If you want to learn how to dance, but you avoided it over the years for various reasons, you may have wondered how long it would take for you to become a good dancer. Who much time does it take until you’re dancing naturally with any music you hear?
There are a lot of factors that go into answering that question. It takes time and effort, and it depends upon you to make it happen.
Defining a Good Dancer
Different people appreciate different types of dance and consider them “good.” Some people simple define it has having confidence and sex appeal on the dance floor. Some people recognize those excellent techniques. Becoming a good dancer depends on you and your goals. Perhaps you want others to find you attractive on the dance floor, or maybe you want to be a great partner, or leader.
To Get There
Whatever your preference, you need motivation. You have to be motivated enough to start, and then keep coming back for more lessons. Perhaps you have an event at which you need to be able to dance, and that motivates you. You might have a friend with whom you want to take lessons. Maybe you want to help your weight loss along. The more goals you have, the stronger your motivation.
With this motivation, you need commitment. It’s like anything else you want, or need to learn in life; you need to practice it often. If you come to a dance lesson once every so often, you will learn some useful things. To be a truly good dancer, you need to make it a regular part of your life and come more often. You will reach your goals much faster, and be much better.
Steady instruction is essential. Your drive must be as good as your teacher. You need to find a dance instructor with enough experience, someone whom you trust, and who will be there for you as long as you are motivated to continue and become as good as you want to be. Whatever your level, you need a teacher to accommodate your drive.
Talent never hurts, of course. But, you don’t have to have natural talent in spades. Dancing is a skill; it’s learned, and with the right amount of drive and motivation, and a great teacher, you can discover in yourself what may not come naturally. You can come to dance in ways that make it seem like you dance well naturally. If you don’t have natural ability, don’t let that hold you back at all.
In the end, there is no truly definable amount of time in which you will become a good dancer. It all depends upon you. Each person is different; what it takes to become a good dancer and how much time will vary. You will not know until you find out, and you should.
