I hope you have been having a good time in class of late and at the socials we’ve been to. Certainly the Saturday night event was fun. It was a great band, great songs to dance to, and a great group of us who went.
It was also the first outing for a couple of our students. It’s always a big milestone when students can say words to the effect of “last night we went out dancing.”
And that is the point of Destine Dance. It is to help you and others learn dance so you can enjoy it the way it was originally meant to be enjoyed – as a fun way of being social with other people. That’s why it is also called ‘social dancing’.
Once you can use dance as a social tool, you are in that happy place where you simply keep on getting better so you can enjoy it more and more.
Private classes are easily the best way to get to that point fastest. And they allow you other avenues of enjoyment – like a sense of achievement and a chance to perform through awards. But group lessons are still excellent for the social side.
So next time you are in a group lesson, remember two things:
That means you need to find that balance between a focus on yourself and a focus on your partners to get ideal cooperation. Cooperation that allows everyone to learn for betterment and experience the social aspect. Both of which are essential to good partner dance.
So when you are in the next group class, think about being social and working with your partner so you can both be better dancers.
If you have been going to group classes of late, then you likely know that this week is the last week of the current cycle. That means this is the week you get to enjoy most what you have learned in these styles:
Next week we start a new cycle:
If you have been looking to jump into a cycle, then lock in next week. And if you have been with us for the current cycle, then you know this is a chance to learn another group of dances so you can dance them socially as well – and simply improve your overall dance ability.
See you on the dance floor
