Hi I`m Mike
If you are young, or if you are old learn to dance, everyone must dance.
I have been dancing, maybe everyone will say jokingly, for the last twelve years.
Although you can start at any age I wish I had started when I was younger.
Where have the years gone. I have enjoyed my life, though I wonder what a difference it would have made to me, if I could have danced.
The times I would sit down and watch, Strictly Come Dancing and Dancing With The Stars, I loved the ability of the contestants, how they improved, week by week and I always envied them.
I am not up to their standard, but it feels good to even have the ability to dance a few of the sequences, and move someone around with me.
The objective of this website is to encourage people to learn to dance.
If you don’t dance now, give it a go. Try a basic course, you will enjoy it.
There should be a club or class near to you. If not there are DVD,s available, some on this site, that I use to remind me of moves I’ve maybe forgotten, or to pick up some of the finer points.
If there are no clubs around, a group of you interested people could start your own, maybe with the help of a dancer, or just a practical person, with the aid of a DVD.
There will always be someone who has more ability than most, to guide others.
Also it is a reason to get together for a social occasion, meet people and learn to dance.
I have not tried all types of dance, but I love Modern Jive, this is generally an easy dance, with simple footwork.
The format is normally a beginners class, whereby a man and a woman practice a few given moves, then one or other of you move along to the next person, every minute or so, for around three quarters of an hour.
You then take a break, with some freestyle for those that want to.
Next an intermediate class, for the ones with a little more experience. The beginners will do a review class at this time.
After this everyone that wants to, including the beginners dance freestyle, for the rest of the evening.
A perfect way to end an evening of dance.
If you are really interested in learning to dance, with the intention of becoming a professional, you do need to put in a lot of work.
Is it work ? If you have a natural aptitude it will not feel like hard work.
So dancing, together with the fun, laughter and fitness benefit. It has to be one of the best ways of enjoying yourself, that I know.
Whatever style you like, do try. If you have two left feet, the dance programme works on that too.
Don’t leave it and wish you had started earlier, the time to start is now, there are more benefits than you know.
Learn to dance, a beginners course is 4 to 6 weeks, you will be dancing in that time.
Go on a dancing weekend, there are several to choose from, with more being added all the time. You will soon be dancing, with many classes throughout the weekend.
There is also the social side, for even more fun while you are away.
If you get really keen there are holidays and cruises. The ultimate reason to indulge yourself and improve your dancing.
