Importance of Practice
You are given time in class to practice the steps being taught with and without music. Take advantage of this time, especially if you are waiting to change partners.
Class time is mainly for review and moving forward. The Asheville Ballroom & Dance Centre has monthly dance parties and we encourage all our students to come and practice their dance steps.
The dancers that seem to progress the fastest are the ones that practice outside of class. This helps the dance student retain the information better and progress faster.
Dancing is a skill. Practice is how you get better.
Practice in class and at home, even if you do not have a partner.
Do not try to avoid your partner’s feet, and do not look down. Your feet follow your body and will take care of themselves. Think about it, you do not look down when you walk.
