Offering Virtual Dance Lessons
Do you want to learn how to dance, but there are a few things holding you back? Maybe you’re worried above COVID-19, you can’t find a babysitter, or you’re a bit shy to come into the studio! Whichever your reason is, don’t let it stop you from enjoying one of the best hobbies that benefits your health, social life, and emotional well-being.
Dancing is proven to be great for your cardiovascular system and nervous system. If you don’t make it to the gym enough, or you are not a fan of the treadmill, this can be a fun hobby to keep you in shape.
Participating in virtual group classes is a wonderful way to connect with others. It can be a chance to meet new people and be part of a community. We offer personal lessons and group classes virtually.
You can learn to dance by yourself, or with a partner. The best part about dancing is you are adding more fun in your life and not letting life challenges hold you back. For more even more benefits to dancing virtually, see below.
The Top 10 Reasons to Learn to Dance
Reason #10. It gets you up and MOVING.
Reason #9. It challenges and grows your brain. Any time you have to innovate and learn in a new way, you build new neural pathways, thereby making you a better learner.
Reason #8. It makes you a more independent dancer. Everyone wants to dance with the best dancers. The best dancers are those who have complete command of their movement, regardless of who they are dancing with.
Reason #7. Your instructors come to you! You can finally dance from the comfort of your own home – even in your pajamas.
Reason #6. Each of your sessions is video recorded and provided to you for your review and practice at your leisure.
Reason #5. Focus and Flow. Learning from a virtual lesson requires 100% focus. Because your teacher is not there to physically move you, you need to move yourself. This requires 100% focus, which promotes a type of meditative state of concentration. Studies have shown that engaging in this type of “flow” increases feelings of calm and happiness.
Reason #4. Musicality. In virtual lessons, you will need to truly hear and understand the beat of the music, and match your movements to the music without your instructor physically doing it for you. This will greatly deepen the feeling and musicality of your dancing.
Reason #3. Repetition. Virtual lessons require more focus on fewer patterns. This will greatly increase your muscle memory and understanding of each pattern and technique.
Reason #2. Virtual lessons keep everyone dancing at a time when we all need it more than ever.
