3 Methods to Help You Learn How to Dance

Have you ever wanted to get started with dance lessons? For that matter, were you aware of the different ways you could get started learning how to dance?

Below are 3 effective methods you can use to help get started and dance your heart out.

Personal Dance Instruction / Private lessons

If cost isn’t a factor, you may want to consider personal/private dance lessons. With one-on-one instruction, you will have the direct attention of the instructor. This can be beneficial when it comes to focusing on specific challenges or strengths with your dancing.

Additionally, with private dance instruction, you will move at your own speed. The pace of your instruction will not be reliant on other students to catch up or feel left behind by trainees who have a higher start level of skill.

When compared to some of the other readily available approaches to learn how to dance, the advantages of personal instruction can be significant.

Formal Group Dance Lessons

Perhaps the most common type of dance lessons available. In fact, this is our preferred approach to teaching dance classes.

With group lessons, children can be challenged by their peers. Building relationships and comradery is one of the most significant benefits of having your child participate in group dance lessons.

You can sign up for group dance lessons at practically any age. In most cases, we recommend children as young as age 3 start learning how to dance.

There are, however, a few requirements and recommendations we ask parents of dance students to be aware of. Many dance studios will have a dance class FAQ that addresses commonly asked questions, such as when to start your child in dance lessons.

Video Dance Instruction

Believe it or not, YouTube is a fantastic resource for learning how to dance. Whether you’re interested in learning hip-hop basics or more complex ballet moves, the internet is a great place to pick up a few pointers.

As you can see in the video below from Mihtan Kirakosian, there are some basic moves even the most inexperienced dancer can pick up.

What’s best about videos is that you can pause and rewind as necessary. This can allow more inexperienced dancers to really understand the moves and learn at their own pace.

In addition to learning dance moves, video instruction can be a great resource for learning how to do your hair and makeup for dance competitions.
