Ballroom dancing requires a significant amount of strength and energy.

Dance Pizazz announces three tips to help ballroom dancers at all levels improve their technique. According to Tango Rouge Ballroom it does not matter whether a ballroom dancer is seasoned or has just begun ballroom dancing; they will still gain a significant amount of strength and energy by improving their dance technique. Checkout Chris and Jennifer from Dance Pizazz who have see results from working on technique. Finding additional time for strength training or practice can be difficult to fit into an already busy schedule but is important to prioritize to see beenfits.

Tip #1 is for dancers to find ways to slip two or three minute practice sessions into their daily routine. Think about multiple brief opportunities for multi-tasking:

  • During your 2 minute tooth brushing routine, try deep knee bends for building quad strength or standing on the toes to build ankle strength.
  • Good posture and alignment are essential for dancing; practice good posture throughout the day to keep your back muscles stretched in good position.
  • While standing in lines at the bank or grocery store, practice straightening your legs and working on your hip action.
  • Practice Rumba walks when traveling from room to room at home.
  • When watching TV, lie flat on floor, extend both legs and point your toes. While sitting, use hand weight to do bicep curls, dumbbell presses, and small/large circle with arms extended.

Tip #2 is for dancers to combine a series of stretches into their weekly routine. It is the perfect adjunct for ballroom dancers to build bone strength, to manage breathing, increase balance, stamina, agility, and flexibility of the body’s joints and ligaments, and improve and stabilize your posture for dance.

Tip #3 is for dancers to wear the appropriate shoes for ballroom dancing. It will make a huge difference in their enjoyment as well as their progression in dancing. A baseball player would not perform well in street shoes, and ballroom dancers will not perform well in them either. Likewise, bare feet, flip-flops, sneakers, tennis shoes, running shoes, stilettos, platform shoes, boots, slippers, dress shoes, etc., are not appropriate for ballroom dancing classes, and indeed will compromise your efforts to learn ballroom dancing and possibly contribute to physical injury. Proper ballroom dance shoes will provide better balance for turns, pivot, spins and swivels. The suede bottoms will allow for a smooth glide across the floor and prevent slippage. Your entire ballroom dancing experience will be more enjoyable when you dance in proper dance shoes.
