Costume Ready for 2015

We started 2015 with a brand new look. After working on this outfit for the past four weeks, we finally finished it. It is amazing how you think it will take you a certain amount of time to get it done and then it takes you three times as long. Now that it is done, we will use it for the entire 2015. This past weekend, we already used it for Nashville Starz as our first competition in the new year.

Can’t Find the Beat? Learn How to Play Music

Many dancers have a hard time finding the beat so they are not dancing with the music. The best way to learn how to find the beat is to learn how to play the rhythm. The following video shows you how to play Cha Cha rhythm on a conga. It looks very difficult, but it is not. You don’t have to buy a conga. You can use a pencil or just tap the beat with your hand. If you can play the rhythm, you will be able to count it. Just like when you learn how to write, you automatically know how to read. The first two minutes of the video are the most useful.
