Scared of brain fry in our beginner dance class? Many people are anticipating that they won’t be able to remember a dance routine and will look awful doing it. The first thing to note is that if you’re caught up caring about how good you look in our beginner dance class, then you’ve kind of missed the point. It’s more about having a good time and learning some new skills that you take home with you to practise if you want.
Anyway we’re rambling again. What is a combo or choreography? So our Beginner Groove classes end in a combo/choreo. This is basically stringing together a bunch of moves and trying it out to a few different tracks. It’s a hell of a fun time to see all the party dances you’ve learnt throughout class strung together and vibed to for the last 10 minutes of endorphin overloads.
More pro levels of choreo (the fancy/lazy dance industry term for choreography) is far more complex, hitting polyrhythms and complicated movement pathways. Essentially it is a dance routine, specifically made to match the nuance of a particular song.
Check out our friend Caetlyn Watson teaching a professional level of choreography:
Anyways, try out a class maybe? Yeah, do it!
