How to dance in a club-The most important points to know

It is not rare to find people who do not know how to dance in a club and yet so many how to dance in a clubpeople enjoy going to one.

If you came to this post I am sure you are keen on going to a club and if not you have been thinking of going there.

It is not shameful to go to a club, because most of us have gone to one  at some point in their lives.

It will be my honor to share  with you some times to keep in mind when you are thinking of going to a club and deciding to dance there (whether accidentally or planned).

The scene

how to dance in a club

So when it comes to how to dance in a club it all depends on the scene or type of club you are going to.

There are different types of clubs so it is vital to know how to conduct yourself depending on the type.

Office party kind club

Suppose you go to a club that is very formal and is organised by your job

In this type of club setting you should bare in mind that you are with your colleagues or more importantly your bosses.

This will make you more cautious and guide your steps.

On this setting you will want to dance in a more appropriate way while still being yourself ofcourse.

This could include doing some small and medium movements such as sway from side to side with your glass of champagne or juice.

Below is a video that you can use as a reference on what I am talking about.

These may be funny but they do give the points.

Proper club setting

You could also par-take in a normal club where you and your friends go out .

These clubs can either full of vibe or not, it just depends.

Here, however I will be talking about any sort of part, from house party all the way to that which you go to at night.

The scene for this club is normally very relaxed and to a large extent everyone tend to be care-free.

This type of party tend to be for the socialites and they tend to thrive a lot here.

Anyhow this type of club does not have any restrictions for dancing as it is a relaxed environment.

Over here you can do whatever but as long as it is in rhthym with the music. Fore example you can not do ballroom dancing while it is house music.

You will not only be the laughed at but you will spoil the mood of people who came to have fun (unless you are in a party with your friends just having fun).

Remember the setting is vital, so if you want ballroom or hip hop or tap dancing just know that there are many places fr that.

If you are looking for dance moves that you can apply to this kind of club are some videos that you can use as reference.

For men

For women

Jazz festivals events

As the name suggest these types of clubs are very jazzy and tend to have a relaxed atmosphere.

The dancing does not have to be hectic however you can still dance freely.

I wouldn’t say there are restrictions besides just looking at how the atmosphere is and follow that.

Jazz festivals do not have much requirements as people do not really dance and you can just sway from side to side while clapping.


I hope that the above videos did help you with knowing some moves.

Dancing with a partner

if you are intend on going to the club with your partner or happen to meet someone you feel like dancing with, there are also some tips you can follow.

Just remember when you are dancing with someone it will be a bit hard to want to execute your own moves.

In essence you just have to lead the partner for this.

below is a video that you can follow as a reference.

Now that you know that the scene is more important let us continue with other important points.


Learning how to dance in a club will have everything to do with the type of music the DJ decides to put.

This will definitely decide what mood of dance moves you embrace.

For instance if you attend a jazz type of event you must be sure that the dJ will not be putting hectic music that will require you to move a lot.

So it is vital to remember the scene of the club you are going to because this will guide you as to the type of music you can expect to get.

Do not over drink

This has to be the most important point of “how to dance in a club” that you need to drill in your head.

Over drinking in a club can have a very negative outcome to your experience in a club.

This is because when you very drunk you will tend to loose your coordination of your body.

This will make you end up dancing uncontrollably and can even hit people on the dance floor.

In fact I know a friend of mine who got stabbed in a club just because he danced and hit someones girlfriend all due to over drinking.

This is the reason you need to learn to drink lightly in any club you go to.

Respect those around you

When you are dancing in any club scene just make sure you are mindful of people around you who are dancing too.

This can seem obvious but trust me when you are on cloud 9 and a bit tipsy you end up forgetting there are people to be respected.

As I mentioned a story about my friend who got stabbed this is why this point is vital.

If you are also dancing with a strange just always keep your wits about you because these dances there are many people who have bad intentions especially in clubs.

Final thoughts

Dancing in a club is many points you have to be wary of such as the scene and music of that particular club.

Knowing these few basic points can go a long way in helping you enjoy your club experience and that is what we all want.

Remember going to a club is about going to have fun so let loose and just remember these simple and easy tips and you will be just fine.

I hope this article was helpful in addressing the issue of how to dance in a club for you.

If you have any comments, questions or suggestions you are more than welcome to pop me a comment below and I will be more then happy to respond and chat or help.




Dance schools in Durban-Your ultimate dance guide

So you are a newbie in the city and are looking for dance schools in Durban to kick off your dance career or maybe just continue dancing.

Rest assured because I have you covered here.

Having been a professional dancer myself for a decade and a half, in Durban and South Africa, I have all the information you are looking for.

I know how hard it can be to find a great dancing school to fulfil your needs so that is why I wrote this article to help you.

I have compiled for you the best dance schools around Durban that are reputable and offer the best service.

All these schools can help you become a professional dancer. Let’s start.

Dance Direction International

dance schools in Durban

Are you looking for a dance schools in Durban which has many genres well Dance Direction International could be a good fit for you.

This dance school has been operational since the 90s and developed by Des Van der Spuy and Debby Tomlinson

What is more Debby was sparked by opening a branch in London for Dance Direction International.

This is what lead to the Dance Directional International being international.

What they offer

They offer the following dance genres:

What is more is that they offer gym classes.

So if you are looking for classes which merely involve fitness or perhaps you want to add more fitness for your dance career than you could be benefit from this.

Remember on my article I did talk about the importance of dance workouts as a dancer.

Below are the gym classes they offer

  • Stretch and posture
  • Cardio work
  • Dancercise
  • Body conditioning


Dance Direction International has branches in two countries (South Africa and London)

I will list the locations of Places where they are located.

  • Durban, Glenwood
  • London

The main location is the one that is in Durban, Glenwood.


Below are the things I liked about this dance company:

  • Fully operational online

Dance Direction International has a very operational website which looks very presentable.

This makes it easier to gain trust since you can contact them easily.

You can find them on there website:

  • Has been in the market for long time

As I mentioned before this company has been in operation for more than a decade.

This shows how much of a reputation this company has in the dancing industry.

  • Has many genres

The company has many dance styles as I mentioned above.

  • Affiliations

The great thing about this company is affiliated with many  such as the SA Society for the Advancement of Dance in Durban (SASAD)

It is also affliated with The Durban DDI branch is affiliated to IAAASA (Acrobatic Society based in Pretoria)


These were the disadvantages I derived from this company.

  • No Ballroom and Latin American classes

For people looking for ballroom and Latin American dancing this company does not specialize in it.

  • No krump dance

For all the Krump enthuist this company does not offer these classes as well so you are better off checking out other studios.




Looking for dance schools in Durban which offer Salsa?

Well look no further because I have you covered with a school I recommend called Dance Salsa which is also known as HotSalsa

Again this is a company with more than a decade of experience in the dance industry, especially more specifically in Salsa.

What they offer

Hotsalsa offers merely salsa lessons as I have mentioned above.


HotSalsa is located in Musgrave, Durban and as far as my knowledge goes they do not have any branches elsewhere.

They do however have a restaurant which they operate so if you do not feel like doing the Salsa you can go to their restaurant and order yourself pizza and perhaps ask for some salsa lessons.


  • They have a restaurant

In combination of  salsa lessons you can have yourself a pizza..ha ha jokes.

  • Specialize in Salsa

The great thing about HotSalsa being focused on salsa is that they can give you a very specialized and best service.

  • Fully operation online

You can find this company online as well on:


  • One genre

To people looking for different styles such as tap, hip hop or ballroom they will not benefit.

  • One location

There is only one location in and around Durban and they do not have branches internationally.

  • Owners or founders not mentioned

Owners of this company are not mentioned on the website which can be hard to get that trust element for a customer.


Sherherzade Belly Dance Studio


Are you looking for dance schools in Durban which offer belly dancing?
Then this dance school could assist you.

What they offer

As you might have guessed they mostly offer belly dancing and which is modern and also accommodates old styles.


This dance studio is located in Berea, Durban and the address is The Breathing Space, Glenwood, Durban, 4083.


  • Specialist in  Belly dancing for all ages.
  • Has a lot of good or positive reviews from customers.


  • No presence online

Unfortunately this dance company does not have a website to go to. There is only a telephone number.

This is their current telephone: 031 201 8004

How to become a professional dancer- The most important things to know

If you are looking on how to become a professional dancer then this article will give you how to become a professional dancersome great information.

The fact is that the majority of dancers start off by wanting to be professional or famous dancers.

Unfortunately many of these dancers end up quitting without reaching these goals.

Why is this so?

This is because they lack the essentials needed to reach that level.

This is why I will help you not become a statistic who does not reach their goals.

how to become a professional dancer

Sit comfortably and let me quickly tell you how to become a professional dancer the easiest way.

Be multiskilled

This right here is a big and very important aspect of how to become a professional dancer.

So what do I mean by being multi skilled in dancing?how to become a professional dancer

Well I mean you have to know other styles of dancing, not focus on one genre.

This is because when you want to become a professional dancer then you will normally be called to perform on dance shows, boat cruises, dinner events, you name it.

So if you do not have the skill to be versatile and entertain the audience you will likely fail to get gigs which will bring in money.

Remember being professional means you are earning a full time income from or at least 50{14175b1f95d0f0faa387c4f6ed17908f179b141bfe6cf26d34224cd7cbf4f8b7} of your income from dancing.

This is the reason I say you will loose gigs (basically your income)..sad right? so you want to polish your skills.

As a professional ballroom dancer I am normally being called to perform or coach since that is what people expect from me.

Below is a video where i was called to perform at a dance show.

Have a good mentor

This is yet another very important factor to consider if you are really looking on how to become a professional dancer.

I really put great emphasis on the word “good”.

This is because you must  choose a mentor that has  gone through where you are looking to go.

This because if you go for a mentor , especially the one who has gone through your journey, will help you go through things which will make your path shorter.

I have been lucky to have had two mentors in my dance career, my dad and my first dance coach.

This helped me acquire the skills that i know have.


Hard work is not enough for achieving your goal but what is very important is that you need to apply more of disciplined actions.

You must have goals always

The more you are constant with applying the advice of your dancing  from your mentor and knowledge of the dance industry the better you will reach your goal of becoming a professional dancer.

If you have read my posts you should know how important I value having goals as a dancer.

Look for and be ready for opportunities

There are so many opportunities out there for being a professional dancers as I mentioned before so it is your responsibility to lookout for them.

Just be sure to always speak to your mentor about an opportunity that you think of taking ( it is only right to do as he or she is your guiding light).

Over the years I have seen a lot of my friends getting opportunities because of their hard work.

To most of them the opportunity presented itself to them.

One of my fellow dance friends got an opportunity to go dance for a big American dance TV show called dancing With The Stars (DWTS).

Below is a video oh him:

Has has been performing and rocking the stages abroad and I am truly proud of him because he had a mentor and was very consistent.

Below is a video where he is actually performing.

He is one of the people I know who are doing well on the big stages and I have learnt a lot from him to say the least because he is a South African.

Have long term plan

Let’s face it dancing fulltime professional can be very risky.

This more so if you do not have a proper plan for what you are doing.

It is said that most most ballet dancers end up not being professional due to the competition and also not being consistant.

I am not saying expect to not reach your goal.

All I am saying is that also bare in mind what you can do to ensure your dancing money can last you forever.

This is where you need to particulate in other dance avenues which can slightly bring in the income.

This is what one of our South Africa dance fellow is doing while she is dancing abroad, Otlile Mabuse.

Otlile is participating in various things which help her not only bring in the money, but establish herself in the dance industry.

Below is a video of one of her dance shows:

Embrace the risk

You should always be ready for the unexpected through your journey to becoming  a professional dancer.

Remember most dance styles have become a sport. The one example of this is ballroom how to become a professional dancerand Latin American dancing which has become a sport.

You can check out an article about this by reading here.

So what does it mean that dance is a sport?

Well this means that you are prone to injuries so it means you must at least know  how to cover yourself.

This also means that getting injured right before a big event or competition can jeopardize most peoples’ dance career.

By the way I have seen a lot of people getting into such situations which when they were about to get their big break.

This is what makes a difference between being a professional full time dancer and just failing,

Final thoughts

being in a quest of how to become a professional dancer  can leave you confused but if you have the right guidance and information you can achieve this feat which most people never achieve.

Most people end up not reaching the professional level as they either do not have mentor, don not look for opportunities or are not consistent.

Most professionals have gone through a lot to get to where they want to be because they were prepared.

But more than being prepared you need to have passion for what you are doing.

Remember passion for your dance genre will make you go through hurdles which most people will not through.

I hope this article was helping to you and I hope it gave you a guideline to become a professional dancer.

The flat belly fix review-The shocking truth about this!!

Today I will be doing the flat belly fix review for all of the people looking for a way to loose weight while training.Flat belly fix review

I am sure most people who do ballroom dancing or any sort of sport with the aim of getting fit and loose weight.

I did talk about the importance of using dancing for loosing weight on my previous post.

In this post, however I will be checking out the flat belly fix program to see if it will work.

Especially if you are looking to use it with any other activity like ballroom dancing to loose weight.

I would like to first and foremost congratulate you for doing research about a program like this in order to see if it is real or not.

Most people just buy programs without researching and end up regretting it afterwards.

Knowing this about you I will ensure to give you a through review. All you have to do is just pay attention.

Without wasting your time let’s get right into it.

What is the flat belly fix program?

I will start the flat belly fix review by  describing a few concepts about what the program is and who the founders are.

This is a weight loss program that has been created by an individual who had the desire to Flat belly fix reviewhelp his wife recover from her weight problem.

His wife had tried a lot of programs and medication to loose weight but despite all her efforts she failed.

I will not describe the whole story to you because there is a video you can watch over >>here<<

Basically he ended up coming up with a solution which dramatically helped his wife lose weight drastically in a matter of  21 days.

This is the reason the author of the program has so much faith in selling the idea to the reader or the viewer that they can loose weight drastically in 21 days.

The program is claimed to have worked for most people according to the author and he also says people who have tried it have never failed to get results.

What is more, the program promises that the secret in the program is very easy for any dieter to use and it will not cost a lot.

But we will talk about that later on. For now let us see who the authors of the program are.

About the author

There is only one author or developer for the flat belly fix program.

The author of the program is Todd Lamb.

…So who the heck is Todd? you may be asking. Gladly for you I have done a lot of research to find out who this guy really is.

Flat Belly fix review
Todd Lamb

Todd Lamb, from Canada, was once a police officer, a former lead for the Greater Victoria Emergency Response.

Todd was also previously Vice president of the Saanich Police association in 2014, which makes him a very popular police officer.

He also served at the Saanich’s police dive team and also at their dog unit.

He was previously under fire when he produced a program (for fitness improving) which Flat belly fix reviewpromised men they would improve their body at the time, while he was an officer.

This was seen unfit since it was contravening with his job as a police officer at the time.

If you want to see the video where he was in the media you can check it out >>here<<

All in all Todd Lamb is a real person so you should rest assured of this fact.

He has also been in the fitness industry for a very long term, more than 4 years as described above with a program he developed previously.

Now let’s see what you will get when you purchase the program, shall we?


What are the features of the program

The program has many features which I consider normal for most fitness or wellness programs.

However the program has added a twist ( which I found very unique)

At a very low cost to you they offer more than what other programs I have checked offer.

Most programs will give you their core product which is in the form of a PDF or ebook and then a series of dvds for the main component.

For the flat belly fix program they give you more for the price of one.

The following items are what you get:

  • The 21 day systemthe flat belly fix review
  • The 7-minute flat belly Protocol
  • The smoothie recipe guide.

Let us explore just a little bit about each of these.

Bare in mind that I will not go in depth because it will be unfair to give you full details about something you have not bought.

Let’s start with the first one shall we?

  • The 21 day system

As the name says it works on producing results in 21 days.

This part of the program is the main component of the flat belly fix.

  • The 7 minute flat belly Protocol

This is a very simple version of a diet step by step book. The book has a list of rules and steps that you must know and follow to achieve your outcome.

Overall the program uses and gives you many ingredients that you can buy from your local grocery store and use it.

What i like about the program

the flat belly fix review

  • Has many unique items compare to other programs


  • Affordable

flat belly fix review

This goes without saying for what you get with the low price.

  • More valuable for money

For the price one what you would get for one item in another weight-loss program you get 3 here.

  • Author is authentic

I love the fact that the author is someone I can see online and is an actual person (Todd Lamb).

Most program I have seen are just faces of “people” which you can’t get a record of online.

  • Many raving reviews online

The amazing thing about this program is that many people are giving positive feed backs about their use, which is a good thing.

  • Uses natural ingredients

The program uses natural ingredients which is a great thing because there will be no side effects on using the product

  • Ingriedients can be found at your local shop

This is by far the best aspect about this program that you will not have to incur more costs just to get the ingredients.

  • Author has industry experience

Todd, as I said before, has created some few fitness and health programs such as Specforce Alpha program.

What I do not like about the program

the flat belly fix

  • Not user-friendly

The steps to follow the program can be somewhat confusing for a person who likes to be given proper rules to achieve their target.

  • No physical productthe flat belly fix review

You do not get any physical product so that can be somewhat a negative for people who like using physical products,

  • Electronic copy

The program only has an electronic copy.

  • Slightly far-fetched to a degree

The main thing about this program is the need to tell people they can loose belly fat quick which is misleading.

  • Hidden upsells

The program has further upsells once you buy the main program.

I am not concerned that they merely have upsells I am just concerned that the upsells of this program are just too many.

Imagine the program has 4 upsells which includes online coaching trial and yoga just to name a few.

For me this is excessive and I firmly believe you can just be fine with the main program.

If you, however need guidance and mentoring then the coaching upsell can probably be  a good fit for you.

Try the Flat Belly fix on discount here!!

The final verdict

The flat belly fix program is a weight-loss program that focuses on using unique and natural products.

The program promises big results over a very short time (21 days) which I would not 100{14175b1f95d0f0faa387c4f6ed17908f179b141bfe6cf26d34224cd7cbf4f8b7} agree with.

You see, I am a person who grew up knowing that you need to put in hard work to get amazing results no matter what you are involved in.

Sure there are outliers who may achieve this ,but for most people it is very hard.

This is the reason that will make some people end up saying the program doesn’t work since they are expecting quick results.

All in all the program does work but people should not expect to achieve the flat belly as quick as the program suggests.

This is because people will get different results depending on their work ethic or effort and other factors.

Also this is where coaching comes in. If you are like most people you may not be disciplined enough and will end up needing coaching.

This is why the program has a coaching upsell for you.

At the end of the day you can decide if the flat belly fix is for you or not, but for me I would recommend it.

This is because it is a very viable solution to tackle your belly fat or weight in a natural and cheap way.

Especially so since the program is very genuine and you can likely contact the person should you have problems along the way.

I hope the flat belly fix review was very useful to you to knowing whether it is genuine or not.

As always I make sure to review programs which can help myself and the community on this website.

If you have any comments or questions about this program please leave them below, I will  be more than happy to respond to you.




Dance lessons-why they are important

Dancing will require many things from you some of which are important while others may not be. Dance lessons are one vital aspect of being a top dancer.Ballroom dancing

Most people do not understand the reason why dance lessons do exist and how they can be important for your growth.

In this article I will be talking about the importance of dance lessons and also how to maximize them well.

Dance lessons types

There are three different types of dance lessons that exist  in the dance world such as group lessons, private lessons, social lessons.

Let’s explore these different types below:

Private dance lessons

On my article about the best way to learn ballroom dancing I did talk about the importance of private lessons to improve your dancing rapidly.

Private lessons are when you are getting a one on one attention from you dance lesons

These kinds of dance lessons are usually more expensive than group dance lessons just because of the resources that are put  in to improve the person or the couple’s dancing.

One thing to understand about private lessons is that they differ according to the coach that you go to.

For an example if you go to a coach who is at an international level their cost will be higher than a coach who has only won local dance competitions.

The cost of the international coaches can go up to $150 per 45 minutes….

Yep that’s right and I am just being conservative here, because others do not play games.

Bear in mind that they have gone through a lot of pain in order to be at the top so basically you will get what you pay for.

Ever since I started danced I have been coached by the top coaches and so for me this is a normal price.

I have also seen many people take dancing notes when doing private lessons and this is the benefit of these types of dance lessons.

A student writing in a notebook during a dance lessons

Oh by the way, before I forget… this is by far the type of dance lessons which I would recommend for you if you want to grow in your competitive dancing.

Social dance lessons

dance lessons

Social dance lessons are dance lessons for the art part of dancing or social part as the name says.

This type of dance lesson does not require you to really be very focused to be the best since the aim is for short-term.

However, I still have to warn you that if you want to start and take social dance lessons they will still cost and arm and a leg.


But do not fret for these dance lessons since they may not be strict and even if you do miss practice it may not be a big deal since you are socializing with it.



Group dance  lessons

dance lessons

Group dance lessons can fall under the category of both the private lesson and social dance lessons.

This is because it possess the features of both the categorizes:

In one aspect you can really get to socialize in this type of dancing where you mean different people.

It is also considered important for competitive dancing which you get information with a group of fellow dancers.

This helps because you can analyze with your fellow members and discuss things you did not know that others did.

Why plan for your dance lessons?

It is very important for every dancer to plan for their dance lessons.

This is because  your dancing should be like a business of some kind…In fact it is a business..

Be careful of the slow crumpling

This is because if you do not improve your business or learn the new market improvements than your business will slowly crumple.

This is the same with your dancing. Dancing is improving every year or every week as people are constantly finding new ways to move across the flow effortlessly.

If you do not believe that dancing is improving constantly go back and look at ballroom dancing in the past and you will see the advancement it has taken.

I will show you two videos. One will be in the 90s while the other will be recent.

Check the videos below:

1.Ballroom in the 90s


2. Ballroom in the 21st century


As you can see the two videos are very different: The video above shows that dancing was more compact and rigid and the style of the dresses was very poor.

The second video, however has more dynamics, style,colour..basically more life.

So you can imagine a person who is still teaching the style of 90s and teaching students compared to the one who has kept up with the current dance styles.

The one who has kept up with information will surely do way better as he or she will know what the adjudicators want currently.

I would say if you have not considered taking dance lessons as a competitor from higher level teachers than what I have just said should convince you to take lessons especially private lessons.

You have much more to gain

What I have found about taking dance lessons, especially private lessons is that you end up finding out the newest styles or costumes of dancing whether for practice or competing.

Speaking of practice attire I wrote an article about what I have learnt to wear for practice as this follows current international levels.

This has made a huge improvement in my dancing since practice makes me feel on top of the world.

You can check it out >>here<< if you are interested

Anyway commiciamo ;)..(that is Italian for Let’s continue)..

By taking private lessons you also end up finding out more inside techniques that most people will never get since you can ask all the questions indepthly.

Believe me or not the dance instructor will end up giving you more than what you have paid for because they will be scared that if you do not do well it will not sit will with them.

Remember you will represent what they teach you so that is why they will be helping you a lot.

Guys here I am talking about genuine instructors who are top level and who do their work professionally not those who do it half way.

Final thoughts

Dance lessons are to a dancer like oxygen is to human. So no dancer can reach the top without them.

As much as there are 3 types of dance lessons, namely: Private,group and social I would recommend focusing on private dance lessons especially for competitive dancing.

You will not only learn more about improving your dance but you will learn other things like what to wear and how to conduct yourself on the dance floor in  a private lesson.

Dance lessons are also vital so that you do not get left behind as dancing improves year by year.

If you have any comments or questions you want to ask please leave your comment on the section below, I will be more than happy to hear them.

Dance for weight loss- This is what they never tell you

Are you looking to lose weight easy?..and have you ever thought of using dance for weight dance for weight lossloss?

The truth is that many people are not aware that they can use dancing to lose weight.

This is because most of our lives we have been told you need to use a rigorous exercise like running or cycling to lose weight.

Contrary to popular belief dancing is the best way you can lose weight.

The key is knowing how to use this method effectively.

In this article I will walk you through on how you can use dance for weight loss.


dance for weight loss

If you are truly looking to use dance for weight loss this genre of dancing is very important.

In dancing there are two types of dancing :there is the classic and there is the hippy dance.

Both these genre making up the dancing world.

However if you are looking to lose weight than it is better you choose a more rigorous type of dancing.

This would be anything from Latin American dancing to hip hop and to something like cramp dancing.

I know you may be old to do all these genres but I wouldn’t think of any other genres to help you.

dance for weight loss

Look, you do not have to be young and fit to do these dances you can literally just stand and follow the instructor.

What is amazing now is that you can even do these at the comfort of your home these days with many online resources.

You can read it here


Should you do your dance weight loss at home or online?

Although there are many benefits in doing your dancing at home it may also be hectic since you may not be fully doing your workout.

If you go to a club you may have an instructor who will hold you accountable which is good for your improvement.

I did write about the benefits of joining a dancing club on my article called the best way to learn ballroom dancing.

This article will tell you more of the reason why you need to go to a physical club for your dancing.

More especially if you want to have long term dance goals.

Regulated dance times

Dancing, like any other activity requires you to give it full focus.

Most people think that jus because dancing seems social that it does not need a lot of effort.

This all depends on how you see dancing

Remember the best dance workout will always depend on the music that you prefer to the best dance workoutlisten to.

It is a popular phenomenon that younger people tend to opt for upbeat music

Some people prefer upbeat music of which they opt for rigorous dance work outs, while others opt for calm music which makes dance less intensive.

It is a popular phenomenon that younger people tend to opt for upbeat music and that is why most dancers opt for Latin America dancing against standard.


Age is also another huge factor which I mentioned above about choosing your dance workout.

Older people tend to be suited for classic kind of music which will still keep them working their bodies.

Types of dance workouts

On this section I will be talking about different workout which you can choose from based on the above aspects I gave you.

Dance workout

This for me has be the best dance workout for ballroom dancers.

This is because it is fun a pretty easy to do as an non-intensive workout.

Dance workout two-For cardio

Are you busy to workout for long hours?

Are you looking to make your hip more flexable?

If yo answered yes than this the best dance workout for you.

If you are only looking to make your hips flexible without dancing you can check out a very popular program I recommend.

I wrote a review about in in my article. You can check it <<here>>

Dance jumps

I also have implemented some dance routine for my dance students and they have worked for warm-up especially.

This is good for people who want to prep their bodies before practice or competition.

This are exercise we do  before a competition.

Dance warm-up warm-up

Have you heard of a saying that as a dancer you need to do a warm up before a warm-up?

Well it is true…

The reason people do this is because some muscles of the body take longer to warm up and sometimes it is not enough to do one warm up.

The advantages for this warm-up

  • Quick
  • Anyone can do it
  • Helps with overall body strength especially core muscles.


  • Not really efficient if you will not do a rigorous sport

About these exercises

I would like to give you a quick side not about these exercises.

All the above exercises are very good to do if you are a dancer.

This is because most of them focus on the hips and body flexibility which is needed for dancing.

If you are doing another sport I would recommend other more intense exercises like lifting weights and cycling.

I am not, however saying you can not use these exercise for your sport. I am saying it may not give you the full body work-out you are looking for.

If you are looking for other exercises which focus more on ballroom dancing you can read an article I wrote called Vital exercises for dancers.

These will focus more on the technical aspect of ballroom and Latin American dancers and have been used over centuries.


Final thoughts

Choosing the best dance workout has many aspects to look for.

Depending on your age, intentions and music you can structure a proper dance work out.

Bare in mind that your choice will be based on your needs.

The best workout exercise should be fun and easy to do at the comfort of your home.

The unlock your hip flexors  program is a health program that was created by Mike Westerdal who is known as a sports nutritionist, personal trainer and best national selling author.

He was also involved in the iron man magazine as one of the contributes. His years of experience in the sports industry is marked by his online site called


The other author of this program is Rick Kaselj has been in the exercise and fitness field mainly helping sport athletes recover from injuries.

He has also been in the industry for decades, dating back to 1994 when he started.

The advantage has has over many fitness experts is that he has studies for the fitness industry at university level.

The program focuses or talks about the one body organ which causes a lot of discomfort to normal people and those are the tight hips.

Many people are not aware that the hip muscles are the foundation to their problems.

Most of the following body problems are due to the hip tight muscle:

  • Back painunlock your hip flexora
  • Muscle cramps
  • Hip pain
  • heart problems
  • Decreased sexual desire
  • Poor sleep


The tight hip occur to people who sit for long hours on the chair.

This can also happen to top athletes as they also may tend to sit for extend hours.

The worst thing about the tight hip muscles is that it can happen to anyone and people may not even know when they are have it or not.

You might have it as we speaking without even knowing it at all.

Do you have the above symptoms that keep bugging you for years and you have been struggling to get rid of?

Well the chances are that you could have just this small problem that you need to change.

But do not worry you are not all in this matter many athletes and even dancers have this problem without knowing it.

Remember ballroom dancing is a sport so it is vital to get proper flexibility and and a stress-free body.

The unlock your hip flexora I found to address this issue for dancers but I am not sure if it can work for everyone.


As far as my research goes I did find out that Rick is a real person and he does indeed hlp people with fitness.

He even has a website where has has bee doing this which is called

As for Mike I did say earlier on that  he has a website called

This information alone should atleast leave you assured you are dealing with a real human being.


I know you the most important question the unlock your hip flexors is you would like to know is what is really inside this program before I decide to purchase it?

Let’s reveal this for you.

  • PDF manual

You get a soft copy of the program which is well documented in steps to do the exercises.

  • DVD series

You will get a dvd which goes hand in hand with the PDF manual


What I like about the program

I have to say that the program has a lot of positives then negatives. Below are the positives derived from this program.

  • Easy to follow

With the steps that are written in the handbook anyone can be able to follow the steps. In fact I think it is made to fit  even kids…jokes but you get what I mean right?

  • Written by fitness experts

As I mentioned earlier the founder of this program has been in the fitness industries for years and has made his name.

This thus means he  knows what he is doing.

  • Not time consuming

Afraid of your kids or cooking time being stolen? well with only exercises which require only 15 minutes of your time you are sure to have all your extra time to yourself.

  • Home friendly

“What if I do not have time to go to the gym Thabo?” well good news for your this program can be done at your home or any place that fits your personality.

  • 60 day money back guarantee

The good thing about this program is that you get use it risk-free for a month and thereafter you decide if it is for you or not.

What I do not like about the program

Unfortunately like any program this one also has its downsides. Let’s highlight them below.

  • ebook only

For those of you who do not like to spend time on the screen this will be a disadvantage.

Unless ofcourse you decided to print the whole ebook.

  • Age restrictive

Unfortunately if you are over 50 years this program may not be good for you due to the intensive exercises incorporated like the side push-ups and regular push-ups.

The verdict

The unlock your hip flexors is good for helping people get rid of the normal body problems like poor sleep, hip pain and heart problems.

Although many people may not be aware of having tight hips I would recommend  a person to try the Unlock your hip flexora program.

This is because this program is risk-free for 60 days and you may bring it back should you not be satisfied with the results.

However from many people I know who have used it it becomes an addiction since it produces good results.

As for me It worked but it was not an addiction because it just gave me satisfactory results after which I did not need to keep using it although I still do use some of their exercises once in a while.

Why is ballroom dancing so expensive?- The truth EXPOSED!

I have been asked by so many people as to why is ballroom dancing so expensive?why is ballroom dancing so expensive?

The people who always ask me this always make me laugh because this question to me really does not make sense because as a professional dancer I have gone through it all.

The answer to this question is usually very relative to every dancer who does dancing at a competitive level.

In this post I will walk you through what I think about this question.

Personal development

Ask yourself this question: why do we as people go to school for 12 years?

Ponder this question for me a moment…

I am sure you were thinking along the lines of :

  • We go to school because we want to develop reading and writing skills.
  • We go to school to take care of our growth.
  • We go to school so that we can learn certain basics skills that will help us in the real world.

The basic fundamental or common factor is that we go to school because we need to grow with our basic communication skills.

Sure there are other skills that you develop as well, but I am a talking in general terms here.

This is the reason why we pay to go to school for our development and learning ,but we hardly complain about the expenses we accumulate there.

why is ballroom dancing so expensive?

Ballroom dancing, like any sport, requires you to invest in your skills and information to be the best dancer.

This is why the private lessons get very high. This is because once you have the skill you can end up earning more then you ever dreamt of.


why is ballroom dancing so expensive?

The other fact which tends to make dancing seem very expensive is the outfits that are worn, whether it is for practice or competition.

These outfits, especially for women the dresses are very expensive if you want to look really good.

And why would you want to get an expensive dress you may ask?

Your look on the dance floor has a huge influence on your results

This is because your look on the dance floor has a huge influence on your results for the following reason:

  • Your look says a lot about your seriousness of wanting win to the adjudicators.why is ballroom dancing so expensive?
  • Your look makes adjudicators and spectators notice you.

You see how your look is so important and why you need to invest in high priced quality items for your dancing?


You are still asking why is ballroom dancing so expensive? well I hope this section should put your question to rest.

This section is still related to the clothing part I just talked about above (appearance).why is ballroom dancing so expensive?

The reason I put shoes as an entirely different section is because the shoes not only give you a great look but they also help with giving you better stability with your feet.

You see the major part of the body that you need is your feet as this dictates many things such as your balance, posture and stability while moving.

So what I mean is that you need to highly invest in good quality shoes for your dancing. I would recommend you check out a review I did about a brand I have been using for years Here.

This brand is also used by top ballroom dancers in the world especially  in the World DanceSport Fedaration (WDSF).

Prestigious sport

Yes I said sport…

Most people do not think it is worthy to invest their money in dancing just because it is not a sport.

This is a very bad mindset because it is wrong as I wrote about it in my previous article called: Is ballroom dancing a sport?

Any  prestigious sport you must expect to pay a lot for many things such as competition entry for example.

Look at a sport like Golf. You really pay a lot for the tools and clothing. This is because of the sports exclusivity.

Of course ballroom dancing is not as prestigious as golf but it follows the same principal for its items.


why is ballroom dancing so expensive?

At the end of the day whether ballroom dancing is expensive or not will depend on your goals.

For most people they say ballroom dancing is very expensive because they do not see it as sport that they want to be great at (whether they believe this or not).

You will notice that top dancer tend to always be investing in their dancing and this is why they are top dancers.

top dancer tend to always be investing in their dancing

Remember you do not get anything in life for nothing.

This is also the reason why I am a big fan of people who invest in themselves to be good.

In fact I have done a video about tips of becoming a top dancer below.


Final thoughts

Ballroom dancing is a sport like any other and often people do not know this and decide to not invest in their dancing.

This is why they end up saying ballroom dancing is expensive.

There are many factors that you need to consider before saying ballroom dancing is expensive.

Factors such as clothing that you need to wear, to the appearance that you want to show people when you dance.

If you do not understand these aspects you will end up asking this same question: Why is ballroom dancing so expensive?

This is a question that never comes to me and my partner because of the love we have for the sport.

In fact all top dancers think exactly this way and this is why it leads them to excel.

They see the positives in their sport or passion while the 99{14175b1f95d0f0faa387c4f6ed17908f179b141bfe6cf26d34224cd7cbf4f8b7} of people only see the negatives.

The best way to learn ballroom dancing-This will work for anyone?

Throughout my life I have always wanted to know the best way to learn ballroom dancing and through so many years I have found the answer.

Many people enjoy the thought of being captivated by music on the dance floor with their significant other, but when it comes to doing it in real life they are not aware of the best way to learn ballroom dancing.

You see I have been dancing for 15 years (that is most of my life, I know hey) and I have the best way to learn ballroom dancingseen it all and went through it all  before I become a successful professional ballroom dancer.

I know how hard it can be when you start ,especially if you have never danced with a partner before.

I also know how frustrating it can be to not be able to dance along with your partner and be on time with the music.

Having gone through all these huddles myself I will be walking you on the best way to learn ballroom dancing.

I hope this will not only be educational for you but I also hope it will be very entertaining…and why and do I saying this?

…Well because any kind of dancing, especially ballroom dancing should be very fun for anyone to do.

Without further ado let’s get right into it.

Join a dancing club

This is by far the best way to learn ballroom dancing when you start

Remember the saying “birds of the same feather flock together”? …Im sure you do. This the best way to learn ballroom dancingconcept is very true if you want to learn ballroom dancing fast.

This is because the environment that you are constantly in has a huge factor on your improvement.

What option would be efficient in learning a new language fast between these two options?

  1. Learning the language by reading books or online.
  2. Living in a country where people are all speaking the language

I am sure you are agree with me when I say option 2 is the most efficient because of many reason.

The first reason is that living in that specific country will give you full immersion because on a daily (or even hourly) basis you are forced to understand what the people are saying.

This will make you understand words that you would have never learnt in basic reading or a lecture.

The second reason is that you will end up picking up the accent very quickly as your subconscious mind will be recording daily.

Get the point?

This is the same process with learning  ballroom dancing. You will learn better with people around you living the sport.the best way to learn ballroom dancing

The other reason why joining a ballroom dance club is the best way to learn ballroom dancing is because you also get other benefits such as developing relationships.

These relationships are what will build your character to end up having more confidence in your steps since you have had the courage to dance in front of people, which is what most newbies fear.

Listen to dance music daily

aaaah you will like this one, The best way to learn ballroom dancing is when you listen to dance music as a habit.

This is one of the major factors that assisted me in quickly grasping the concept of “dancing in harmony with music”.

Please note this is a must if you want to speed your learning process as a beginner.

Most beginners neglect this aspect because they think just because they have left the dancing studio they must not think of dancing.

That is absolutely the incorrect way to do it and it will harm your growth significantly.

This is because whenever  you keep coming back to the studio your mind will have to keep re-adjusting, trying to get back to where it was the previous day or maybe the previous two days.

Remember that we as human beings are creatures of habit. The more we do something the more it gets ingrained in our bodies.

Human beings are creatures of habit

I usually suggest to my dancie students who are beginners to listen to music for at least a month when they are away from the studio so that the habit of understanding music is ingrained quickly.

This is because it takes 21 days for a habit to formed in a normal human being.

Opt for private classes more than group classes

ballroom dancing South Africa

As much as group classes are very good for you development and socializing but if you are really looking to grow more and fast I would recommend you look at private classes.

Check out my article about the different types of dance lessons and why private lessons are a must.

In a private class you get to have all the attention to you and your partner.

More than that the dance instructor can personalize the experience for you with regards to your levels of dancing and your style.

I am in no way saying you should not go for group classes but I am merely highlighting the aspect that will make you grow faster.

You can still attend group classes for the social part and also to develop your confidence and so forth but if you want to level up you need to add more private classes.

Have specific goals

I have spoken about the importance of goals on my previous article called Dancing for beginners-best way to be a top dancer quickly.

I highlighted that in order to achieve bigger improvement or even success in dancing it starts with knowing where you are and also where you are headed.

the best way to learn ballroom dancing

These factors will be the big determining factor for whether you will achieve your goal or not in dancing.

Have fun

This is undoubtedly the best way to learn ballroom dancing as it will help things come the best way to learn ballroom dancingeasily to you.

Guys you are doing an activity that has music and after all you are dancing so why not have fun while doing it.

This will not only be the best way to learn ballroom dancing but it will improve your well-being significantly all together.

Remember the most successful people do things that they are passionate about.

Final thoughts

Learning to do ballroom dancing the best way involves a lot of simple choices such as having fun, having goals and joining an environment that will enhance you.

Most people find it hard to learn ballroom dancing because they forget about the factors that go into being a great ballroom dancer.

These are all the techniques that have worked well for me and my students and I am sure that will work for you should you implement them 100{14175b1f95d0f0faa387c4f6ed17908f179b141bfe6cf26d34224cd7cbf4f8b7}.
