FAQs about dance lessons Houston

 

Why take dance lessons?

There are many reasons why to take dance lessons and all of them are good. Some people learn to dance because of its social nature. They want to socialize and meet other people. Dance socials are the perfect place to do it! Other people take dance lessons because of their educational value. Those people like to learn something new. In dancing, you always learn something new. Even if you think you already learned a lot, there is still more to learn. There are also people that take dance lessons for exercise purposes. Dancing is a physical activity and it burns quite a few calories. Some people learn to dance because they want to compete. Competitive dancing, known as DanceSport is perfect for people that want to win and be the best. With many dance competitions around the country, you can compete every week! You may have your own reason to take dance lessons.

 

When should I start taking dance lessons?

In general, any time! There is no specific date by when you were supposed to start. Dancing is a great activity and people can benefit from it regardless of age. However, there may be a better time of year to start taking dance lessons. Depending on your personal work schedule and life style there may be a better month to start simply because you are not that busy. Overall, it is more difficult to learn something new when you have too much on your plate. So choose time that is a little less busy so that you can focus on dance lessons better. This way you can have a head start and learn faster.

 

Do guys do ballroom dance?

Well, yes guys do ballroom dance. Who do you think dances with ladies? Some other forms of dance such as ballet, jazz, modern, hip-hop do not require a partner to dance. Or they can be performed in a group of same-gender dancers. Ballroom dancing is different. You have to have a partner and it has to be opposite gender partner. That is just the whole point of ballroom dance for two people that are not alike to manage dancing together. Once again answering question, guys do ballroom dance and they dance with ladies, not other guys.

 

What kind of dance lessons should I take?

There are several different styles of dance that we teach at DanceSport Club. We have “Social Ballroom” which is officially called “American Smooth” and includes Waltz, Tango, Foxtrot and Viennese Waltz. This is a quite easy style that was designed specifically for social ballroom dancing. We have “Social Latin” that includes Salsa, Bachata, Merengue and Cumbia. This style is very popular in Houston night clubs. Then, we have American Style Rhythm that includes ChaCha, Rumba, Bolero and Swing. These dances are normally danced at Ballroom socials. If you are up to a challenge, learn International Style! It consists of International Standard (Waltz, Tango, Viennese Waltz, Slow Foxtrot and Quickstep) and International Latin (Samba, ChaCha, Rumba, PasoDoble and Jive). What is the difference? International Style is somewhat more sophisticated and technically difficult. Often it is considered a competitive dance style. However, the good news is that you can dance it anywhere in the world! That is why they call it International.

 

How many dance lessons do I need?

Number of dance lessons that you would need depends on the goal and level of experience that you have. If you want to learn enough to get by at a particular social dance such as salsa, a couple of lessons might work. On the other hand, if you want to be proficient enough to dance all Ballroom dances at social, it may take quite a few lessons. Thus, you need to decide on a specific goal and pursue it! Set challenging, yet realistic goals. And be consistent with your lessons and practicing. Depending on your budget take 1 or 2 lessons per week, whether private or group class. Remember the golden rule of practicing – for every hour of lesson you need to practice at least 2-3 hours to retain the information and be able to move forward.

 

How to take dance lessons?

There must be a better way to take dance lessons and retain the information. People remember about 50% of what they just learned in class within 1 hour! How do you overcome this problem? First, active listening is important. Do not just stand in class and hear teacher. Try to understand and internalize the information. Second, repetition is the key. Try to analyze and recall in your mind as much as you can right after the lesson. If you need, take notes. Use paper, your phone or laptop and jot some notes for yourself. Between this class and next one, try to practice. You may not remember everything, but try to accomplish as much as possible. Before your next dance class, once again go through what you learned in dance class before. Your dancing will improve at much faster rate if are able to remember and execute what is learned in class.

 

What to wear to ballroom dance lessons?

If you have ballroom dance shoes with suede soles – wear them. If you have practice clothing – wear it. Otherwise, at DanceSport Club, we suggest that people wear comfortable, stretchy clothing, something similar to work out clothes. We do not recommend jeans because even “stretchy” ones are quite restrictive. As for the shoes, stay away from street high heels. First of all, they are not designed for dancing. Second, they damage hardwood dance floor. You can wear lower heel shoes that hold your foot well or socks. Yes, dancing in socks is very good; it helps you to develop your feet faster. If you feel that you need some sort of shoes, get ballet slippers, they are inexpensive, light, and flexible and have suede on the bottom. As for guys, tennis shoes are not the best option. Wear dress shoes that are somewhat flexible or, once again, socks! You can also opt for ballet slippers, just get the black ones.


Ballroom and Latin Dance Shoes

We recommend that you invest in a pair of good quality dance shoes. Light and comfortable, dance shoes will help you to improve your dancing much faster. The classes are held on the hardwood floor, therefore having proper dance shoes would be highly beneficial. You can find comfortable and affordable Ballroom and Latin dance shoes, as well as some practice clothing at local dance store - International Dance Design, located next door to DanceSport Club.
