Five super simple ways to help you connect deeper to your dance and improve your movement aesthetics:

 

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

 

2.) 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.

 

3.) 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.

 

4.) 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.”

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