Learn to Dance DVD – Your Home Dance Instructor
Learning how to dance is a fun alternative to your workout at the gym. It pumps your blood, accelerates your heartbeat and tones the muscles of your body. It lifts your mood, builds self-confidence, and sharpens the mind. You can master your favorite dance at the comforts of your home. Just follow the steps demonstrated in a “learn to dance” DVD.
To help you decide on the particular DVD to get, consider the following tips.
Choosing Your ‘Learn to Dance’ DVD
1. Decide on the kind of exercise or dance you want. If the only exercise-at-home VHS tape or DVD you have in your library is still the aerobic exercise of Jane Fonda (it’s a wonder if it still plays, or you still have a player for it) then it is about time you get yourself a new learn to dance DVD. Shucks! Following those repetitive steps can become tedious. So it is time to let go of the dusty past and move on to newer, more exciting complete fitness dance workouts, such as swing, hip hop dance, Latin, freestyle, tango, flamenco and other invigorating dances that can really make you shake that booty.
2. Consider your fitness level. For safety reasons, appropriately choose your learn to dance DVD. Look for a beginner’s DVD if you are just starting out; an intermediate DVD if you already have learned the basics; or an advanced video if you have mastered some moves already and are looking for additional challenge. Gradually pace your progress to allow your body to adjust and assimilate. Jumping to the next level right away could easily discourage you if you find it difficult to catch on. Jumping ahead could even lead to an injury.
3. Pick out the dance instruction guru you want to follow. These days, “descendants” of Jane Fonda have proliferated, making your selection process difficult. SO make sure that you do enough research to check if the expert you are eyeing is really worth following. Consider those who already have a staunch following or have effectively coached a number of people before. You can ask previous students for feedback on how the guru was as a dance instructor.
4. Opt for a learn to dance DVD that is of high quality. Remember that the video is your dance teacher. What you actually see and hear from the video is crucial in your learning. It may be difficult to pick-up some of the moves if the lighting of the video is poor and the sound it produces is cacophonous or is skipping. A poorly recorded video is tantamount to an incompetent instructor.
