In social partner dancing, great posture is everything! Learn few ways that your perfect posture will aid you in becoming a confident social dancer.

One Size Does NOT Fit All!

Congratulations! You are finally ready  (after years of successfully talking yourself out of it) to give dance lessons a try. Now comes the tricky part…How do I find the right studio for me (us)? Not all dance studios in Arizona, or anywhere for that matter, are alike. Here are a few things to consider when looking for the right dance studio for you:

Clarify Your Own Dancing Goals First: Are you looking to become a competitive ballroom dancer or a confident social dancer? Maybe you would like to be both. Most people want to do one or the other so be sure to figure out what would fit best into your lifestyle before beginning the research process. To clarify, competitive ballroom dancing looks more like what you may find on “Dancing With The Stars”. The movements are generally very large and showy. Social dancing is what you will use if you are at a wedding, in a bar, on a cruise or at a dance  club. It requires learning small movements that you can take to a crowded dance floor comfortably. Do your research on all of the local ballroom dance studios in your area once you know your ultimate goal on the dance floor. Ask questions or research the websites of these local studios to see if your particular needs will be met by the concept of that studio. You may also want to visit the dance studio to watch a few lessons and see if you feel comfortable in the atmosphere. Researching testimonials online from others who have taken lessons at that particular location are also useful.

Try an Introductory Private Lesson: Another wonderful way to see if a particular Phoenix dance studio is right for you is to go in for a sampler dance lesson. A private dance lesson will give you the one-on-one instruction needed to see not only the style of instruction offered, but your instructor’s teaching philosophy and the overall feel of the environment. Meeting with your instructor and getting a feel for the culture of your local dance studio is invaluable. Warning! Beware of dance studios in Arizona that offer really cheap introductory “specials”, maybe even free sampler lessons, to get started. Learning to dance is an investment and there are no shortcuts. Inevitably, you will be asked to pay the going rate for ballroom dance lessons when you are taking private dance lessons and being misled only ends up with a frustrating experience.

Dance lessons are a exciting experience for both couples and singles as long as you find the right learning environment. All too often, people give up on learning to dance because of a negative experience that has squashed their desire. If you determine that social dancing is for you, you will be in great hands at Dance FX Studios in Mesa, Arizona. We provide an encouraging and supportive learning atmosphere that can make a dancer out of anyone.

Valentine’s Day is THIS WEEK!

Grab your sweetheart or give yourself the gift that keeps on giving and learn to dance this Valentine’s Day. Why learn to Swing, Salsa, Two Step or Tango this year? Dancing is a romantic, healthy and exciting hobby that is for everybody regardless of age, background or gender. Here are a few more reasons why dancing is for you:

1. Looking to expand your social circle?: Try going to a Latin or Swing club or a Country bar and actually know what you are doing on the dance floor. It’s a great skill for both guys and girls to know how to dance. With partner dancing especially, you can meet new friends, a potential dance partner or even that special someone on the dance floor. Who knew that dancing could open so many doors?? Watch your confidence soar after a few private dance lessons and see how that translates to a whole new social world of fun and excitement anywhere music is being played.

2. Every woman loves a guy that can dance!: Beyond the romance of Valentine’s Day, most women would love to go out Tango or Two Step dancing after an intimate dinner. Guys, wouldn’t you like to be the one to invite her on the dance floor and KNOW what to do? Increase your chances of standing out with the ladies by taking some dance lessons with her or solo. Either way, you will have scored major points for making the effort to add more romance to your night out.

3. Dancing is a great stress reliever: Give dance lessons a try to let off steam after a long day or to re-connect with your special someone. Whether you learn to dance with or without a dance partner, you will be rejuvenated and ready to go after an hour of Salsa, Swing, Tango or Two Step dancing. Ballroom dancing is a wonderful outlet for unwinding after a stressful day. While the endorphins are flowing, you are taking time to re-charge your battery and give back to you. Nothing is more important.
