Do you wanna dance?
Do you want to learn how to dance? Perhaps you are a dancing neophyte and avoid dance floors at all costs. Wondering how long it will take you to become skillful on the dance floor once you start grooving to the beat?
There are many factors to consider when figuring out how long it may take you to go from two left feet to twinkle toes. Let’s explore them!
What is a “good” dancer?
Everyone has their own definition of what a good dancer is. Does that mean you exude confidence and sex appeal on the dance floor? Or maybe it’s that your technique is top notch. Becoming a “good” dancer largely depends on what your goals are. Being attractive with the ladies can happen quickly, but it will probably take a little bit longer to be a good leader for your partner in ballroom dancing.
How motivated are you?
How motivated you are to learn how to dance can keep you coming back for more. Is there an event you are preparing for where you want to show off your new moves? Do you have a friend who wants to take lessons with you? Are you wanting to relieve stress or lose a few pounds by dancing? The larger your goals are, the more likely you are to stick with them and make fast progress.
Can you commit?
Like anything in life, the more you practice something, the quicker you’ll pick it up. Coming to a dance lesson once in awhile will give you some great skills but practicing at home, doing the 30-day dance challenge and even dancing at nightclubs will all help you reach your goals quicker.
A student can usually only be as good as their teacher. Luckily, we have some of the best dance instructors at Arthur Murray New Jersey. Our instructors are passionate about helping others dance and give each student the right attention to help them reach their goals. Whether you are a beginner or seasoned dancer, we love helping teach people how to dance for fun and self improvement!
Talent and Ability
Some people will just naturally pick things up with ease. This is true in sports, arts, and dance. So talent and ability play a factor in how quickly you will learn to dance, but they are not the most important factors.
Here at Arthur Murray, we have taught hundreds of students who have sworn they can’t dance. But after a little instruction and a lot of fun, they’re on their way to dance greatness.
Whatever you do, don’t let the belief that you don’t have a natural dance talent hold you back. You may discover skills that you never thought you had!
So how long?
It depends on everything mentioned above and each person will be different. But we promise that if you try out a dance package at Arthur Murray, we’ll make sure to design your dance lessons geared toward reaching your specific goals.
Some people will go from newbie to proficient dancer in two to six months. And in that process you’re guaranteed to make new friends, improve your health, and have fun on a new adventure!!
