Learning Plateaus
Cindy Rastutis
Learning PlateausHave you ever felt that you could not understand how to do a certain dance move even though you have practiced it over and over and over again? Do you feel like your dancing is just not improving although you're dancing all the time? Have you hit that "Plateau" or roadblock? . . . more info

Developing Dance Frame
Michele Rasmussen
Developing Dance FrameOnce you have developed a quiet, stable dance frame, that connection with your dance partner will allow you the luxury to listen to, and enjoy, the music that you are dancing to. Spaghetti Arms, or lack of Dance Frame, is a common problem for new dancers. It is one of the most important building blocks in becoming an accomplished dancer. It is also one of the most difficult skills for a new dancer to master. It is equally important for the leader and follower to both have, and maintain, a good, constant and continuous dance frame. . . . more info

Building a Strong Dance Foundation
Michele Rasmussen
Building a Strong Dance FoundationWhen building a house, the foundation is one of the most important tasks that a builder has. If the foundation is not properly laid then the entire edifice will be unstable. This applies to everything that we do in life. We need a strong foundation on which to build. And so it is with dance. Learning the basics and learning them well are the most essential elements to becoming a great dancer. . . . more info

What Size Dance Shoe?
Michele Rasmussen
What Size Dance Shoe?I had quite a few questions on "What size do I buy", so I will try and answer that here. Once again, I recommend the Very Fine brand of dance shoes. They are reasonably priced, durable and have many, many styles to choose from. . . . more info

What to Wear on the Social Dance Floor
Michele Rasmussen
What to Wear on the Social Dance FloorWhile there is no golden rule regarding what to wear on the social dance floor, the rule of thumb would be to wear something that is comfortable and not cumbersome. Keep in mind that not matter what the season, winter, spring, summer or fall, chances are that you will be quite warm, if not hot while dancing. You need to have freedom of movement without worry! . . . more info

Dance Shoes are Essential
Michele Rasmussen
Dance Shoes are EssentialDance shoes. Now there is a controversial subject for you. Just ask a dancer, any dancer and you will find that they all have their "favorites". I am no different and while I do not profess to be an expert, I will tell you, with no doubt, that you DO need "Dance Shoes"! Trying to dance in "street" shoes is sort of like trying to swim in "street" clothes. You can do it, but it is a struggle, it takes more effort and is by far more difficult. . . . more info

Ladies' Hairstyles for Ballroom Competition
By Alexandra Caluen
Ladies' Hairstyles for Ballroom CompetitionThe stereotypical lady ballroom dancer's hairstyle is an elaborate updo, teased and tweaked into an architectural marvel, shellacked into place with gallons of gel and spray, and embellished with rhinestones, pins, combs, and/or feathers. Such a style has its charms, but is difficult to achieve without professional help. What a relief that for many competitors, it's not necessary. . . . more info

Michele Rasmussen
Here are a few exercises that you can practice no matter where you are. Like standing in a line, or waiting for the microwave, stirring something on the stove, drying your hair........you get the idea. These are BALANCE EXERCISES that will help to strengthen your coordination, muscles, and reflexes. . . . more info

Ballroom vs Swing vs Salsa
Michele Rasmussen
Ballroom vs Swing vs SalsaIf you have yet to stick your toe into a dance shoe, and hit the dance floor, then you will likely be as confused as I was, when I decided that I had waited too long to learn to dance. I had no idea just how many styles of dance there were, and I do not profess to even know now, however I do know that Ballroom, Swing and Salsa are very often, all danced at the same venue. . . . more info

Following are the top 4 health benefits of dance. 1. Flexibility Flexibility is an important part of being healthy. Dance requires a great amount of flexibility.

When it's OK to Say No.
Michele Rasmussen
When it's OK to Say No.While it is proper etiquette to dance when asked, there are appropriate times when it is all right to politely decline. In other words, it's OK, to say no. Generally you wouldn't say no, just because someone is less experienced than you, or you don't like the outfit they have on, or even if they have bad breath. (although you might want to share a mint or two) But it is perfectly acceptable to say no if someone has had too much to drink, or if they are inappropriate in any way. . . . more info

Andrew Pueschel

From memory gain and weight loss to lower blood pressure and increased stamina, the amount of positive health gauges attributed it the sport has helped to increase . . . more info

Social Dance Etiquette
Social Dance Etiquette Etiquette is here to ensure everyone has a good time in a social dance setting, so it is important, to pay attention to it. While I am sure that there are always exceptions to these "rules", these are the rules that pertain to dance clubs everywhere, be it a small town gathering or a large dance convention. . . . more info

Dancing and Cruising!
Michele Rasmussen
Dancing and Cruising!Last week I took my 15 year old son on a Carnival Cruise. We had a wonderful time, but there was something missing............. http://ytbtravel.com/mrshasta I suppose, only a fellow dance fanatic like me, would understand this, but here goes........I missed dancing!!! I could not believe, with 3500 passengers aboard the cruise ship, that I could not find one other person to Waltz around the many dance floors on the ship with! . . . more info
