Are you looking for something fun to do while you are stuck at home? Maybe you have always wanted to try a dance class but held yourself back. When it comes to dancing, there are many benefits for both body and mind. It is also terrifying for many to get to a physical class for the first time. Enter digital dance classes! There are so many unique dance classes online now, and it is the perfect time to try one!
What are the Benefits of Taking Dance Classes Online?
There are many benefits to taking dance classes, such as improved heart and lungs, weight management, and better coordination. These benefits also apply to online dance classes. Online courses also have additional perks, such as being more accessible for your schedule, and they often cost much less than in-person classes.
Where can I find Places to Dance Online?
There are many places you can look for online dance classes. Many dance studios offer courses through their website membership programs, but you can also find many dance lessons on YouTube or social media platforms for free or donation.
Many dancers have started to use live streaming options on Facebook and Instagram to share real-time connections with their students. Regardless of your level or budget, or whether you are looking for ballroom, ballet, or belly dance, there is likely an online dance class that will work for you.
Tips for Getting Started with Online Dance Classes
Before you choose an online dance class, double-check that the level is appropriate for your current skills. Suppose the instructor has scheduled the scheduled for a specific time. In that case, you should know which time zone they live in and whether or not you will need to show up early to log in. Do not hesitate to reach out to the instructor before the class and ask about anything you may be unsure of, such as required equipment.
Online dance classes are not the same as in-person experiences, but they are a good alternative in these trying times. There is no better time than now to learn a new healthy hobby, and online dance is guaranteed to be a fun one!
Dance Reflection Resources
I practice journaling and reflection regularly as a part of my dance practice. I’ve found that I feel more connected to myself as a dancer when I check-in on my goals and experiences.
If you’d like to start your own dance diary journey, I’ve made my Diary pages available in my Ko-Fi shop.
