Finding the Perfect Dance Tutor in Leicester

Humans have been dancing for over 10,000 years and while this would have originally mainly been a ritual, dance has evolved into a variety of different styles like ballet, hip hop, and contemporary dance for example.

If you're interested in learning how to dance, let's learn about the benefits of learning how to dance, the challenges dancers face, how private dance tutoring can help, and how to find private dance tutors in and around Leicester.

The Benefits of Learning to Dance

Whether you're good at dancing or just learning how to dance, there are a lot of benefits.

Firstly, dancing is exercise so it comes with all the same benefits as most workouts. Of all the arts, dancing is probably the closest one to sports and since you'll be moving about as you would at the gym, you'll improve the condition of your heart and lungs and your overall endurance and aerobic fitness.

Training as a dancer will also help you to improve your coordination and balance. While certain styles require a greater sense of balance than others, all of them can help.

Dance lessons offer more than benefits for your physical health and fitness; they can also help improve your cognitive functions. Dancers need to learn routines and the process of learning a new dance works on your memory.

All these benefits are one of the reasons why dancing is recommended for older people. There are plenty of low-impact styles of dance that are suitable and no matter what your fitness is like, you can find a style of dancing to get you started.

Challenges in Dancing

If dancing was that easy, all of us would be excellent dancers. To enjoy all of the benefits of dancing, you need to put the effort in.

Firstly, dancing can be physically exhausting, especially certain uptempo styles like salsa, Latin, and street. Of course, that doesn't mean that ballroom dancing is easy, but there are certain styles that an instructor would recommend you start with over others.

Some styles require a great degree of flexibility and coordination. For some, especially the older among us, certain styles may be beyond our reach, but there are so many different styles of dancing out there that everyone should be able to find something that will work for them.

Dancing can be very frustrating, too. As you learn new moves and routines, likely, you won't get them right at the first time of asking. You'll have to practise repeatedly until you get them right and learn from your mistakes. Remember that every mistake is an opportunity to learn and we gain more experience from making mistakes than getting something right the first time we try it.


Private Tuition in Dancing

If you'd like to learn how to dance, private tutoring is arguably the best way to do it as the tutor can adapt their classes to the student unlike in a dance class where they may have too many students to give each one the time and attention they need.

Every student is different and in a large class, a teacher has to watch all their students, remember which parts they get wrong, and offer up corrections, which is time wasted for the students that don't need this feedback. This can also make the student that made the mistake feel singled out, even if the teacher doesn't explicitly say it was them who got it wrong.

A tutor can focus on the student and ensure that the classes are adapted to them, their level, what they want to learn, and how they like to learn. This means that the time in class is spent more effectively and students tend to learn more quickly with private tutoring than they would in a larger dance class.

Private tutors tend to offer a broader range of dance styles as dance schools and academies can only offer classes according to demand and need to fill classes. Since face-to-face tutors only need one student to fill a class, they can offer almost any style of dancing that they've trained in.

As there are more variables to consider with private dance tutoring, there's also a broader range in terms of rates. This means that you're more likely to find dance tutors for a range of budgets.

Finding a Dance Tutor in Leicester

If you're in getting private dance lessons from a tutor in Leicester or around Leicestershire, just search for them on the Superprof website. Whether it's ballet, ballroom, tap, modern, salsa, Latin, or street, there are thousands of dance tutors all over the country and around the world.

You can find face-to-face tutors, online tutors, and group tutors on the website and each type of tutoring come with advantages and disadvantages so shop around and think carefully about which type of teaching will work best for you.

As we touched upon, face-to-face tutors can offer an effective learning experience. As they spend time outside of their lessons adapting the class to the student, they tend to charge more than other types of tutors but also offer the most cost-effective type of tutoring available.

Group tutoring is great for those on a budget, but it does mean that you mightn't get the tailored approach of one-on-one tuition. However, these types of lessons can be more fun and you get to meet different people and practise with students who have a level similar to yours rather than always having to dance with your instructor, who'll be better at dancing than you.

If you can't find any suitable tutors in Leicester or Leicestershire, you can always broaden your search to include online tutors. While it's certainly useful having a tutor there in the room with you, you'd be surprised at just how effective online tutoring can be when tutors adapt their lessons.

Remember that a lot of the tutors and instructors on Superprof offer the first lesson or session for free so you can try out several different tutors before deciding on which one is right for you, your budget, and how you'd like to study dancing.
