How to get the most out of Your Dance Lessons at Le Danse Club
WE CONGRATULATE each client on having the vision and the power of self-direction to enroll in their course of dance instruction. They are setting out on a bold, worthy and fascinating program of fun and social ease.
At the termination of this training, they will probably be astonished at how much they have gained from it. They will have progressed far more than they dreamed possible. For the rest of their life, they are very likely to look back on this course as one of the turning points in their life.
These statements may sound like wild exaggerations, but they are not. They are the truth.
Helpful Hints to our New Clients
Your attitude is all important. You may have enrolled in this course only because someone has insisted that you learn. No matter what your reason, you will get a great deal more out of your lessons if you start with this attitude:
If that is your attitude, we can help you help yourself to an extent that may almost take your breath away.
No technical knowledge of music is necessary to become a good dancer. It is perfectly natural to have some difficulty distinguishing between different types of music and recognizing the beat at first. As your lessons progress, this trouble disappears. On the very first lesson you will learn the basic steps on which all dance patterns are based.
It is important to keep your lessons as close together as possible, coming in two or three times a week. This way you do not forget between lessons and you learn faster.
During the first few lessons, you are taught by a Foundation Teacher (“Dance Specialist”) whose job it is to teach you as fast as you can learn to determine the least amount of sessions necessary to make you as good of a dancer as you decide you want to be.
Within a very few lessons, you will be ready to attend studio parties where you will dance with teachers and with other students like yourself. This serves as a bridge between lessons and going out “on your own”.
If you do any dancing away from the studio during the lessons of “basic training,” do not be alarmed if you have some initial trouble. We all must get used to something new. Discuss any problems with your Foundation Teacher.
Many students tell us "I'd rather not dance with a good partner until I'm better." A moment's reflection will show you this borders on "the blind leading the blind." Find as good a dancer as you can and be assured your partner will appreciate the fact that you are doing the correct steps to whatever music the orchestra plays. Then as you develop into a fine, smooth dancer, other good dancers will seek you out.
ONCE YOU HAVE ACCOMPLISHED the basic patterns in all the popular dances, it's all clear sailing ahead if you keep in mind the normal pattern of learning.
So Relax! Realize that if you give us your complete cooperation, together we shall produce results that may seem like magic. In a matter of months you will make more progress in dancing and social preparedness than you have made in years of haphazard searching. Just be patient now and let the magic happen inside you.
Do not expect steady, uniform improvement. It does not come steadily- it comes in spurts. Perhaps you will improve for five to ten lessons then you will hit a plateau, where you see no improvement for a lesson or two; you may even appear to slip back a few hours. Don't let that disturb you. Soon you will again show great improvement. Then you may hit another plateau, another slump, more progress and so it will go. Please understand that, in learning an art, a game, or a skill, like dancing, this uneven progress is normal and natural!
You are now on the road to becoming an exceptional dancer and a popular member of any crowd at a studio which has a time-proven system.
Congratulations and good luck!
