The 8 Secrets to Ballroom Success
Are you looking to take ballroom dance in Edmonton? Whether you are total beginner or looking to wow your wedding guests with a memorable first dance, we have 8 secrets to making your experience with ballroom dance a success.
1. Schedule Early
The best way to get the class times you want are to book them in advance
2. Schedule Often
The more private lessons and group classes you attend the faster you will progress. Like anything else, dancing well takes time and repetition.
3. Be Patient
No one learns to dance overnight and your teacher doesn’t expect you to remember everything. People learn by making mistakes.
4. Prepare for Events Early
Let your teachers know as soon as you have an event to get ready for (even if it is months away.) Your teacher has the best idea of how long it will take you to “knock their socks off.” If it is a studio event, get it ready so you are not scrambling for lesson time the week before.
A spotlight is the best way to take your routine for a trial run before an event. It ensures you are prepared and confident in the routine as well as allowing you to shake off some of the nerves before the big performance. A spotlight doesn’t have to be a routine; get up and show us what you’re working on.
6. Bring Your Friends
Everything is more fun when it is shared and the studio parties and groups are a great time to meet up with people that you don’t see as often as you would like.
7. Get Outside Your Comfort Zone!
The best way to gain confidence and grow as a person is to do something that scares you. We have many events at the studio to help you reach new heights in your dancing. When you feel nervous or scared, challenge yourself, you never know how much you can accomplish!
Enjoy the little things, because one day you will look back and realize they were the big things.
