Here are five super simple ways to connect more deeply to your dance and improve your movement aesthetics:

Trace: Trace the pole, the floor, your body, and your environment to deepen your engagement both in your dance and with your audience.

Eye Contact: Dancers who aren’t afraid to meet the eyes of their audience exude a special confidence. The use of your eyes helps tell your story, show emotion, and connect you to your movement.

Use Your Head: Don’t keep a rigid head/neck. Your head and neck should flow as an extension of your movement and makes a significant impact on your visual performance.

Busy Hands: Similar to your head, your limbs are an immense part of your storytelling. Engaging hand movement alone can take a novice move from basic to advanced in the visual realm.

“A busy hand is a pretty hand.” (For more on hand shapes and positioning: start video @6:12)

Slow Down: Own your movement. Seize the moment and everything you are experiencing. Slow it way down; savor and prolong each articulation.

Much love and happy dancing! 💃🌸
