How is 2014 going for you so far?
I’ve heard from many of you that you are stuck inside and unable to get to the studio due to the bad weather. I know how that is.
But, there is no need to despair!
This is the perfect time to further your dance training in other ways.
3 Ways to Improve Your Dance Technique at Home
1. Review your notes.
You know all of those notes you’ve been keeping after class? Well, now is the perfect time to review all of them.
You may see some important things that you completely forgot about.
If not, you’ll still be able to review some basics and think about how far you’ve come with your dance since you wrote the notes in the first place!
Yes, even though you are snowed in, that’s no reason to avoid practicing.
Go over arm and feet placements in front of a mirror.
Stretch and work your feet.
And if you have room, practice the turns and movements that need improvement.
3. Think about dance.
It may sound silly, but if you think about how you want a particular dance move to look, it will actually help you become a better dancer.
Review specific choreography and techniques in your head. Picture yourself doing them perfectly. Then, when you get back to the studio, use those positive thoughts when you actually dance!
Snow Days Do Not Mean No Dance Days.
When the weather is horrible outside, and you can’t get to the studio, be creative.
There are still many ways you can improve you’re dancing at home.
Review notes. Stretch and practice as much as possible in the space you have available. And think about doing your dance movements the correct way.
This way, you’ll keep your body and mind in shape. And when the snow clears, you’ll be ready to hit the dance floor!
