With its popularity in popular culture and its importance in certain religious festivals, there truly are too many types of dance to name. But that’s a good thing. It means that you will be able to find a type of dance that you absolutely love.

Dance is an art form. It is a way of using movement to express how we feel and to show the people that we are. It can be used socially to bring people together, culturally as a form of identity, or competitively in a competition. But what’s great about dance is its uniqueness to each person. The desire to rhythmically move to music can manifest itself in different ways in different people. Yes, the more skilled performers will express that desire in a specific way, but that doesn’t stop any other person moving however they see fit.

Finding dance classes for kids

Dances are often characterised based on their geographical, historical, or cultural origin, or their choreography. They can be an art form to be observed or a participatory type of exercise. Some of the more common categories are:

  • Ballroom dance: This includes dances such as Foxtrot, Waltz, Tango, Rumba, and Cha-Cha. Ballroom dancing is done in couples and follow a series of pre-defined steps.
  • Latin dance: Popular across Latin American cultures, these dance styles are danced at a fast-paced with a unique rhythm. The popularity of dances such as Salsa, Flamenco, Jive, and Vallenato means that dance classes can often be found across the world.
  • Jazz dance: Jazz dancing has had a wide influence on numerous other types of dances. Its high levels of energy and its combination of different styles make it a firm favourite for watching and participating. Famous dances include the Charleston, Swing, and Tap Dance.
  • Performance dance: Ballet and Contemporary Dance both exemplify performance dance’s ability to use dance to tell a story through theatrical representation. A dance company and its professional dancers specialising in performance dance will have high levels of artistry and their performances will leave you wanting more.
  • Modern dance: This is a response to musical developments which have seen a growth in associated dances such as Punk, Rave, Disco, House, and even Hip-Hop.

The benefits of learning to dance

There are many great reasons why everyone should learn how to dance. It doesn’t need to be a choreographed routine and it doesn’t need to take place at a dance school, but learning to dance will be one of the most fun things that you do. It’s the perfect way to show your emotions and to build your self-confidence.

If taking a more structured approach appeals to you, you could learn moves such as the pirouette or plié if you learn classical ballet, or if street dance is more your thing then mastering breaking, locking, or tutting could be right around the corner.

The options really are endless which means that by learning to dance you can experience vast and diverse cultures and histories where the dances have come from. Below you will find some of our top reasons for learning to dance:

  • Health and fitness: Dance is an excellent way to lose weight and stay in shape.
  • Reduce stress: Dancing releases endorphins as you exercise which energises you and makes you feel better about yourself.
  • Learn about new cultures: Some types of dancing are heavily intertwined with different cultures and therefore learning them can open your mind to new horizons.
  • Meet new people: Dancing with other people, as is often the case, means that you come in to contact with others which can mean you make new friends.
  • The options feel endless: There are so many different types of dance that you are sure to find something perfect for what you want to do on the dance floor!
  • It’s fun!: The biggest reason – dancing is extremely good fun!

Choosing a dance style for children

Before you even start thinking about going down to your local dance studio to find a dance class, you need to decide which style is best for you! Most people already have a very good idea about which dance class they want to take because they have find a type of dancing that they like or that interests them.

However, if this is not the case for you, have a think about exactly what you want to achieve. Some types of dancing are better for getting in shape as they offer a more rigorous work out, whereas others as seen more of an art form due to their precise moves and the way that the dancers effortlessly glide across the floor.

Once you have thought about what you want to get out of learning to dance, you can then decide on a style. For example, ballroom dancing or performance dance are perceived as being more artistic in nature, with modern dance being more of a thorough workout, and Latin dance as being somewhere in between the two. Naturally, this is far from an exhaustive list so it might be a good idea to do some research about what categories of dance suit your end goal the best, and subsequently what exact type of dance within your selected category would be best for you.

Dance lessons for kids with a private teacher

Once you have decided on an exact type of dance to learn, you are then ready to begin. There are a number of ways that you can learn to dance. With the growth of the internet and specifically YouTube, you can find dance videos for all abilities and all styles.

Although there are some advantages to this, there are also some drawbacks. Primarily, you don’t get to engage with anyone else such as a teacher or fellow students, nor are you able to get any feedback on how you are progressing and what you can improve.

In the UK, we are lucky that there are plenty of dance teachers and dance instructors around who are on hand to help us learn. In the vast majority of towns and cities across the length and breadth of the UK, you will be able to find a private dance teacher you give you the tailored classes and advice which will benefit you.

Learning to dance with a dance teacher in the UK will mean that you get out exactly what you want from your learning experience as your teacher will be able to design the classes specifically with you in mind. If you find something very easy, then they will speed the classes up, and if you are struggling with a specific aspect then they can give you extra support. As such, you won’t get lost in the sea of a large class where the teacher has to focus on the class as a whole and therefore has less time for each individual student.
