MEN DON’T DANCE?!
Myths about paired dances (for men).
Once I believed in these myths, as many have already stepped through this “pen” guys who are afraid to even think about dancing as less serious lesson for men… After all, most of the others, among which most likely You believe that…
1. “Men don’t dance.”
This is a huge and bloated, having nothing under a stereotype that men often (with a touch of humor) cover their fears of dancing and the weaker sex, with whom they really want to, but are afraid to dance.
Let’s face it, men often just don’t have the courage to dance… It is enough to remember how vigorously many dance at various parties “under this business” when social “shelters”, stereotypes and fears dissolve in alcohol. Dance – it is in principle natural and inherent in a person since childhood (because children often dance, jump, run – and this is perfectly normal for them, unlike the complex and such funny “serious” adults). Everyone has a craving for dance, just someone spits on stereotypes and gets a lot of pleasure from dancing and communicating with the opposite sex during the dance. And someone is still afraid, depriving yourself of this pleasure… for what?
2. “…it’s scary.”
What is the cause of fear. Not afraid of the dance, scared to START… people are frightened by new things. If you have not danced before, the dance will scare you, because this is the so-called zone of the unknown (not yet comfortable zone). One has only to overcome this primary fear, take the first step through the threshold of the hall for classes, as fear disappears. There is a wild delight, joy and satisfaction… both from the dances themselves and from the feeling of victory over their fears and “pens”.
3. “okay, but dancing is so hard…”
Wrong again… dancing in a world of many, infinitely many, and if you want to dance the first party on the stage of “Large”, then it of course will require a lot of labor and time. You want it? If you just want to dance relatively simple dances just for your own pleasure – choose social pair dances (salsa , bachata, ZUK, Kizomba, merengue, cha-Chu). In order to feel good in these not tricky dances, as practice shows, a couple of hours a week for six months (Yes, so soon) and you can easily drive a partner on the dance floor and cause envy and respect from those who DO not know how. You yourself will not notice at what point you begin to feel like a fish in the water to the music.
4. “It’s too late for me to start.”
Dance has been living in us since childhood. Dance is a part of us, so it’s never too late to let that natural power in us unfold. If you’re aiming for the stage, you really should have started as a child. And if you just want to enjoy the music, movement and partner, plus a little boast in front of not yet dancing friends, you can always start. If we talk about social pair dancing – bachata, salsa and others, you can start well and 50 years! There are enough examples. Dare
5. “I’m not made for dancing.”
Such cases happen of course, but if you have hands, feet , and desire, then you will definitely dance! Of course, some people naturally have more data for dancing than others… does this mean that the latter should stand aside and not dance at all? No. Just someone in the process of learning will have to try harder, listen more carefully, more practice… well, harder, that’s all. As practice shows, these guys make great dancers, with whom everyone wants to dance. No matter how much God has measured you talent, believe me, it’s enough. Success is 20% talent, the rest is work. Thing it is not to be afraid.
6. “Somehow lazy, there is a need to go to class…”
Well.… this is of course a “serious” argument. Interest – chief fighter with your laziness! If you are not interested to live, it means your “song already sung” while still young it would seem the age.
7. “I’m going to look bad.”
Another “pen”. You dance for YOURSELF!!! And in the background surrounding, which often before you and do not have – because they are busy with themselves or those who dance better than you. Are you afraid to make a mistake in the steps or conduct partner? Mistakes do everything! Even those who dance social partner dance years. But in these dances – it is difficult to be mistaken, because the dances are largely arbitrary. In addition error – motivated to learn, to practice and to enjoy the victories and mistakes.
