Discover the Magic of Acting Through Dance: Join our Adult Beginner Dance Classes Today!

As an adult, it can be challenging to find a new hobby or activity to pursue. You might have tried various things in the past, but nothing has sparked your interest or been something you would like to stick with. Have you considered adult beginner dance classes? Not only will you learn a new skill, but you might discover a hidden talent you didn’t even know was there. In this blog, we’ll talk about how dance classes can bring out the actor in you and help you shine on stage.

Benefits of Taking Adult Dance Lessons

There are many benefits to taking a dance class. Firstly, dance is an excellent way to stay healthy and can improve your cardiovascular health, muscle strength, and flexibility. Secondly, dancing can help boost your mood and reduce stress levels. When you’re dancing, you’re in the present moment, which can help you forget about any worries or stressors you may have, and lets face it, as adults we tend to have many! Additionally, dancing can help improve your coordination and balance, which can be beneficial in your day-to-day life.

How Dance Classes Can Help with Acting Skills

Believe it or not, dance and acting are two art forms that go hand in hand. Many actors participate in dance classes to help them develop their craft. It helps them to become aware of their bodies and surroundings, self-control, and expression, which are vital skills for any actor, on stage or screen. It allows a performer to be free and not take themselves too seriously. It can help you to understand and learn how to use your body to tell a story, which can translate into your acting performances. Also, dance can help you develop a strong stage presence, which is important for any actor. You’ll find that Musical Theatre performers act through dance throughout the majority of their productions to tell the story and move the show along as well as their epic vocals.

What to Expect During Your First Adult Dance Class

Attending your first adult dance class can be nerve-wracking, but you have to remember that everyone starts somewhere! When you arrive at the studio, you’ll likely be greeted by the instructor or a member of the Stage & the City Team. Be sure to arrive early to give yourself plenty of time to change into your dance clothes and warm up. During the class, the instructor will guide you through various exercises and techniques, starting with the basics. Don’t be afraid to ask questions or ask for help if you’re struggling. At the end of the class you should feel a sense of achievement, and leave proud knowing that you tried something new, and hopefully had a really fun time!

Meet Our Instructors

Here at Stage & the City we have three resident dance instructors. Rebecca Dyer (Musical Theatre Dance), Jennifer Welch (Contemporary Dance) and Aaron Littman (Commercial Diva Dance).
