Online classes are a great way to develop a skill. Modern Technology allows online courses and webinars to be helpful and useful. You can take a course and learn at your own pace, or you can catch a live class for immediate feedback. They offer lots of advantages, including flexibility, comfortability, and best of all, no geographical limits. Here are 5 tips on how you can, in this case, effectively get the most out of taking a dance course online.
There are 100s of courses out there to choose from! This might sound obvious, but picking the right course will be the deciding factor in how well you will progress. Ask yourself and be honest! What are my achievable dance goals, and how can I achieve them! Then go ahead and pick a course that is suitable for you.
It will help a lot more if you can interact and engage in the class instead of just watching. Designate or make yourself a comfortable space that you can move and groove in. This can be anywhere outside, in your garage, or in your living room. Moving and shaking instead of just sitting will help with the immediacy each class will give you.
Communicating and talking with the instructor will allow you to feel a lot more involved and guarantee that you are being watched for mistakes. This will also enable the instructor to start teaching in a way that will benefit you.
Try to set yourself up for success! Set yourself up to make small victories. Try to learn a small part of the combination or footwork being taught. Trying to learn everything to perfection will have you stressing out. Learning a small piece will guarantee you walk away with some knowledge of the class.
You reached the end of the class! You designated a space to dance, you asked questions, and you set small and achievable goals! Now review what you learned! When you review, make sure to remember the counts and then try the steps to music. Last but not least, try to make the moves your own. Dance is a form of expression, so express yourself!
If you follow our 5 tips, we guarantee that online classes will make a lot more sense and will definitely help you progress as a dancer. The internet is a fantastic tool that can be used for many things, so why not use it to groove out and become a better dancer.
