How to dance is a major question that comes in the minds of people who are new to public dancing. You may be good at dancing alone in your room as a mood elevator or fat burner, but when it comes to doing it socially, you should know the basics. There are different types of dances, that are performed on different occasions.
When you are dancing with a partner, the steps and synchronization comes into play; and when you are giving a public performance, the practice and timings are necessary to make a good impression.
Make sure you are comfortable in what you decide to wear. Try to use your dress during practice sessions. This will make you comfortable with the dress, and will also provide you with the feel of final performance.
When you are asked for dance, go ahead and give a jolly expression. Also make sure that you dance with everybody in the party, when the people are known to you. This will also give you a good response from social side. Make sure you and your partner have a good energy level. You can also take short breaks by dancing slowly, while having a drink in your hand.
When dancing with a partner who is not a good dancer, do not try to show off your skills by letting him or her down. The grace of your dance comes from how the couple performs and hence, try to support your partner. Also do not try to train your partner on the dance floor itself; the audience may not appreciate this.
Dancing is a way of expression and also a social bonding element. It is an art that requires certain rules and code of conduct, unlike other forms of art in which, the artist is free to create anything he likes.
