The Rise In Popularity of Dance Holidays

Dance holidays are becoming more and more popular these days, regardless of age or gender. Dancing keeps you fit and is a lot of fun. Whether you are a total beginner or have been dancing for many years, there is a dance holiday for you.

A dance holiday is also a great way to meet like-minded people and make new friends. If you love to travel and you love to dance, combining the two could be a wonderful experience.

There are many styles of dancing. You have probably heard of tango, salsa and foxtrot, for example. Tango originated in South America in the nineteenth century and is known as being a passionate, exciting dance. Salsa is a dance based on music with two bars of four beats. You usually take three steps then skip a beat, as you shift your weight to the other foot, keeping in perfect time with the music.

The foxtrot involves a slow-slow-quick-quick step and is easy to learn. If you choose a dance holiday, you will be able to take part in dance courses, tailored to your level of expertise. Technique, style and choreography will be included and the course will be light-hearted and a lot of fun.

There are many exotic destinations catering to dance holidays now, as the trend really takes off. You can choose from European resorts, holidays throughout North and South America, the Caribbean and even cruises. Immersing yourself in a different culture while enjoying that culture through dance is a fantastic experience and everything is organized for you.

You choose how many classes you want to attend, what kind of accommodation and resort you prefer and the rest is arranged for you. Cuba could be a good choice if you fancy combining salsa and merengue classes with mojitos and exploring old Havana. Spain is world famous for salsa and flamenco and a fascinating country to visit. New York is an exciting and vibrant city and a great place to learn ballroom dancing, latin dancing or even try out line dancing, while enjoying the culture and meeting new people.

A salsa holiday in Tenerife will be guaranteed to recharge your batteries. With year round sunny weather and great nightlife, Tenerife is a great spot to indulge in dancing. If you just can’t make up your mind, a mini cruise or full cruise will enable you to visit a variety of interesting destinations whilst practicing your steps both on-board and at the resorts.

If you don’t fancy traditional ballroom or latin dancing, you can try something fun like belly dancing classes, modern jive or even Bollywood. There are also sequence dancing and line dancing holidays. Dance holidays are so popular now that if you can think of a type of dance, there is probably a dance holiday to cover it.

Even if you dance regularly at home, taking dance classes in a new and exotic setting is sure to be an unforgettable experience.

Its origin seems to drift historically between oriental or inspired by the Romany gypsies. Today, however, belly dancing is more of a celebration of myriad cultures, which seeks to incorporate the best of all the cultures that have laid a claim on belly dancing.

Do you think this song is a good group dance song?

by Rgtmum

Question by EyesWideShut: Do you think this song is a good group dance song?
In my dance class we all have to choreograph a dance for a group dance. Many people dance to songs that are in now and are more of this time period. I would like to do an older song. Do you think people would like this song or would they think i am strange for choosing it?

I was thinking of stealing the dance move from Tom Cruise and in the beginning we could slide out.

What do you think our costumes should be?

I am basing the dance off of the Tom Cruise “Risky Business” with this song but i am making a new version out of it.

Answer by Katya Sude
no i think its fine… you shouldn’t be ashamed of it
