Do You Need a Partner to Take Ballroom Dance Lessons?
It takes two to tango.
It takes two to waltz.
It takes two for a ballroom dance.
Is this logic stopping you from signing up for a ballroom dance lesson? Most people assume that it’s mandatory to bring a dance partner to the class. So they end up dragging their unwilling partners/friends to it.
Or they fail to show up due to the lack of one. In both cases, they end up missing out on a wonderful experience.
Therefore, most dance instructors encourage students to come on their own. Plus, the benefits of changing your dance partner acts as an added bonus.
Let’s have a look at all the reasons why you’d enjoy this solo dance time:
1. Two’s a Crowd
Ballroom dancing isn’t just about partnership. It’s also about you too. It allows you to enhance your footwork, improve balance and gain confidence. And you also get a workout in the process. All of these things don’t require a partner.
Furthermore, forcing friends/significant others into the mix doesn’t always turn out right. For starters, you spend a lot of time focusing on them than the class. Plus, their reluctance starts to wear off on you too. These are things you can certainly do without.
In short, you can focus better and become more independent sans the partner.
2. Switching Things Up
As the saying goes there’s ‘strength in numbers’. That’s why newcomers often benefit from group sessions and party practices. Firstly, this ensures that they can be paired off with other partner-less students. Moreover, the dance instructors tend to change partners during the class anyways. So bringing in your own partner seems pointless.
The benefits of changing dance partners include:
- Learning how to coordinate with different dance partners
- Picking up a few tips and tricks from novice dancers
- Getting a chance to work with various dance instructors
As a result, this experience will enhance your dancing skills faster.
3. Practice with a Professional
Don’t feel confident enough to face the crowd?
No worries! You can always opt for a private class. This kind of format has its perks too. The most obvious one is the fact that you get quality time with a professional. This gives you a chance to learn important tricks from them without distractions.
It also gives you the opportunity to:
- Learn at your own pace
- Focus on improving your weaknesses
- Have a professional lead you
Let’s Sum It Up…
Stepping into the dance zone alone is the perfect way to build self-confidence. Additionally, it gives you an opportunity to learn and interact with other dancers. Plus, a professional dancer is going to be watching over you at all times.
So long story short, you don’t need to bring your own dance partner!
