Odds and Ends for this week's dance action in Tidewater

Hello Dancers... From our Weekly Newsletter

***********************************

Hello Dancers,

Judy and I are not hosting a Sunday dance this Mother's Day.

The Country Two-Step class prior to our last dance was great. It was good to be teaching on solid ground again. The West Coast Swing was not a difficult as I thought it would be but Country Two Step is much more comfortable. We will continue with the Two Step for the rest of the month. Thanks once again to the many dancers who visit with us each week. For those of you who have never been please come out one week. The dancers who attend are very friendly and helpful.

**********************************

Dance tip of the week.

Progression of difficulty...

In response to questions about "What is an easy dance to learn?" and "Are there any dances that are impossible for and older couple to learn?"

We have wrote before on how some dances are more difficult to learn than others. We refrain from writing that any particular dance is impossible to learn. Being a little on the optimistic side leads us to think that all endeavors are possible. But, also being practical leads us to believe that some dances just may be just beyond our reach.

Anyway, dancing like many other skills, requires a person to acquire those skills through both instruction and practice. Instruction can come from almost any source. Videos, books, observing others, group lessons and private lessons are sources that many of us utilize. Practice is a little more basic and can only be had in one form.

I remember when first learned to ride a tricycle. Having to not worry to much about balancing left me to only be concerned with moving and steering. It only took some basic instruction and I was off. The security of three wheels kept me on balance.

I also remember a few year later when I got my first bicycle. Dad was not devoted to the training wheel theory so he got his exercise running behind me keeping the bike balanced. It took several tries and several falls but I finally mastered the balancing act. Bigger bikes and larger wheels were mastered with practice and soon I could claim to not have to think about the technique of balance.

I never tried the next step which is a unicycle. I guess with age came the understanding that falling hurt more and in this instance, the pain was not worth the gain.

To get back on subject, dancing should be approached like the above analogy. If you want to learn a dance, start with the easy stuff first and master it. Then move ahead. If you want to learn Latin start with Rumba before you try Cha-Cha. If you are a non-dancer take some dance basics classes before getting into an advanced West Coast Swing class. Learn to lead the simple moves well before trying that fancy "tie her in a knot" move.

And, practice, practice, practice.... It might not make perfect but it will make better! And, are there any dances impossible for someone older? Why not try out some basic classes and if you can enjoy the dance then it's not impossible.
