Learning How to Dance In Your Garage
April 25, 2022
So you want to be a dancer, huh? You’ve probably seen a lot of cool kids in school dance to the delight of a crowd. You get amazed by their confidence, grace, and swag that when you got home, you searched for dance videos online. Not long after, your search bars recommended videos, and reels on social media are all filled with dance videos. Or you’re probably a big fan of hip hop or K-pop stars. Not only do you listen to their songs, but you also watch music videos and performances on stage. That’s when the urge to dance along with them came. You did not only want to sing along because doing the dance choreography seemed so much fun too. Or it could be you like going to parties and having fun dancing while under the booze. You wonder what it’s like to be good at dancing for once. Or to dance confidently without the need for alcohol. Or you most likely got hooked on Tiktok, scrolling for hours on end and just watching one dance video to another. You get amazed by the dancers you watch there and want to follow the steps yourself. Whatever your reason for wanting to dance, the problem presents itself to you as a big hindrance. Your whole body is awkward. Whatever you do, you just look like a laughing matter that you don’t want anyone to see you dance. You try all these Tiktok dances by yourself or even level up with K-pop choreography, but every time you watch the dance video after, all you could do is cringe. You wonder why you even want to dance in the first place. In case you don’t know, dancing is a mindfulness exercise. For you to follow steps more quickly and easily, you have to be focused on the choreography that you are doing. Your mind shouldn’t be floating and you should be all-in with your body, letting it move freely to its own beat. As said, dancing is also a form of exercise. It depends on what type of dance you are doing to categorize what type of exercise it is or what specific parts do your dance sessions target. It increases your heart rate promoting healthy blood flow. It uplifts your mood and relieves your mind from stress. Dancing is not about impressing other people because if that is your goal, you might easily just drop it as a hobby when other people don’t validate your dancing. Dancing is more of being attuned with your body and mind, letting it go while you dance to the beat of your own music. If you’re really a shy person but want to learn how to dance, the key is to start at home. You can do so in a secluded area if you want some privacy. The problem is if you don’t have space anymore in your bedroom or you share one with your sister, there is no other space at home for you to do your dance practices. Until you remember that there is a lot of space in the garage covered by clutter. You ask your parents nicely if you can clean it up so you can hopefully, quietly do your practices there. Install smart storage solutions such as overhead storage racks and wall shelves so that you’ll be able to maximize the ceiling space for storage and the floor space for the family vehicle and your many hobbies. Here is how you can get started practicing dance while at home.
