Country Western dancing AZ

Country Dance All Summer Long!

Country Western dancing in ArizonaDoes Country music invoke happy thoughts? Do you find yourself tapping your feet, smiling, and maybe even singing along to your favorite tunes (even if it’s in the shower)? Build upon those feelings by learning to Country dance! Dance FX Studios in Mesa, Arizona has been teaching social dance lessons to singles and couples in the Phoenix valley for 15 years. Many students come in specifically for Country dances! There are three popular styles of dances done to Country music here in Arizona that you MUST know 🙂 : Country Two-Step, Country Swing, and Country Waltz.

Country Two-Step is one of the most common dances in the bars. It is a fun and easy dance with twirls, twists, and turns! There are two varieties of Country Two Step dancing: Progressive or Rhythm. The only difference between the two is that one travels (Progressive) and the other is mostly stationary (Rhythm). Both are great to know in preparation for going out dancing, however, in Arizona, Rhythm Two-Step is done almost exclusively out in the bars because it is effective for crowded dance floors.

Country Swing was recently recognized as one of the many Swing dance variations! It does have certain guidelines, which includes cool turns, spins, and combinations, that help keep you on time with the music while having fun on the floor. It is also adaptable to music other than Country which makes it great to use at either a wedding or a bar! This dance is higher energy, fun, bouncy and often results in many smiles!

Country Waltz is a progressive dance that has a more relaxed look to it than other Waltz styles. In the Country Waltz, the frame, hand and arm gestures are not exaggerated. This is a great dance to have in your back pocket for slow Country songs. Remember to keep that romance alive!

Cowboy boots are always welcome, but not necessary. In the end, we want YOU to have a great time! Dancing can be a relaxing, fun, new hobby for you to partake in whether you are dancing with a partner or just solo. This is a skill you’ll have for the rest of your life!

Time for a Date Night?

istock_000003278041mediumStarting to run out of those date night ideas? Or are you just sick and tired of going to the movies and dinner all of the time? How about trying your hand at social dancing lessons! You can try group dance lessons or private dance lessons, which will offer a little more flexibility to your schedules. Private dance lessons are also going to be a little more intimate as it will be just yourself and your partner learning the dance with the dance instructor.

Try dancing lessons as your date night and you can also begin to feel less stressed, be more relaxed, and have a deeper connection with your partner. As you progress further into your lessons, you may also notice that you are improving in a number of other areas as well. Some things you may see are improved balance, better agility, increased flexibility, better stamina, and more confidence, among other things. Your other date night activities probably don’t have so many benefits to them do they? You probably receive more time with your partner, bonding over a similar interest, having fun together, and getting some time alone from kids or just life in general. Taking dance lessons offers you just that and even more!

If you would like to see for yourself, the many benefits that social dancing can have, try Dance FX Studios in Mesa, Arizona, for your next date night!

Get Your Groove On in the Nightclub

Learn to dance mesa azThe club scene can be quite fun and exhilarating, especially if you are now legal to get in. Have you wanted to out to the clubs or dance halls but come up with some excuse every time someone asks you to? Don’t say no just because you can’t dance! Taking private or group dance classes can help you learn some moves to use on the dance floor and you will feel more confident about your dancing. If you are uncoordinated and have two left feet, dance classes can also help you find your rhythm and get you to move more comfortably in your own body.

Depending on the type of club you want to go to and the style of dancing at the club should help you decide which dance class to take. If you like Country Western bars, or clubs, then you should probably take classes that teach Country Two-Step, Country Swing, Country Waltz, and other popular Country Western dances.

If you would rather go to a nightclub where they play Hip Hop and other popular music from today, then you can pull inspiration from a couple of different dance styles. You can learn moves from Hip Hop dancing and even Latin dances, such as Salsa, Cha Cha, and Merengue. Becoming confident in your own abilities is the first step to getting you into that club with your friends. Gain some confidence now with beginning dance private and group lessons.

Dance FX Studios in Mesa, AZ, is just the place to learn how to dance with Private Dance Lessons and Group Dance Lessons. Private dance lessons allow you to work on specific moves that are difficult for you. They also give you all the attention that you may need with the instructor. More information about Private Dance Lessons can be found at .

If you prefer a group setting, our Group Dance Lessons are held for 4 consecutive weeks and build upon the previous class. Group Classes start up again during the 1st week of April. Additional information on Group Dance Lessons can be seen at

Become A Social Butterfly with Dancing Lessons

Scottsdale dancing lessonsOne thing that many people need are social connections. If you have recently graduated high school or college and are longing for those social clubs, you should give dancing a shot. Dance lessons can be just as fun as clubs from school, possibly even more fun if you allow it. With a regularly scheduled group class, you will meet new people and have a chance to socialize with a group that has a common connection.

If you don’t care about the whole social scene, well maybe you are looking for that special someone? It is known that many women enjoy dancing for dancing, but men often come in to gain the confidence and skills to ask a lady to dance at clubs, bars, or wherever it may be. Dancing is a great tool to use to get to know someone or meet someone. Who knows, you may even meet someone in dance class! However, do not rule out dancing if you have already got a partner. Dance classes can be a great learning tool for both of you to get to know each other better or strengthen the relationship that you have.

Other benefits that may interest you include stress relief, self-confidence, improved health, relaxation, and fun. With all of the benefits that dancing can offer you, it can be just the thing that you need and don’t know it yet. Won’t it be nice to have something that you can look forward to again? But, let us warn you that it may become addicting and you may never want to stop.

Dance and Romance…

Tempe dancing classes for adultsHave you ever thought of sprucing up your romantic relationship with your spouse or loved one? In a busy world, couples may forget to rekindle their love and strengthen their relationships. A unique way to bond with your partner is through ballroom dancing. Giving a couple a common interest, such as ballroom dancing, can help to build a stronger relationship or even can assist in repairing one. Ballroom dancing allows a couple to work on various things, such as cooperation, communication, romance, emotional connection, and individual growth.

Since ballroom dancing has a “leader” and a “follower” roles, the couple must rely on one another and cooperate with each other as they move across the dance floor. The leader needs to be able to control the dance and effectively signal to the follower what the next move will be. On the other hand, the follower has to be able and willing to interpret those signals and carry through with the next move.

Ballroom dancing is a give-and-take relationship from both partners, whose success relies not only upon the cooperation, but the communication between the couple as well. By communication, it does not mean verbal, but non-verbal communication. Partners will be more aware of each other’s non-verbal signals and messages, as you do not verbally tell your partner what you will be doing next. This ability to talk and listen non-verbally also translates into everyday life, more specifically your relationship. So much of communication is non-verbal and being able to effectively understand your partner’s non-verbal cues will help tremendously in strengthening that relationship.

Not only does ballroom dancing give you a deeper understanding of one another and your relationship, it allows you to spend more time with one another through a mutual interest. Through the use of ballroom dancing you can have a deeper understanding of yourself, your partner, and your relationship with one another. So why not spice up your love life with some lessons in ballroom dancing?
