All over the world, in all countries, dance has an important place. Dances impose a style and often reflect a social situation or the history of a country. Immigration for the Argentine tango, black American culture for jazz, all forms of dance have been part of history.
Learning to dance is therefore a way of understanding a country and the history that flows from it. It can be a way to integrate into a country or to get to know the inhabitants of a neighbourhood. But there are so many more benefits to dance.
Learning to dance, whatever the dance, has many benefits for the body and the mind. As a couple, jazz dance, rock, rumba, kizomba classes, all dances require physical effort to stay in shape. During dance training it is essential to warm up and stretch the muscles and work on the heart rate with the effort we make in the classes. Dance is a great way to lose weight and stay active.
Flexibility is a key point in learning to dance. All its characteristics make dance a real sport. Teaching increases creativity because it is also an art, a way of expressing oneself through the body and music.
Improvisation or choreographic creation classes require imagination. As the sessions progress, the dancer's students develop a sense of creativity that can be useful in daily life or at work.
Dance is also a way to free the mind after a long day or week of work. Focusing on dance and freeing the body allows you to go out more relaxed than when you started the class.
Starting dance classes means choosing the right teacher to help you progress, and several criteria come into play. Firstly, the teacher's profile must correspond to the student's expectations and you can ask him/her for his/her qualifications and experience. He or she may have experience as a dancer, teacher or even a choreographer, this does not matter, as the only important thing is that he or she is useful to the student.
Some teachers have a better reputation than others, but the fee is higher. When choosing a dance class, it's up to the teacher to adapt to your skills and what you want. The price of a dance class should be within the possibilities of what the student can spend. The most effective way to do this is to establish a price range to see which teachers fall within this limit.
Before choosing a dance teacher, you should filter the level. It is not necessary to choose a teacher with a lot of experience if you just want to learn a few tricks to dance on your own and have fun. On the other hand, if you want to pursue a career in classical dance, choosing a professional dancer will never be out of place.
To make sure that the student doesn't give up at the first attempt, the teacher should carry out the classes in the place chosen by the student, as having to be going back and forth can be very demotivating. No matter where it is, it can be a dance studio, the most important thing is that it is comfortable and accessible.
Choosing a teacher also means choosing a dance style. Classical dance classes, zumba classes, rock classes, salsa classes, hip hop classes, a teacher who knows how to dance the partner dances doesn't automatically know how to do a catapult jump. To practice several dances and learn a bit of each style, you need to find a versatile teacher. Moreover, whatever the dance style, the teacher must obviously be pedagogical, patient and attentive to his or her students.
We usually ask ourselves this question when we are starting a new activity. Many are afraid to believe that they are too old to be able to perform in dance centres or at a party. However, it is important to know that dance is accessible at any age. Only the exercises will not be the same for children as for adults. It is up to the teacher to adapt his or her classes. Younger children benefit from morning classes. The aim is to teach the youngest ones to discover how to move their body.
However, you can also start dancing as an adult. Although flexibility is not as important as it was at the age of ten, the exercises allow you to get back into the swing of things.
Learning to dance as a self-taught person obviously involves little or no cost. However, taking classes with a teacher, whether in a dance school or in private lessons, requires a financial investment. Hourly rates can be anywhere between $10-$100 depending on the style and level of your class.
If you choose private lessons, the hour will cost on average is around $30. If different criteria are taken into account, such as the discipline being taught (tap dance classes, sports dance classes, tango classes, or salsa classes) and the level at which they are taught.
