Learning Multiple Dances: Incorporating Smoothness

As instructors, we often get asked, “Wouldn’t it be better to learn one dance really well before going on to another?” The simple answer is no. Learning one dance at a time is hardest and slowest way to learn.

For example, each dance needs an element of smoothness. The best dance to accomplish smoothness is the Foxtrot. You might become a smooth dancer in Foxtrot in as little as four hours, but to accomplish this in Swing might take ten hours or more. But the smoothness you develop in Foxtrot will automatically make your Swing and all your other dances feel better.
