Social or Competitive Dancing?

There has been some confusion about the difference between social dancing and competitive dancing. While both are considered “ballroom” dancing, there are differences between the two, and today we are going to clear up some of that confusion by comparing both dances.

Let’s begin with social dancing. What exactly is it? Social dancing is co-operative, rather than competitive. It’s for the majority of people who want to be able to dance at clubs, weddings, or any social occasion. It involves being sociable and the ability to dance with a variety of partners. Social dancing can include a variety of dances, such as Latin, swing, tango, and Country

On a social dance floor, there are usually quite a few more people than on the competitive floor, so you need to be more compact in your moves. The leader is responsible for guiding their partner in the appropriate steps. They need to be aware of the people and space around them, in order to be able to maneuver around the dance floor. So, ladies, relax and let him lead the way! For followers, they also must be aware of who is around at all times and ensure that they are moving enough to get a good connection with their partner.

At Dance FX Studios, we teach our students how to be great leaders and followers, so that they can have a great connection with anyone on the dance floor. One of the most important things on the dance floor is eye contact- you must always be looking at your partner.  Yes, leaders may need to quickly look to check for space when performing moves, but as much as possible this dance is about you and your partner – not who’s watching you.  What a great way to be able to shut out the rest of the world and just focus on each other!

Social dancing is extremely beneficial and includes the body, mind, spirit, and emotion. It is personal, intimate, and communicative. It includes multiple generations and dancers with various degrees of skill and experience, unlike competitive dancing which is restricted to professionals and performers, and performed before avid spectators. So, as you can see, social dancing is definitely the way to go for the majority of us. Let Dance FX Studios turn you into confident and competent social dancers!

Competitive dancing, while still a partnership, involves participants performing dances of several, approved dance styles before a group of judges and an audience. They are judged on their speed, elegance, body action, and dramatic movements. It really does require a lot of dedication since they may spend many months practicing dances and developing dance routines.

In a dance competition, participants display and compare their skills with other dancers of the same level. It’s fascinating to watch the various couples competing, but where’s the fun for you? And, not too sure where or when someone would actually be doing this at a local club, an upcoming wedding, or any other social occasion. Wouldn’t you and your partner rather be the ones doing the dancing, instead of watching it? 

Competitive dancers must also be extremely fit because this can be very physically demanding. They must continuously train to maintain and improve their technique, balance, strength and flexibility. It’s an excellent way to stay in shape, but certainly not everyone’s cup of tea!

Now that you have a better idea of what social dancing can offer, why not try it for yourself? Dance FX Studios is available for private dance lessons Monday-Friday, from 12-8 pm and Saturdays, 11 am-4 pm. We also offer group classes in the evenings throughout the week and Zumba®fitness classes 3 times a week.  Any questions? Give us a call at 480.968.6177 or email us at info@dancefxstudios.com.

Dance FX Studios is just minutes away from Phoenix, Scottsdale, Tempe, Chandler, and Gilbert. You can find us at 1859 W. Guadalupe Rd, in Mesa, AZ, on the SE corner of Guadalupe and Dobson.  We would love the opportunity to show you how we can make a positive difference in the lives of our students. Come and see how we can turn people who were previously sitting on the sidelines watching others dance into dancers themselves!

To touch, to move, to inspire. This is the true gift of dance. - Aubrey Lynch

Getting Married? Let's Dance!

Congratulations! Your wedding day is just around the corner. The wedding party is all set, flowers are ordered, the photographer is booked, and the caterers are good to go. You feel like something is missing, but can’t put your finger on it. You start to imagine about how nice it will be once you’re finally at the reception, kicking back and having a great time. And then it hits you- you are totally unprepared for you first dance! Oh no, what to do?

OK, take a deep breath and relax. You can do this- you just need to know what your options are, how soon you need to get started, and where to go for assistance. What do you do for your first dance?

Dance FX Studios has choreographed thousands of first dances for a variety of brides and grooms. To begin, we offer an hour-long wedding dance consultation for only $20, which, in addition to dancing, also includes a getting to know you session and determining your vision for the first dance.  We will also assist you with important details like finding a song that is just right for the two of you.

Calling All Singles!

You’re single, you go to work every day, come home watch TV, take care of some things around the house, and maybe run some errands. Life is good, but you feel like something is missing. Someone recently asked you “What do you do for fun?”, and you were stumped. Your first thought was “fun- what’s that? What do I do for fun anymore?” 

You go out with friends at times, but it seems like it’s always the same old thing you’ve done so many times before. You’re on the go most of the time checking off your “to do” list and spending time helping out others, but what about yourself? Don’t you deserve more? You bet you do! You want to do something that you will really enjoy and at the same time, is something that is also beneficial.

At Dance FX Studios we have a great alternative to the usual activities that you may not have thought about- social dancing. The social dances we teach include salsaCountryswing, and Argentine tango. Keep in mind, social dancing is not the same as “Dancing with the Stars”- that is strictly competitive dancing, which is great for the small minority of people who actually enter dance competitions, but for the rest of us- not so much. Social dancing is for the majority of people who want to dance in the real world, such as clubs, weddings, parties, any occasion where people want to have fun and look good on the dance floor with any partner. 

Dancing is a great way for people of all ages and physical abilities to get fit and stay in shape. Simply put, dancing just doesn't feel like exercise but it actually offers a total body workout, using all of the major muscle groups and providing heart-healthy benefits. Along with keeping muscles toned, dancing burns body fat, increases flexibility, balance and coordination, and strengthens bones. Private dance lessons are a perfect way to get started. Your lessons are customized for your learning speed and capacity, enabling you to reach your dancing goals in the shortest amount of time possible. So, before you know it, you’ll be shaping up, feeling good, and looking awesome out there on any dance floor!

As a low pressure way to meet others, social dancing is an excellent way for people to get acquainted. At Dance FX Studios, taking a single’s group dance class is wonderful way to connect and learn with other students. We offer 4-week group classes for swing, Latin, and country. Each week, students are rotated throughout the class, providing the opportunity to dance and relate with a variety of partners. And who knows, you may make a new friend to go out dancing with while you both try out your new, fancy footwork.

OK, maybe you’re feeling a little shy and lack confidence in yourself and your abilities. Studies have shown that social dancing contributes to high self-esteem and a positive outlook. It can increase poise and build social skills. Because physical activity reduces stress and tension, regular dancing gives an overall sense of well-being.  At Dance FX Studios, we have seen a number of students who were insecure and quick to criticize everything they do, progress into outgoing, happy, and secure new people. It is so rewarding and inspirational to actually witness this metamorphosis!

Well, now that you know some of the benefits that social dancing can offer for singles, are you ready to get started? Dance FX Studios is available for lessons Monday-Friday, from 12-8 pm and Saturdays, from 11 am-4 pm. We are centrally located in the East Valley, just outside of Phoenix and Scottsdale, at 1859 W. Guadalupe Rd, in Mesa, AZ, close to Gilbert, Tempe, and Chandler, AZ. Give us a call to schedule your private dance lessons or to enroll in one of our group dance classes, at 480.968.6177. We look forward to meeting you soon!

Fun and Fitness with Zumba!

There are a lot of ways to get healthy and into shape these days. Going to the gym, playing sports, swimming, and jogging are some of the options available. You may not be aware that there is another alternative that is fun and exhilarating! Zumba®Fitness is a dance-fitness class that incorporates great music, exciting dances such as salsa, cha-cha, tango, belly dancing, and merengue along with fun, easy-to-learn routines that are choreographed all into one workout. It’s an exercise that you actually look forward to doing!

You’re probably wondering if Zumba® Fitness is something that you’re able to do while also being inspired enough to stick with it. If you’re looking for an exercise with lots of energy, stimulating music, as well as learning new dance moves, then Zumba may be just the ticket! Not only is it enjoyable and invigorating to do, but you’ll be amazed at the results you can achieve when you incorporate this into your routine. You’ll be getting into shape and will also be releasing stress and tension, increasing your cardio workout, and improving muscle tone. Whatever your reason for taking a Zumba class, you will find it’s therapy for the mind, body and soul! 

In addition to regular Zumba® Fitness classes, there is also Zumba Toning which targets the abs, thighs, arms, and other muscles throughout the body and adds body sculpting and cardio, using toning sticks. Zumba Sentao is another option utilizing a chair workout that focuses on using body weight to strengthen and tone the body.

Dance FX Studios, located in Mesa AZ and known for our private dance lessons and group dance classes, also offers Zumba® Fitness classes 3 times a week. Our sprung wood floors are great for Zumba, since they absorb shocks, giving it a softer feel. Sprung floors are considered the best choice for dancing, indoor sports, and physical education. They also enhance your performance and significantly reduce injuries.

Classes are available Mondays and Wednesdays from 6-7 pm and on Saturdays from 10-11 am. Zumba Toning classes are offered the last Wednesday of each month and Zumba Sentao takes place on the second Monday of each month. There are no class levels in our Zumba classes. Beginners are always welcome to join in at any time as you take things at your own pace while learning.

Monday night classes at Dance FX Studios are taught by Frankie Valenzuela. He discovered Zumba while at the gym and from that moment he was hooked! He promptly took the next step to become certified and began teaching Zumba. It has been the most rewarding time in his life as he is able to share his passion for music and dance with his students.

Kisha Klein leads our Wednesday night classes. She loves music and dancing and considers both a perfect way to relax, have fun, and relieve stress. Once she discovered Zumba and realized how much she loved it, she got licensed to teach. It’s the perfect outlet for her high energy and she incorporates a lot of fitness moves in her choreography, so don’t be surprised if you start to feel like you have abs or buns of steel! 

Dance FX Studios Saturday morning Zumba classes are taught by Maggie Colecchia. She had been overweight and for health reasons, devoted an entire year to getting fit and eating better. She attributes maintaining her healthy weight to a lifestyle that involves cardio work, weight training, and dance, which is what led her to Zumba. She really enjoys helping others to achieve their healthy goals.
New to Zumba® Fitness? Dance FX Studios has an incredible special for newcomers- 5 classes for only $25. What an awesome way to get started! Not only are you going to get into shape and be healthier, but at such a low cost, it really is an incentive to do this for yourself. Feel free to drop into any of our regular Zumba classes to give it a try. For Zumba Sentao and Zumba Toning, class size is limited so registration is required prior to each class. 

Dance FX Studios is open Monday-Friday, from 12-8 pm and Saturdays, from 11 am-4 pm. You can find us at 1859 W Guadalupe Rd, at the corner of Guadalupe and Dobson, in Mesa, AZ.  And don’t forget about our social dance lessons which include the Argentine tango, swing, Latin, and country. For additional information please give us a call at 480.968.6177.

We hope to see you in class!

Healing Through Dancing

These days, most people tend to lead their lives under constant pressure and tension from work, family, friends and the rest of the world. We get so wrapped up with deadlines, having so much to do and trying to do it all, that we start to burn out and lose focus. On top of this, many have personal issues to deal with, such as loss of work, self-esteem, loss of a loved one, gaining weight, etc., which can ultimately lead to depression. It’s time to take action and find something that is going to positively affect you in a variety of ways. 

You know you need to take care of yourself, but are not sure what to do to help to get back to a healthy, more balanced life. If you’re feeling tense or stressed out, you might want to grab a partner, turn up the music, and tango! Ballroom, Latin, Country or Swing dancing is one of the greatest ways which can really brighten one’s stressful life. Studies have shown that dancing can help to alleviate stress and to lighten your load.

Many times when someone decides to start any form of exercise they rarely consider the fun factor that it can involve. This is something really important to consider when making the decision to take hold of your life and make changes that are beneficial in various ways. Think about it- if you enjoy what you’re doing, then the results will be so much better and much more effective. So whether you’d like to learn swing dancing or want to spice up your life with salsa dance lessons, why not give dancing a try? We tend to be so busy taking care of everyone else that we neglect to treat ourselves and dancing can be just the way to give back to YOU.

Social dancing is therapeutic to your health more than just physically. It also heals you mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Did you know that dancing elevates our mood by raising our endorphin levels? This is what allows us to heal from stress and depression, two of our immune system’s biggest enemies. It also helps to establish our self-confidence and self-discipline, as well as improving the harmony between the mind and body, giving us a sense of well-being. 

Maybe you’ve just lost a loved one and now you are feeling lost. You’re overwhelmed with grief and are finding it hard to do anything. Dancing can really help to lift your spirits, according to a study that tested the effects of dancing on those with depression. Whether it’s Country dancing or the Argentine tango, the abundant flow of mood-improving chemicals that dancing releases means that kicking up your heels can really help to rejuvenate you. Just one dance session can eliminate depression, even more so than vigorous exercise or listening to upbeat music. Dancing leads to a decrease in stress and creates stronger social bonds, key factors in your overall health. How awesome that something so beneficial is also so enjoyable. 

Remember when you used to be so confident and your self-esteem was through the roof? But now, due to issues at work- you didn’t get that raise you expected, your hours have been cut, you’re no longer the “go to” person, now you’ve lost confidence in your abilities. Maybe your relationship or marriage has ended and you’re convinced that it’s all your fault- you feel you’re no longer desirable, you didn’t do enough, or you feel you’re not a spring chicken anymore and can’t compete with the younger generation. Now, there goes your self-esteem and because of this, you are finding it hard to keep going- you’ve lost your incentive to get up in the morning, socialize, try new things. No worries, there is hope! Got the blues? It just might be the perfect time to get out there and dance!

Never danced before? That’s OK! If you live in the East Valley of Phoenix, try dance lessons at Dance FX Studios in Mesa, AZ- you’ll be amazed at how healing this can be for anyone. How about trying out an introductory private dance lesson or joining a group dance class? With private lessons, you will be able to have one-on-one lessons with an instructor who will tailor your lessons just for you, at your rate of learning and with the types of dance (s) you prefer.
Group dance classes also provide many opportunities to meet other people. Studies have shown that dancing can contribute to high self-esteem and a positive outlook. It can increase self-confidence and build social skills. Dancing is recreational and entertaining. It creates a social life providing an opportunity to make new friends, to help you to grow, and makes you want to laugh. Isn’t that a great incentive to get out on the dance floor?
Little by little you will find yourself connecting with someone again, laughing, having fun, and before you know it, you start to feel like your old self again, or maybe a totally new and improved you!

We have been proud to witness first-hand the benefits that taking dance lessons has on our students over the past 12 years. Those with low self-esteem and lack of confidence have bloomed into self-assured and outgoing individuals. Some were out of shape or overweight and we’ve witnessed them getting slimmer, losing anywhere from 10-40 pounds and now feeling so stoked! Not to mention several who were sad and grief stricken, who are now happy, active, and involved in life again. Words just can’t express how rewarding it is to see so many people go through this metamorphosis.

OK, now you’re ready to get going, but not sure where to go to get started. Dance FX Studios is exactly what you need! We created the first social dance studio for adults and offer customized programs and progressive group classes. We teach dancing that you will actually use in the real world and are all about having a great time while you learn, so our techniques are a little out of the ordinary, yet effective.

Dance FX Studios is located at 1859 W Guadalupe Rd, in Mesa, AZ. We’re just minutes away from Scottsdale, Phoenix, Gilbert, Tempe, and Chandler. Please give us a call at 480.968.6177 for more information and to get started on your journey to dancing.

Become a Great Social Dancer with Private Dance Lessons

You just received an invitation to a wedding and are really excited about going. Only one problem- you don’t know how to dance! Oh no- you really want to go, but you just can’t face sitting on the sidelines again while everyone else is out there boogying. You’ve made the decision that now is the time to do something about it, but you’re not quite sure how or where to begin.

Social dance lessons are the perfect solution. Learning to social dance will enable anyone to become comfortable at parties, on cruises, in the clubs or at any special event. Whether it’s Latin, Swing, Country, or Argentine tango, you can learn to dance and have fun while doing so!

To get the maximum benefits in learning to social dance, private lessons are your best bet. Private dance lessons will allow you to get on the fast track to becoming a great social dancer. Unlike group dance classes, with private lessons you will receive personalized attention based on your needs and rate of learning. Working one-on-one with an instructor allows you to customize your lessons, so you can learn the dances that you are interested in, rather than your instructor making that decision for you.

Private dance lessons give you the opportunity to choose the amount of dances and dance styles you want to learn. You may decide you want to focus on just Country dances, since you know that you and your friends will only be going out Country dancing. Maybe you’re not sure which dance is best for your needs, so you want to learn 2-3 different types of dances. Not a problem, these are your lessons and you make that decision. 

You have a really busy schedule and need some flexibility with your dance lesson schedule. That’s the beauty of taking private dance lessons. From lesson to lesson, you chose which days and times that work best for you. Some weeks, it may be the same time for each lesson, other times you need a variety of options. How nice to be able to have your lessons when it’s convenient for you and your schedule!

Another reason for learning to social dance with private lessons is that whether you’re a couple or a single person, you will reap the benefits. For couples, spending time dancing together will help to develop your partnership on a deeper level.  How wonderful that taking private dance lessons will not only make you an awesome dancer, it will also bring the two of you closer, especially when you don’t have the chance to do many things together as a couple. For singles, with one-on-one lessons, you will be dancing directly with your instructor. He/she will whip you into shape in no time and prepare you to have a great connection with anyone.  And in doing so, will help you to gain the confidence you may need for the next time you go out dancing or at your next special event.

Now you just need to find the right place to take private dance lessons for social dancing. Dance FX Studios in Mesa, Arizona is THE place to go. Whether you want to learn Latin, Swing, Argentine tango, or Country dancing, we can definitely get you there. We know that learning to dance can be a little intimidating so we are here to ease your fears and supply you with the skills needed to shine on the dance floor. At Dance FX Studios, you will learn the key concepts and elements needed to master any social dance floor with confidence. It’s not just about memorizing foot patterns and trying to figure out the rest. We provide you with the tools needed to truly enjoy social dancing. Before long, you will be comfortable and self-assured dancing anywhere from nightclubs to weddings.

To get you started, we recommend you take advantage of our Introductory Offer. Our Introductory Offer for private dance lessons is one hour in length and is just $40 total (per couple or single). One hour is all we need to show you how exciting it can be to learn to dance! In your introductory lesson, you’ll have the opportunity to sample several popular social dances of your choice.  You will also learn about partner connection, how to communicate on the dance floor, and other useful tips to prepare you for any occasion.

Dance FX Studios is conveniently located at 1859 W Guadalupe Rd, in Mesa, AZ. We are available for private dance lessons Monday-Friday, from 12-8 and Saturdays, from 11-4. If you want to prepare for that wedding or next night out on the town, don’t wait until the last minute to get started. The sooner you begin, the sooner you’re on your way to becoming a skillful, confident, and amazing social dancer!
