How To Prepare For A Ballroom Dance Competition

A Ballroom Dance Competition is a wonderful and exciting experience. Through year’s of experience, we have gathered some of the best information to help you be prepared.

Southern Heat National Dance Clubs 2015 Dance dress

The first thing you want to realize is that in those last few days before the competition you are as ready as you are going to be. You and your teacher have prepared prior to and they know that you are ready. They asked you to be part of the competition because they believed it would benefit you and that you were indeed ready. There is no amount of cramming that can be done the day before to make your dancing any better than you are at this moment. Now is the time to just relax and use the benefits of repetition. Being on the dance floor competing will actually give you the best advantage to becoming better than any amount of pre-studying. You will show off your best dancing when you are relaxed, so finding a way to de-stress will help you more than anything else. Find what works for you; humor, meditation, a hot bath…anything that puts you in your best state-of-mind.

Dancing in a competition itself is equivalent to taking almost 100 lessons. Imagine learning a sport, like say football. Now imagine that the team only practices but never plays a game….. How good would that team be? How well would they understand what those drills were for? How much motivation would they have to improve? If they could just play one game everything would suddenly become clear and that’s exactly what a Ballroom Dance Competition does for you! It is a Dancer’s Playoff Game. It is our chance to score the game winning touchdown. The experience, the electricity, the dresses and suits, the other dancers, and the confidence you gain all play a part in making you a better dancer in just two days!!

If you really want to enhance your competition experience further, try to pick one easy thing to improve in your dancing : focusing on a simple technique such as posture, frame, footwork, or just breathing can bring you great benefits in your dancing. It also helps to ease any nerves you are experiencing because it gives you something to center yourself on.

Here are some basics tips to help you prepare.

Be well rested– Arriving with enough time to get a good nights sleep the night before is an ideal way to start the competition off right.

Eat a well-balanced meal– Proper nutrition is important to any athlete. Dancing is great excercise and even though you want to make sure you are getting enough calories…it is equally important to make sure you are getting good nutritional calories. Avoid foods that are high in fats, sugar, and salt.

Get hydrated-Getting enough water will give you more of the energy and stamina you need. Start drinking lots of water leading up to the competition and make sure you stay hydrated throughout the day.

Get your hair and makeup done– I absolutely recommend getting your hair and makeup done by a professional ballroom stylist at the event.  We all perform better when we look our best and ballroom hair and makeup is completely different than any other reason you would have to use a stylist. Ballroom hair should be tight and hold well while you are moving. You would not want your hair coming loose in the middle of the dance. It is very distracting and can hurt your performance. Make-up is much heavier then every day make-up because of the lights and the distance. Without the proper stage make-up, you could look washed out on the dance floor and in your pictures. Having a professional do it for you for, at least, the first five times will give you a better idea of what you need and what you like. It is also one less thing you have to worry or stress about.
Supplies

Shoes – Believe it or not one of the most forgotten items at a Ballroom Dance competition are dance shoes. Remember to pack both your rhythm and smooth shoes, as well as, dress shoes for dinners.  (Men-Extra shoelaces are always a good idea.)

Dance Costumes- You will need both a Smooth and Rhythm dress or suit. A Ballroom costume is designed to give you comfortable ease of movement, while showing off your best features and inspiring movement. There is something enchanting about the way a great dress or suit makes you look and feel.

Clothes– Casual clothes for breakfast and down time. You will also need semi-formal and formal wear for dinners. Formal wear is reserved for the last evening and should be a long gown for the ladies and a black suit or tux for the men.Southern Heat National Dance Clubs 2015 Student Awards

Toiletries and Makeup-Toothbrush, razors, lotion, and any other must haves for getting ready will need to be packed. Ladies, you will need your normal makeup for breakfast or for any touch ups. I prefer to keep a bright red lipstick with me at all times. Also, Eyelashes: Typically your makeup stylist can provide these for you but I do like to pick up a handful if I see them on clearance. (Make sure you have eyelash glue.)

Jewelry or other accessories– It is eye-catching to add matching sparkly jewelry to Ballroom gowns and dinner dresses, or a great tie to a suit.Don’t forget to include these in your ensemble.

Extras– A few things that are helpful to include are mints, protein bars (for snacks), a mini sewing kit, and  extra socks or hose….Not always necessities, but nice to have just in case.

Lose Yourself in the Moment – Dance A Routine

Losing yourself in a dance or Living a Dance is one of the most glorious moments you will ever experience. For those few moments you become the dance, the emotions, and the experience. As you exist in the music, you learn to let go and live in the present. Stress melts away and you become free. You connect with partner and move the audience …as they experience the dance with you. The feeling is the equivalent of making that winning shot in the game as the crowd goes wild!

One of the most effective ways to add this to your dancing is to learn and perform a routine. Dancing a routine gives you the ability to get so comfortable with the steps that you have the ability to enhance the quality  and the emotion of your dancing!

Five Secret Reasons To Go To A Dance Party!!

Why someone would go to a Dance Party seems like it would be pretty easy to understand, but aside from the obvious there are actually hidden reasons to get out and party!!! Let’s talk about both!

party

Obvious reasons to go to a National Dance Clubs Friday Night Dance Party….

Fun – Absolutely! I can’t think of anything more fun than an evening of dancing, and with a new theme every week, a live band,  refreshments, and a show…. a Friday Night Party is a perfect evening of entertainment!

Meet new people – Ballroom dancing is a great way to meet new people who are looking for a healthy, energizing, and artistic way  to enjoy their free time. There is always someone new, and since we are so comfortable changing partners there is always the opportunity to make new friends.

To be social with friends – Getting out and enjoying the company of people with similar interests is so refreshing. We are the “Happiest, friendliest spot in town” and, just like on the show “Cheers”, walking into a place where everyone knows you and is happy to see you can be the best part of your day!

Enjoy the music – Many say that Music is communication of the soul and Dance is the expression of freedom. Music touches parts of us that are longing to be released. You know what I mean, because when your favorite song comes on, we all feel it…the excitement…the energy…the motivation to move. Experiencing a live band adds even more excitement to the evening! band

Date night – Spending time with your significant other is important, and with our busy, modern lifestyle it is also easy to be put on the back burner. We have to make our relationship a priority, parties give you a chance to carve out the time to ensure you have weekly moments of togetherness. Spending time having fun together keeps the flame burning bright!

Getting some adult time – If you have small children, or just children in general, it’s refreshing to spend time doing something you enjoy. When you fill yourself with a hobby your passionate about, you will have more energy to give to others.

5 Secret hidden reasons to go to the Party

  1. The teachers are there to help YOU!  Our teachers are there at the parties to help you enjoy the dancing, and they are there in case, as a beginner, you need a little help getting started. We all needed help with which songs go to which dance and getting started on time as a new dancer. We are always happy to help. Dancing is a unique sport & skill because it is learned. We all remember what it was like and are eager to encourage other beginners.
  2. Rocket-boost your Dancing. Try out all the new moves you learned on your lessons this week. Repetition is the key to learning and you can maximize your lessons while you are having fun. You got some great new steps or techniques and with a little practice not only will you solidify them and make them more comfortable, but for our go-getters this will help you move onto learning new moves and setting new dance goals faster! table
  3.  Feel the excitement of Progress!  Mastering the moves you have been working on gives you a great boost of achievement and self-esteem. Being able to dance your moves in a comfortable environment gives you the confidence to try your moves with dancers of different skill levels. See what moves are working and which ones need work. After the party, when you have your next lesson, you can let your teacher in on the excitement you felt with your progress and some of the areas that you would like to see improvement!
  4. Experience the Miracle of Ballroom Dancing. Communicating with a partner through the miracle of dance(Lead/Follow) is one of the most amazing and magnificient joys of ballroom dancing. Dancing with lots of different people gives you a chance to experience many leads and follows and perfect your own. Other dancers are like a mirror to ourselves. Dancing with many partners helps you to feel, or see, how your lead/follow is working so that you can become a better dancer. If you continuously dance with one person, you can actually adapt to each others bad habits, or only become comfortable dancing with them. For those of you that have a special someone, improving your lead or follow by dancing with others helps make you a better dancer for them (note you will always feel best dancing with that special someone).
  5. Feel the Joy of Ballroom Dancing. Last but not least and most importantly, you take the thinking out of learning and feel the joy of Dancing. As with learning many types of artistic skills, playing the right keys on the piano is not enough…it’s how you play the notes. It’s letting go and allowing the music to come from deep within you. You know when you are comfortable with a step when you no longer have to think hard about dancing it….when you can just simply express the joy of dancing!!

We hope you have had a chance to Experience Ballroom! If not, please contact National Dance Clubs to schedule your first lesson today! No partner, skill, or experience necessary. Anyone can learn to dance.

Why Ballroom? Because the clothes are Fabulous !!!

The Glamour, the glitter, the elegance…

Irresistible!!

Welcome to our dress croppedseries on why ballroom dance!! We are so excited to share all the reasons ballroom dancing is the Best activity out there. Follow along to hear of the many benefits and all the excitement of ballroom dancing! Please feel free to share your own stories, as we would love to hear them!


Why Ballroom? Because it gives us a wonderful excuse rhythmto look amazing! Let’s face it, after Prom the only reason we really have to dress up is maybe a wedding ….and those are infrequent. Between kids, job, and life it becomes harder to find a good reason to look and feel great.

As ballroom dancers though, we get to do it ALL THE smoothTIME! In dancing there is always a party, or show, or competition to dress up for. We get to see men looking handsome in their black latin shirts and pants, or a fitted tuxedo and ladies shining in their ball gowns, or rhythm dresses!

What a wonderful problem it is to need a big closet….to have a reason to have a selection of evening wear, formal wear, and ballroom dresses or suits….to have a reason to get fancy.

The best part about it is the way it makes you feel. When you take the time to wear something that makes you feel great, spend time selecting your hair, make-up, jewelry, or accessories, and then stand back in admiration you get a boost of self-esteem and joy! Ballroom is classy, sophisticated, elegant and sexy and so is the sensation you get when you dress that way!

Why Ballroom? Because it Feels so Good!

Why do we love ballroom?  We love it because it feels so good. Ballroom Dancing refreshes your body, your mind, and your soul giving you a healthier, happier, and more peaceful life.

  1. Your body– Dancing is the study on how to move your body correctly. Regular dancing is the maintenance your joints and muscles need to work at its maximum potential.  As the saying goes “You can either rust out, or wear out.” I prefer the later.old-rusty-car
  2. Your mind– Taking a moment to focus on something else reduces stress and provides clarity. Dancing is a mood elevator and just simply makes you happy. The short term effects of dancing on the mind are related to mood and satisfaction, while the long term effects are related to discipline and memory. According the The New England Journal of medicine,  regularly engaging in social dancing lowered the seniors’ risk of dementia by a staggering 76%. alzheimers
  3. Your soul– Ballroom dancing allows us to connect to the deepest parts of ourselves and others. Whether you want to feel youthful, relaxed, energetic, sensual, happy, or even sad, angry, or strong…..moving to music taps into our deepest selves which can only be described as Freedomfreedom

Over the years, a popular question is always asked… “What is your favorite dance?” For me the answer has always been, “It depends on how I FEEL that day.”  You see, dancing has that magical ability to connect you to your emotions. You have the choice to choose a dance based on expressing the emotions you are currently experiencing, or the ability to change the dance and feel something else. Whether you are getting “a breath of fresh air” by doing something physical or connecting to a more relaxed state, dancing gives you the ability to recharge, rejuvenate, and walk away refreshed.dance-quotes-8

Why Ballroom Dance? It’s a Fun way to Lose Weight!!!

Welcome to our series on why ballroom dance!! We are so excited to share all the reasons ballroom dancing is the Best activity out there. Follow along to hear many of the many benefits and all the excitement of ballroom and feel free to share your own stories!! We would love to hear them.

Lesson_0018

 

Why Ballroom? What better way to Lose Weight and get in shape than one that you don’t even have to work at!!!!! Dancing is a fun and exciting activity that is aerobic and anaerobic. Which means you get your heart rate up and build muscles all at the same time…. and the absolute best part about it is that you are enjoying yourself so much that is never something you HAVE to do…. it’s something you WANT to do! Imagine dropping 2 pants sizes just because you are having FUN!!! That’s my kind of weight loss!

 

According to WEBMD

  •  Dancing is a whole-body workout that’s actually fun.
  • It’s good for your heart, it makes you stronger, and it will help with balance and coordination.
  • Dancing can be a high-or low-impact workout
  • Dancing improves your heart health, joint mobility, strength, balance/coordination, and an overall sense of well-being, making dance good for most everyone.
  • A 30-minute dance class burns between 130 and 250 calories, about the same as jogging.

 

scaleThat means if I completely enjoy myself with an hour dance lesson, I could eat 500 calories without any guilt, or eat great and be lighter on the scale in the morning!!! Fabulous!

 

Time magazine says “People who took dance class improved their fitness three times more than non-dancers.” The dance group in the study done by the American Heart Association had not only more mobility but faster improvement than the non-dance group.

As a dancer myself, I believe that these results are attributed to the fact that dancing is so good for your body and so absolutely enjoyable. I honestly can not remember what I did for fun before I learned to dance. Nothing even comes close to the wonderful memories I have from dancing and how great it makes you look and feel inside and out!

Why Ballroom? It’s the Best Hobby!

Welcome to our series on why ballroom dance!! We are so excited to share all the reasons ballroom dancing is the Best activity out there. Follow along to hear many of the many benefits and all the excitement of ballroom and feel free to share your own stories!! We would love to hear them.

cropped-Lessons.jpg

Why Ballroom Dance?… One of the best reasons to ballroom dance is because of the wonderful hobby it provides. Let me explain… A good hobby is defined as a regular activity that is done for enjoyment, typically during one’s leisure time but a GREAT hobby provides so much more than that.

 

*Hobbies have been shown to make you happy.

When people do things that make them feel good, like a hobby, it activates an area of the brain called the nucleus accumbens that controls how we feel about life, said Dr. Ausim Azizi, chairman of the department of neurology at Temple University’s School of Medicine in Philadelphia, . Activities you enjoy also stimulate the brain’s septal zone and that makes you feel happy, said Azizi.

*Hobbies help you create and think clearly

Hobbies can enhance your creativity, help you think more clearly and sharpen your focus, said Carol Kauffman, an assistant clinical professor at Harvard Medical School. “When you’re really engaged in a hobby you love, you lose your sense of time and enter what’s called a flow state, and that restores your mind and energy,” she said.

*Hobbies give you self-esteem and confidence

Dr. Gabriela Corá, a psychiatrist who is managing partner of the Florida Neuroscience Center and president of Executive Health and Wealth Institute, an executive coaching firm in Miami said, “Making time for enjoyable activities stimulates parts of the brain associated with creative and positive thinking. You become emotionally and intellectually more motivated.” 

Ballroom dancing provides people of all ages and skill levels just that. When there is “nothing to do” you can always go dancing. Whether you move the coffee table in the living room or go find any place that music is playing, ballroom dancing is something you can enjoy anywhere or anytime. When the “ever popular” dinner and a movie gets old or.. adds to many pounds to your waist, ballroom gives people a better way to connect and losing pounds while having fun is not a bad side effect either. When you need a break to clear your mind, a great hobby like Ballroom Dancing can give you the perfect refresher to re-energize and re-motivate yourself.
