“I can’t dance, I have two left feet”

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on “I can’t dance, I have two left feet”

“The problem is, I have two left feet, I can’t dance”.

If you are one of those people who can’t even count the number of times they have uttered these words, try telling yourself another story and see what happens.

The biggest block to people who think they have two left feet is their mind. Our minds are very powerful over our bodies and when our minds tell us we can’t do something, our bodies listen. The good news is that the opposite is true. Simply changing your mind, can unleash the dancer inside you and ignite your inherent ability to dance and move to music.

Simply by changing the story your mind tells your body, will change your ability to dance. Instead of saying, “I have two left feet” or that “I can’t dance”, try saying something more positive like “I can dance”. If this is too much of a stretch, how about something like, “Maybe I can’t dance very well, but who cares, I enjoy it and will do it anyway”.

I actually gave this to a wedding couple as a homework assignment. The groom kept telling me he couldn’t dance. I asked him to stop himself every time he said this to himself. The results were incredible. In a short amount of time, he was of course able to dance with his bride beautifully on their wedding day. He was no Fred Astaire but he danced and he dance pretty well.

Plus, what does it really mean to be a good dancer?

I like this quote by renowned dancer and choreographer Martha Graham, “Nobody cares if you can’t dance well. Just get up and dance. Great dancers are great because of their passion.”

Be careful what your mind says because your body is listening. If you love to move to music, don’t let false illusory thoughts stop you from the experiencing the joy of dance. Step into the dancer you already are!

Your wedding dance – a few first dance song suggestions

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Your wedding dance – a few first dance song suggestions

Here are a few song suggestions for your first dance for your wedding, some of which my students have used. Most are ballads which YES you can use for your wedding dance and even have a fully choreographed routine to. Of course you can also do a traditional ballroom dance like a waltz or foxtrot, even a latin dance like a rumba.  I think you can combine dance styles too. Your wedding dance choreographer will be able to give you choreography to any song you choose and will ensure you look and feel fantastic. It is your special day and I believe the song you select should reflect you as a couple, your personalities and simply be a song you both enjoy.  Happy dancing!

To get started on your wedding dance choreography, we have a specialized Wedding Dance Workshop coming up: May 11  or June 8.
