Do you ever feel embarrassed at being the weird one in the group during a party just because you are not confident to dance? It is not a good place to be because you will fringe at the mention of the word party and start ignoring invitation just because you want to avoid the embarrassment. You should not let this problem weigh you down because dancing can easily be learnt by anyone. All you need is gain the confidence and enjoy the music without trying so hard. If you want to watch the night fade away faster than is the norm, take time to grasp a few tips here.
Bob Your Head
Follow the beat in your head and give it a move as grasp it. It is okay to count the measures as you give a little swing or bob to your head. Listen to the drums or bass to catch the rhythm. This will help you learn how to focus to music.
Shift your Weight
Adjust your feet so all you weight is carried on one foot. You may lift the other foot to ensure it is free. At the count of say; 1 and 3; shift your weight to the other foot as you focus on the counts. When you can do this comfortably, try shifting on every count until you get the hang of it. Keep your legs loose by slightly tilting your knees. Add a little of a bounce in your shifts as you make the counts. You may exaggerate the bounces, as you feel freer to enjoy the moves.
After you notice comfort in the shifts, begin to move the feet further apart. Begin with slight distances of a few inches as you increase gradually. Avoid raising the foot up as it should be as close to the ground as possible.
Add some Hip Action
Move your hips to the rhythm to add style to the movement. Begin by moving it slightly to the direction of the foot movement. Continue twisting your body slightly to add flair to the movement.
Move the Arms
When you are comfortable enough (and this may take you time to learn) you may move your arms or snap your fingers.
At this moment, you will be flexible enough to adjust to other styles of dancing. It is the basic move that helps you keep up rhythm and all the other styles can be built from this single dancing move.
First you need to realize that dancing in its basic form, is an expression of emotion, release of energy, and delight in body movement. In summary, you need to get the connection and involvement with the moves beyond grasping them. Take note of the impulse because it can be channeled by performers and spread through the audience. Allow yourself to be carried away with the powerful impulse without thinking too much or trying too hard. If you find the connection, nothing will stop you from dancing.
