Why You Need To Learn Latin Dance Lessons

Some people may feel that dancing should come naturally to a person and need not be taught. While this may be true for some forms of dance, other forms really do need instruction. For example, you need to learn Latin dance lessons in order to be able to dance Latin dances properly. When you learn Latin dance lessons, you are training your body to co-ordinate the movements of various parts of your body. Teaching particular parts of your body how and when to move is certainly no easy task, and beginning dancers usually find this extremely difficult. Over time, however, as you learn Latin dance lessons, you will find that your control over your body will slowly improve.

 

Body Movements

 

When you learn Latin dance lessons, you will never learn that it should never be your legs or arms that initiate a movement. Any movement should always start with the body, and your limbs will follow the body’s lead. You will also learn that certain parts of your body that you previously thought you couldn’t move without moving the rest of your body can actually be moved independently. For example, your upper ribcage is able to move in almost any direction – backwards, forwards, or sideways – without your hips moving at all.

 

When you first start to learn Latin dance lessons, you will find it difficult to get your body to move in the way that you want it to. After some time, however, you will realize that all of the joints in your body are connected to each other. Your left knee joint, for example, is connected to your right hip, which is also connected to your right shoulder joint. This is important, as sometimes when you learn Latin dance lessons you will be required to move certain groups of joints all together.

 

Finally, your body should never be still when you are dancing. Whenever there is music playing, your body should be moving. This is because dance is a way for your body to interpret music that you hear.

 

Power from the hips

 

With most movements you find in Latin dance, the power to perform any particular movement comes from your hips. Your hips are able to move in any direction, such as forward, backward, sideways, and can even be made to move in a figure-of-eight design. When dancing, the lady will always use her hips to perform a hip twist in order to initiate a change of direction to the right. The hip twist forms the basis for a good many movements in Latin dance.

 

Due to the greater amount of curves present on a woman’s body than on a man’s, it is only natural that women make greater use of hip movements in Latin dancing. This is the origin of the movements in dance considered ‘sexy’ by many. Women who decide to learn Latin dance lessons should be prepared to make frequent use of their hips. Of course, men need to use their hips while dancing as well, but to a lesser extent.
