Anonymous asked: How did you learn how to dance? I am a plus sized, white, 15 year old girl, and I used to be able to dance very well. After years of self hate I've kind of lost touch with my body, and I dont really know how to dance anymore.... I would love to get back to dancing, but I am afraid to go to a class because im not good at all anymore and I'm afraid they will make fun of me.... Do you have any tips?
Firstly, you need to learn to love your body no matter what. If you are not comfortable with your body, then you will not be able to dance well. Knowing what your body can and cant do is how you can figure out your rhythm. Try dancing at home in front of a mirror, learn choreo from a youtube video and just dance dance dance. Record yourself and see what moves you think you can do better. Once you feel good, head to a dance class.
I can honestly say that 90% of the people in there are only looking at themselves and trying to improve themselves….you should be doing the same and not care about what others think of you. The more you practice and conquer your body and its movements, the better you will feel and look!
Keep it up mama!
