Are Instructional Videos a good learning tool; is it possible to learn to dance from videos?
Instructional videos are great for a variety of reasons: - they can be used in
the privacy of your own home any time, at your convenience - they are very
easy-to-follow and great to learn & review patterns with or without a
partner - It is cost effective. - there are many steps & variations and you
can go at your own pace - details about hands and counts are easy to visualize
and learn - you can rewind and review them as many times as you want, whenever
you feel like it.
I have never danced before, and donít know where to start, any suggestions?
Look for the videos marked as beginners, those are the tapes that require no
experience at all.
- I've got two left feet and my husband can't hear the beat of the music. Can we really learn how to dance from videotapes?
By far, the biggest barrier will be attitude, not aptitude. A long time ago, I
thought about dance ability like I thought about artistic ability: you either
had it or you didn't. Now, I don't think about either of those abilities like
that. I've personally watched some folks that I thought would be (I hate to say
it) hopeless develop into formidable dancers. This experience has been very
inspirational and it has made me completely rethink and reject the notion that
natural talent is destiny. I believe that anybody who can tap their foot or
clap their hands in time to the beat of the music is trainable. When I observe
crowds of folks at concerts, I see that 99% of the people can successfully clap
their hands, tap their feet, sing along, or play "air guitar" in time to the
beat of the music. Almost every teen-aged boy has played "air guitar" or "air
drums." This leads me to believe that 99% of adults are rhythmically capable.
As far as having two left feet: again, the barrier is attitude, not aptitude.
Social dancing requires no more "talent" than rope skipping, swimming, skiing,
or riding a bike. Besides, for the rhythm Ďthingí we sell cdís to help out!
