Whatever you want to accomplish as a dancer, you can use STEEZY Studio to help you get there.
Being able to “get” choreography is something that comes with lots of practice. So take more classes – regularly.
There are over 150 classes on STEEZY Studio that you can choose from. STEEZY Studio lets you pause the class and repeat sections, but try not to use them.
Taking it straight through will challenge you to keep up with the pace of the class.
For more tips on picking up choreography faster, watch this video:
If you want to dance sharper, crisper, and clearer, then pause the STEEZY Studio class whenever you need to match your pictures.
Just hit your space bar, then copy the lines and angles move by move.
Then, drill the sections in "Slow" 5 times. (You have to be able to do something slow, before you do it fast.)
As you're practicing the choreography in slow tempo, let your body memorize how the pictures and pathways feel.
Speed it up from there to "Medium" then "Tempo," as many times as you need. Then, close your eyes or turn away from the mirror to practice it.
This will turn the understanding of what you’re supposed to look like, into what you actually look like.

Training your foundation is the basis of freestyle.
STEEZY Studio has custom-designed programs that teach you all the basic moves and techniques in different styles.
And if you do take a lot of choreography classes, then the vocabulary of moves you learn from those pieces will add to your freestyles as well.

You don’t take classes or watch videos to bite choreo.
The goal is to observe the creative process through other choreographers’ eyes, and adopt the tools you need to create your own work.
Since you can’t ask questions during a STEEZY Studio class, the teachers explain their moves super thoroughly.
And a lot of the time, the best way to explain these movements is to talk about how they came up with it.
For example, they describe how a sound made them react in a certain way or how the lyrics in the song translated into a move.
Learning about their processes will show you how to approach choreography.
You can also become a better teacher by learning from great teachers.
ALL of the choreographers on STEEZY Studio have extensive experience choreographing and teaching for teams, classes, workshops, performances, and more.
They know how to create and communicate their work. Understanding how they think and teach will make you a better teacher, too!
Since there’s no pressure or judgement in an online class, you can practice playing a character, modifying moves – just dancing like yourself.
So let yourself play with the choreography!If anything, be messy. Who cares. Let your body move in ways that feel good to you.
You can discover your style in that interpretation of the piece. DON’T lose that!
There are so many ways to use STEEZY Studio to become a better dancer, whatever “better” means to you!
