Previously, we discussed the benefits of learning to social dance and focused specifically on Latin dancing. Latin dancing is fiery and exhilarating, so wouldn’t you love to be able to get out on the dance floor and sizzle? Think about how impressive you will look and how great you’ll feel being able to grab a partner and get out there dancing!
At Dance FX Studios, in Mesa, AZ, close to Phoenix and Scottsdale,we can help you to achieve that goal with private dance lessons. Private lessons are the most effective way to turn inexperienced dancers into skillful and self-assured leaders and followers. The lessons will be focused on just you or just you and your partner, since each lesson is based on your learning capabilities and on the specific dances you choose to learn. Private dance lessons are available Monday-Friday, from 12-8 pm and Saturdays, from 11 am-4 pm, so there is a lot of flexibility scheduling your lessons.
Today, we’re going to cover a couple more styles of Latin dances- Salsa and Cha-cha. These social dances are very popular all over the world and if you like to travel you will find there are opportunities to dance in almost every major city around the world. Even if you visit a country where you don't speak the language, these dances can serve as a universal language that bridges any communication gap.
OK, so let’s begin with Salsa dance lessons, available at Dance FX Studios, in the Phoenix, AZ area. What makes Salsa dancing so cool that it’s hot? Aside from the chance to connect in an intimate and seductive way with others on the dance floor, Salsa dancing opens you up to explore a new “sassy” you, allowing growing room for self-expression and a freedom. How many other activities can do that for you?
Surprisingly, Salsa dancing will help with your balance and coordination, due to the constant shifting of weight and other movements associated with Salsa dancing. Previously rigid or even awkward movements will be more fluid and flow gracefully with the help of the quick changes in body positioning done in Salsa dancing. So, if you feel a little uneasy on the dance floor, learning this particular dance will help to get you on the track to being a more graceful dancer.
Salsa dancing can help make you feel more confident about yourself and with your self-expression. The sensuality that comes from the energetic and even sexy movements that are associated with Salsa dancing will become apparent in your performance as well. It will bring out the warmth and passion in you, so once you get out on the dance floor, you’ll be amazed at how this really affects your dancing. So, why not put some pep in your step with Salsa dance lessons!
The Cha-cha is an energetic and sexy dance that shares a lot of similarities with Salsa and can be danced to a variety of different kinds of music. The Cha-cha prevails as a popular social dance due to its appealing mix of breezy movements and smoldering sensuality. It’s a flirtatious dance that encourages you and your partner to only have eyes for each other. In this fast paced world where everyone seems too busy for anything, how wonderful to be able to slow it down and enjoy spending some intimate time together.
What sets the Cha-cha apart from other dances is the Cuban hip motion. This movement involves alternating the hips up and down by bending one leg and straightening the other. It may not sound very smooth, but when you see or experience it, the Cha-cha is something that is quite alluring and sexy!
The Cha-cha is a dance that has never gone out of style. It’s always a favorite at weddings due to its versatility with various genres of music. In fact, you can Cha-cha to Country dance music, oldies, and Hip Hop, as well as other Latin styles. So, even if Latin music isn’t your favorite, there is no reason not to Cha-cha! This dance is very easy to learn, and, once you learn the basic pattern, can be done in either a crowded or spacious room.
