Understanding how to dance Kpop is dependent upon the level that you are at, the music track, and the routine you will dance to.
The simplest way to learn is to sign up with a dance school that offers Kpop dance training.
For novices, it normally take about 6 or 8 lessons (supposing a 1-hour lesson each) to know a dance routine.
When you move on to advanced level, you may take a faster time (4-5 lessons) to learn a track, as you are already entering the groove and have also learnt the standard dance steps.
You can even learn it all on your own via taking note of and following the moves from Kpop videos. However, this requires considerable time and dedication, on top of that, there is no one to look out for your slip-ups.
DIY training is not quite suitable for a novice, given the fact that Kpop dance is generally a group dance and is visually wonderful when almost everyone is dancing in great synchronization. Thus, you’ll certainly need to consider attending the right instructional classes at first.
The only occasion where do-it-yourself learning is actually appropriate is when you come to intermediate or advanced stage, and you want to learn more styles that can increase your skill. This can be a way for dancers to enhance their dance ability at this level.
You can also stay back for an added 1 or 2 hours immediately after the lesson, so as to practice what the instructor had demonstrated. Other people may choose to practice from their home or perhaps together with their peers in a rental studio room prior to the actual class.
To become excellent in any style of dance, it really need the dancer to apply a good amount of their time and effort in training. Lastly, it also depends on how far you are willing to go ahead in this dance.
As the saying goes, good dancers are not borned, they are trained to become one. Of course, there must be an initial talent in that person to become good at dancing. However, that talent is often a seed and rarely takes form until the person works on it.
If you’re starting out with KPop dance and uncertain if this really is for you, why don’t you consider taking the beginners dance lessons first? Go with an open mindset and allow yourself an opportunity to locate your interest and talent, you never know where this can may lead you to!
