From jazz to tap, Latin to ballet, dancing is an amazing way for both adults and kids to feel free, have fun and get lost in a piece of music. We dance to express emotion, to celebrate victory and to get closer to the people around us. Whether you want to impress a significant other, work on your fitness in a fun way or give your kids a new experience, dance classes are a great option. But there are so many classes and courses out there that it can be overwhelming. From group classes for kids and adults in studios around Melbourne to online apps for beginners where you can learn a specific set of choreography, there are so many options for where and how to learn. So why are private lessons with Superprof teachers such a good option? Find out below!
Have you ever decided you wanted to start dancing classes, but studios were already in the middle of a term and wouldn't accept new students? Or maybe a great studio in your location only offered a particular style of dance? Or perhaps you couldn't find an adult beginner class that fits in with your busy timetable? Well, all of these problems and more are resolved with a private course. With Superprof teachers, you're in charge, so you will decide, when, where and what you'd love to learn in your lesson. Let's start with the when; we all have busy lives, especially as adults, but Superprof teachers can work with your timetable to create a course of lessons that will give you enough contact time to learn to salsa or tap like a professional in no time. They can even vary times from week to week if need be.
Next is the location; maybe you don't have time to travel to a studio, so you want your teacher to come to you, or you want online classes. In any case, our teachers are flexible and will be able to travel to meet the needs of students. And what will you learn in your classes? That's the best part. Anything you want! A dancing school or studio has set courses that they run to benefit the group of students, and that's great. But if you take lessons with a Superprof teacher, you have the freedom and flexibility to get exactly what you want out of your classes. You can take classes in pairs or groups, perhaps to choreograph a routine for a special occasion like a wedding, or even as a fun and different way to work on your fitness.
If you're more into dance as a form of fitness, your teacher can organise a fun Zumba style class that gets your heart rate going. If you want to learn to express emotion through dance, a contemporary class might be a great idea for you. Our diverse range of Superprof teachers has experience teaching at any level, from beginner to advanced, in a variety of styles. They'll take into account your time, level, previous experience and interests to create classes just for you and they know how to plan lessons where their students will not only have fun, but also fall in love with dancing all over again.
Dance is not just one genre. Like music, theatre or any of the other performing arts, there is a range of exciting styles that a student can specialise in. Different teachers will have a different experience, so it's a good idea to look carefully at their online profile and find a teacher that can help you with the style you love, whether jazz, salsa or hip hop. Here's a little breakdown of some of the more popular styles of dance you could learn:
Ballet: So many little kids dream of being prima ballerinas when they're little, and although that isn't possible for most of us, learning ballet is still a beautiful experience that can teach us so much. The different poses are a foundation for almost every other type of dance and for both kids and adults it can teach persistence, motivation and endurance. For a beginner, succeeding in mastering a technique like a tendu or a jeté can give us a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction, as well as feeling grateful as we move.
Contemporary: Contemporary dance is a fusion of ballet and modern dance that involves many a technique, like contract-release, fall and recovery and improvisation. Many students and teachers see it as a more expressive and fluid style of dance that connects the mind and body to create emotion.
Hip Hop: We all know hip hop as a genre of music, but it's also a very popular style of dance that takes hard work and persistence to master. Often danced in groups, hip hop involves a variety of styles from popping and locking to breakdance. Because music is generally faster than other styles, it's also a great way to improve fitness.
Latin: There's nothing sexier than salsa with a great partner. Latin dance involves styles that you usually see in professional competitions like rumba, samba and paso doble, as well as more social dances like salsa and bachata. These diverse styles evolved in Latin America from a fusion of Aztec and Inca movements with European and African influences. It's one of the more fun styles of dance, and great for couples who want to have a great experience learning something together.
Dancing is such a great way to move your body and have fun at the same time, and taking private classes will help you to learn new moves, get into the beat and impress your friends every time you go dancing in a club.
