End Of Year

Live music is not set in stone, like recorded music, so within a set song there may be changes of nuances according to the mood of the situation.  Most experienced social dancers are prepared to improvise and are ready to adapt and move to the music.

But even if you are prepared by listening to Latin Music and knowing the most popular songs, you will still need to adapt your dance to suit the mood of the occasion. After all, this is the beauty of live music and dancing to it, as every performance is unique and it will depend on the mood and energy of the dancers and the musicians, as well as the rapport they create with the audience.

"Here In My Heart" by Al Martino

Last but not least, relax and enjoy! Dancing is fun and this needs to come across in your performance. Smile and do not worry too much about making small errors that the audience will not even notice as long as you keep smiling and look relaxed. Also, by relaxing you will be more able to tune in to the music and let your musical intuition take over and translate into comfortable movements. That's Dancing!

"There are short cuts to happiness and dancing may be one of them."
