When you hit the dance floor do you tense up and get all awkward?
Are you not sure what to do with your hands?
Are you unable to decipher the mood of the music?
Don't fear, STEEZY'S HERE!
We came up with 10 easy tips to help you look cool while you dance:
Honestly most of us learn how to dance
because we just want to look cool
and you know what doesn't look cool? Looking
You don't want to look like that. So here are 10 tips to take your dancing from awkward and stiff to super lit.
Tip #1: Be on beat. Even if
your moves are super hot fire
you know that you're still gonna look really awkward if you're not dancing to the
rhythm. So make sure you just take your
time, listen to the music, find that
consistent rhythm so that you can use
the beat to guide your movements.
Tip #2: Don't lock your limbs. No one
looks cool dancing with over extended knees or elbows
So shake them out, bend
your knees, keep your body comfortable
Tip # 3: Don't cut off your movements. A lot of awkwardness comes from stiffness and a
lot of stiffness comes from interrupting
your movements, so don't interrupt your
movements unless you're purposely
isolating your body parts ok?
Tip #4: Use everyday motions as part of
your dancing. Lyle Beniga is amazing at
taking familiar scenarios and turning
them into effortless dances.
Point is, you don't have to bust out some crazy combo to be a good dancer. Sometimes trying too
hard can look awkward. Stick to things
that are simple and comfortable on your body.
Tip #5: Be intentional with
your hands. Not paying attention to your
hands can make you look really, really
Here's some cooler ideas for your hands.
You can point, clap a little bit, hello audience,
greetings, whip, milly rock, and what's up b-boy stance.
Tip #6: Match the mood of
the music. Your dancing can also look
super awkward if it just doesn't fit how
the music feels.
Tip #7: Dance through your mistakes. Like Jessie, she's
been dancing through her whole life. OHHH MY LIFE IS A MISTAKE.
Jessie Ma-stake. Mess ups are only awkward if you make them awkward. Don't make it awkward.
Stop! Stop being awkward ok.
If you end up tripping on stage it's
okay, you trip on stage. The DJ says step
to the right and you step to the left
it's okay it happened man, just keep on
going, no one's gonna worry about it, chiiiiilllll.
Tip #8: Condition your body.
Whatever your body shape or size you can
condition it to dance the way that you
want so stretch out for flexibility
and range of motion, do cardio for more
stamina, and lift weights if you want to dance with more strength.
Tip #9: Face different directions. Facing the front
the whole time is boring and you're not
boring are you? So face different
directions, face the side, face this side
face the back, face the ceiling.
Last but not least Tip #10: It's okay to
look or feel stupid.
