Come Country Dancing With Dance FX Studios!

Country Western dance lessons ArizonaWhat did you do this past Saturday night? Do you wish you were out Country dancing with friends, or meeting new people out Country dancing? If so, we would have loved to have you join us at San Tan Flat in Queen Creek! We had a blast Swing dancing, Two Stepping and spending time with our group, who are all Country music and dance fans.

In the land of the Cowboy here in Arizona, Country Western Dance Lessons are almost essential if you plan to wrangle-up the Cowgirl of your dreams. Two Step dancing and Swing dancing are all the rage, so knowing how to do it with confidence is key! Ladies…don’t miss out on being swept off of your feet by a true Cowboy (or at least one in the making). And guys…you know the ladies love to dance, so why would you not want to explore Country dancing as a cool, new hobby? See for yourself how your social life will expand once you know how to dance.

Country dance venues are popping up on every corner around the Phoenix metro area, and Country dancing in Arizona is as popular as ever. Arizonans love to boot n’ scoot their nights away at Country bars like Whiskey Row, Denim and Diamonds, and Handle Bar J’s! When you’re thinking of learning something new, it just makes sense to learn to Country dance, especially if you live here in the southwest.

Did you know there is even a form of Two Step that is almost done exclusively here in Arizona? It is called the Arizona Two Step, or Rhythm Two Step. What’s great about it is that you don’t need a ton of space to learn the Rhythm Two Step, which is fantastic for crowded dance floors around town. Really though, it doesn’t matter what form of Two Step that you end up doing because they are fun and easy to learn and dance. You are sure to have a great time Country dancing, so grab your partner, a group of friends, or come solo, and get started with beginner’s Country Dance Lessons today!

If you would like to practice your Country dancing with a group of other Country dance lovers, sign up for one of our upcoming dance events. Our professional instructors will be there to help you look incredible on the dance floor! Plus, you’ll meet other dancers who are at all stages of learning to dance themselves. Check out our Dance Events page for details and to see what our Night’s Out include. You can even sign up to join us through our free app called Dance FX Studios.

Do you find yourself tapping your feet, smiling, and maybe even singing along to your favorite Country music? Then it’s time to discover Country Dancing! Grab your Cowboy boots and let’s get Two-Stepping. Replace those nights on the couch with evenings filled with laughter, fun and new friends. Dancing can offer a lot of fun for those who are willing to give it a shot. Who knows, this may even turn out to be something you really enjoy and can be a brand new skill and hobby for you.

Become a competent dancer and find out for yourself how to really heat up your nights. NOW is the time to get started so that you can really shine on any dance floor.  Let us help you to become the dancer you are envisioning – smooth and natural – while having a great time and learning a life-long skill that will cover you for any occasion.

Lucky in Love

Phoenix Salsa dancingAs we move into March, the “luck of the Irish” comes to mind. From four-leaf clovers to pots of gold, wouldn’t we all be a bit happier with a little luck on our side? Guys, if you’re looking to get lucky in love this month, or any month for that matter, here’s our suggestion: learn to dance!

Think of how cool it would be to know how to Country Two Step dance, Swing dance or Salsa dance. The ladies would be lining up just to be taken around the dance floor by you. Luck is no longer required once you’ve got the skills! Pretty sweet!

If you’re completely normal, you may be thinking at this point that dancing is so intimidating and way too hard. You could never get good enough to where girls actually wanted to dance with you, right? Wrong! In fact, no good dancer was ever born knowing how to dance, so do yourself a favor and remove the notion that knowing how to dance is a gift from above. You can learn to Country dance, Latin dance or Swing dance with the best of them, with some time and effort on your part.

So where do you begin? After training thousands of confident social dancers over the last two decades, here are a few tips that will get you on the right track:

1. Be yourself. When learning to dance, find a style that suits your personality. For example, if you absolutely cannot stand Country music, don’t waste your time learning to Two Step or Country Swing dance. Start with something that excites you so that you’ll be sure to stick with it. For those of you who love Hip Hop, Salsa dancing is super-fun to do to Hip Hop music. In fact, so is the West Coast Swing.

On another note, you may love dramatic music that goes well with the Argentine Tango, or upbeat, feel-good music that is best paired with Swing dancing. With so many social dance styles to explore, why settle?

2. Take Private Dance Lessons. If you take no other bit of advice, please walk away with this: the fastest way to becoming a great social dancer is through Private Dance Instruction. Sure, you can learn from videos, books and even free group classes in the bars, but the shortest way to get the best results is by making the investment in yourself with Private Lessons.

In Private Dance Lessons, you will get so much more than just patterns and moves. At a quality dance studio, you should also receive leading tips that will make you successful on any dance floor. Now that alone is worth it’s weight in gold.

3. Keep your lessons close together. Now that you realize that Private Dance Lessons are so important, come often to your lessons to get optimal results. There’s no way that you’re going to rock it on that dance floor coming to your Swing dance lessons just once a week. While outside practice will eventually be important, right now you need time with your instructor getting the fundamentals down pat over and over again.

This March, create your own “luck” by discovering a hobby that nearly every woman loves. Invest in yourself and have a blast learning to dance.  Arizona residents can come visit us at Dance FX Studios in the Phoenix East Valley. We would love to give you the tools needed to shine on any dance floor!
