of ballroom dance it’s important to understand how all of the different styles correlate with one another, as well as how to lead or follow any dancer.
By gaining this understanding, it will help you achieve any dance goal you may have in the long run.
Having the skill to listen to your leader, or guide your follower out on the dance floor is HUGE. By coming to as many practices as possible this will help you sharpen your tools. In addition it will give you that appreciation for the dances you already love even more, and help you develop your own style by discovering how movement transforms through different dances.
Now picture this, if you were to take advantage of every bit of practice time through practice parties or group classes, that would be 75+ hours of dancing added to your skills and experience every single month. Can you imagine how amazing you’ll get in just a few short months?
Whether you are preparing for your wedding, some kind of social dancing event, or you wish to compete, we definitely encourage everyone to give group classes and practice parties a full chance in their dance program, and take advantage of this awesome opportunity to get good at something we all enjoy doing!
Next time you’re in the studio, let your dance instructor help recommend your group classes and practice parties to help you achieve your dance goals!
