So what exactly do we get from this class……formerly known as rungodance, soon to be ‘something’ else. Who cares really, what it’s called? What the heck is it good for? Well frankly I have amazed myself as how nicely my students have progressed. I have taken non-dancing people and created a sense of coordination and fluidity, I tell ya, I have been amazed.
It’s easy to learn the ballroom dances in this format; all of them. I use all the rhythms in my class from Foxtrot to Salsa and Bolero to Zydeco and anything else you can think of! It’s a must experience kind of thing! The class imposes such movement and demand that the participant disengages the mind and the thinker (always the culprit ) and gives the body a chance to move and grove to the beat and rhythm. Ladies follow and learn to WAIT for the cue before they move and men do the same as for the key to any good leader is to be a great FOLLOWER (one secret out!).
Calories burned equal any where from 300 to 600, depending on the energy out put. Sweat, yes you will sweat and use every muscle in the body. Stretch, yes you will stretch and gain flexibility if not on purpose, by accident.
Your relationship with music will be enhanced NO MATTER WHAT. Your understanding and predictability of music will get better and better. I have seen NON music people actually develop a sensitivity and awareness to the music. It’s really all about the music.
