ENTRY LEVEL DANCE
1. Choose your dance form
2. Select a studio or teacher that works for your location and schedule.
3. Try out several styles if you can not decide. Some studios have a monthly package to sample all the dance styles.
4. Make the choices that will make dance more fun:
Who are the people you love to be around?
What is the dance music or type of movement that turns you on?
Do you want a group class or private instruction?
Are you drawn to the cutting edge, the local rage, formal dance training, improvisation, or folk and ethnic forms?
Do you want to dance with a partner, alone, or in unison with others?
Do you want to move a little or a lot, fast or slow?
Do you want direct instruction or an exercise format following an instructor?
5. Choose your mentor, an instructor or leader who you feel comfortable learning from.
6. Find a buddy who will encourage you and you can encourage. Classes do not require a partner so you can bring someone with you or find a friend there.
7. Watch television shows and movies to see how others have gone through the process of learning to dance.
8. Encourage boys, brothers, sons, and husbands.
Bring your buddies or mates along with you or practice with them at home. Men and boys are finding the fun of dancing to music. No excuses should keep them from improving their level of fun, coordination, communication, and build their brain while they are at it.
