Once you have the type of dance, and if you’re not sure – try different ones and see what fits your style the most, you need to prepare for the classes. If you picked ballet, here are a few things you may like to have on your first day of being in class.

As if my ballet teacher would let me wear anything but a leotard and tights:

If you’re someone who just wants to dance and not worry about actually going to a class setting, there are many online sources – including this one – that will allow you to get the basics of dancing down.

However, while still staying in the realm of dancing in a super generic ‘core’ way, you can do little things to spice up the bare minimum:

  • Don’t just limply swing your arms, get your shoulders into it.
  • Take steps side to side, or back and forth.
  • Mix up your arm movements.
  • Nod your head.
  • Do little pivots or twists on one foot, or both feet.
  • Don’t just slightly rotate your torso, move it back and forth, or from one side to the other.
  • Pick up one foot ever so slightly, then the other, to kind of march in place. Don’t overdo the movement and look like a robot, just move your feet a tad.
  • Mix up the possible arm, torso, and leg variations. Find a combination that looks good and do it for a while, then switch to another one. Don’t mix things up to the point where you’re doing something new every half a second. That looks too scattered.

At this point you’re hardly going to win a dance competition, but you’re at the level of those movie extras, and 75% of the people you’ll see out at a bar. At this point you really could develop no further in your dancing ability and be able to get by on a dance floor for the rest of your life.
