I thought a dance discussion thread might be fun!

Do any of you like to dance as a hobby?
What sort of dancing?
Fav YT dance cover channels?

+ dancing is great exercise, so maybe this thread can help inspire some fitness.

I'm currently a bit obsessed with Kpop dance covers.

I used to really like Weveyas dance covers, until they became unnecessarily sexy- don't get me wrong, I thought it was cool they did sexier versions of boy group dances(which I would learn to do), but wiggling after the dance is over with unzipped shorts and thong way too high just seem weird to me

At my gym they have a bunch of Zumba classes and I've found it's a super fun way to exercise! I feel like I'm just flailing around most of the time while some girls look like they were born to Zumba, but I still enjoy it.

One day I will have beautiful dancer physique.

No. 50872

YES. I used to love waveya, I still like their covers but they're just over-the-top usually.

Vid related is one of my fav waveya covers because they're just being silly and having fun.

I just look at a dance I like that doesn't require multiple people and spend a little time learning it each day. I dance all alone in my room for fun because no way in hell would I ever be good enough, or have the courage, to do it in front of people outsidr my family. I feel like I'd just look flat out weird.

I like lots of fast dances and I wanna learn slow ballroom type stuff but the only places for here offer hip hop so if I ever move cities I'll look for a place that teaches ballroom dancing.

I love the choreography for this music video, it's so much fun. I'm starting to really enjoy dance, I wish I didn't have 2 left feet so I could join a studio for lessons.

No. 50881

Agreed! I'm in college and I just picked up ballet as an elective. I felt like a total idiot when I put on the leotard and couldn't move like a real ballerina (think taylor swift in the swan scene of shake it off), but I'm starting to figure it out. The small improvements I see every week are really rewarding (which I never would have been cognizant of as a child). Hopefully I can do pointe work as an adult.

No. 50882

Oooh I love dancing! And yes, same as OP, I'm obsessed with K-Pop dances, J-Pop also, but just a little bit. I still K-Pop MVs are a bit ridiculous, but their dances are fun to watch and follow. Personally, I like these recently :

CLC - Pepe (the video I attached)

Be careful with the neck part, I did that a bit too hard, and my neck was sore up until the next day, lol

My favorite K-Pop choreography is always by SHINee or f(x). Pretty hard to follow at first and tires you up realy fast, but it's worth it, in my opinion.

No. 50883

k-pop dances are lame compared to actual street dancing tbh. It's all the editing that makes them not look like ass.

No. 50884

True that, mute any kpop video that doesn't have speed/slow edits and only look at one person. There's a reason why people don't dance like this outside of a choreographed show or recording studio.

No. 50885

Well you definitely can't compare K-Pop to street dancing, they are different. Street dancing is harder and more complicated indeed, while K-Pop are choreographed with consideration that the idols have to sing while dancing it imho, that's why they don't look as hard.

No. 50886

>the idols have to sing while dancing it
Why not just lip sync? Are the koreans actually particular about that?

>that's why they don't look as hard.

Wait, so you think if they weren't singing at the same time they'd be just as good as professional dancers?!

No. 50887

About lip sync, afaik, Koreans are pretty judgmental about that on their idols, more than the Japanese.

>if they weren't singing at the same time they'd be just as good as professional dancers?!

Imho, it depends on the person. If he/she's like, the dancer of their K-Pop group, yeah, maybe they'd be just as good as pro dancers if they danced outside of their singles. But then again, that's just me.

Sorry to kinda necro a thread but holy shit same, anon. I'm a massive fan of Prince and his first wife was a belly dancer.
I don't think lessons are too far from where I live but I'm just a little shy I suppose, if I did go I'd have to go with a friend.
I'd love to learn to dance with a sword on my head like Mayte did aaaa

No. 60835

Anyone else do an adult ballet class? How much do the teachers correct your technique?

I just started an adult ballet class recently and the teacher makes general comments on technique but not specific ones to individuals. I did ballet when I was younger and my teacher nitpicking is the reason it's still quite ingrained 10 years later, I think it's a pretty essential part of it. I see other girls in the class making obvious mistakes and they don't get corrected, and it makes me worry I'm doing the same. I do understand that it's meant to be fun, we're not future pros taking exams or anything and it might be too confrontational for beginners, but still. I feel like maybe I should ask directly but I don't think it'd be appropriate for her to pick on one student either (even if they ask for it).

No. 60861

You have to go to an intensive or masterclass with very limited participants if you want that much correction. It's rare for teachers to over-correct adults, not only is it unfair for casual dancers but it may turn them off from continuing to spend money on classes.

No. 60883


I used to be really interested in this show but the awkward relationships in trailers made me nope out

No. 61465

Exactly what >>60861 said, although I'm sure that it's still worth letting the teacher know that you personally welcome critique.
People who weren't raised on a diet of shame, fed to them by nagging ballet teachers, don't understand us anon. I was part of a casual dance group recently and people got really offended when I pointed out how someone clearly knew the steps perfectly but wasn't dancing with confidence.

No. 249077

I'm necroying this thread because I'm learning this choreo and I need some nonnies to dance with me.
There's 3 versions in this video and the second one is by far the superior one, in my humble opinion.

How do I learn to dance?
Someone told me that I can dance to anything however I want but that sounds like bs to me, I don't want to look dumb in front of other people, I want to dance confidently by knowing what I'm doing

No. 249083

I would suggest first to get familiarised with the different styles of dancing, then after you have found one you like you can literally search "XYZdance for beginners" on youtube and there are TONS of free videos. Also get a good sized mirror that is above 180cm (tall) to be able to look at yourself while dancing. And lastly take it slow and don't ignore your muscles, eat good protein to build good muscle so you are able to have more control over your movements.

I’m coming out of retirement (quit in middle school, was in a ballet company) and have been somewhat pleasantly surprised by the increase in types of pointe shoes and cute leotards. But then I came across Kandi Kouture and it legit seems like a company created by a pedophile? I thought it was so weird that they refer to the garments for adults as “teens” whereas other dance wear brands just say adults. Plus their leotards are SO revealing, it’s just legitimately disgusting and weird to see. Is this a brand that’s more common in competitive dance? I would be horrified if I saw a company ballerina show up in this to rehearsals in front of 9 year old girls

No. 297802

Nvm this is owned by someone from Dance Moms which explains everything. Disgusting.

No. 297803

yuck, I came from the front page because these looked cute (for adults) but now I feel gross.

No. 297807

If you think it’s gross then think of the women who put their daughters in these outfits. It is truly mind boggling as an adult to wrap my head around why some women would sell out their own precious children to be fodder for pedophiles.

No. 297813

offtopic, sorry, but have you seen the dance/gym moms who basically have onlyfans for pix of their daughters on instagram? it's like a subscription thing. literally selling their children's bodies to pedos online for $, sickening. momuncharted on tiktok talks loads about this

at studio the next day, over the course of an hour I ended up going from her stupid big spacers, to my smaller ones, to a random thin piece of a torn gel toe cap, to nothing. the money hoarder in me is not amused. love the shoes tho they're great so far

No. 324231

I love learning all kinds of dance and I have been spent the past year trying tahitian and hawaiian dance. It's amazing how much I picked uo by watching and trying it but the tahitian ami(?) I forget the name but the fast hip circles are insanely hard to master. I never really knew I could dance like this, my hips lie.

It helps maybe that I started bellydance several years ago.

ballet anons, I just started adult ballet classes last august and I really genuinely want to improve and become a decent dancer in a few years. I have no delusions of being able to dance professionally or anything, I just want to be able to discipline myself enough to learn and maybe go en pointe in a few years if possible. But I keep getting bogged down thinking about how I'm such a late starter and most of the posters on the ballet reddit (gross) are really snotty about adults wanting to improve. any words of encouragement?

No. 324298

The most important thing for improvement is going to classes often, like multiple times a week. Maybe you already do, but I know when I did adult ballet it was hard to find enough classes to do that, so I stagnated. Another issue with adult classes is that they're super lax, teachers don't want to offend anyone so they don't offer corrections much, so if you can find a strict or helpful teacher that's ideal.

I get what you mean about snobby posters, but they're probably sick of beginners flooding the sub with questions about going pro before they've even done their first class. There are definitely limitations as an adult, but just wanting to be decent is a reasonable, achievable goal.

No. 324356

Like the other poster said, go often. Focus on control rather than how high you can get your leg or how many turns your can do. It is so important to do stuff correctly and you'll improve a lot faster. There's a lot of videos you can look up that show proper posture, how to hold your back properly, how to turn out from your hips, how to square your hips etc. In terms of control, don't go for height or speed, just slow and controlled repetitive motions. A lot of times beginner or intermediate students get bored or over confident because they don't understand why so much time is spent on doing basic moves at the barre or think that something is "too easy." Even a tendu has a right and a wrong way and if you get a really strong idea of positioning your body and engaging the muscles, you'll get strong pretty quickly. There's a ton of classes on youtube and supplementary videos for practicing or stretching in spare time but you have to have a proper class so you can get corrections

No. 324363

I do folk dance and wanted to share the music from one of our dances but I don't have the actual audio file, just videos from our practices. I just managed to convert one from 150 MB mp4 to just the audio and into webm only to listen to it and hear the director start shouting in the middle kek she's very good at what she does but I don't think there's a single audio I could grab that doesn't have her yelling. She also got mad at me for not singing last week when a) that was my first time seeing the lyrics and b) I cannot read the language. Or should I say I czanót rzead thę łangyuagie I want to get mad sometimes because she won't specify the choreography and then gets upset when we mess it up and insists that she did tell us when she didn't. She's just really stressed out from the performance coming up no hate to her

Stretch, do a shitload of ankle strengthening exercises, do basic exercises as often as possible. Pay attention to how your body looks and how it's positioned, especially how your shoulders and hips are positioned.

Any dance class will teach you how to dance gracefully, but if you're looking to learn specific dance moves it's a good idea to look up recorded performances from dance academies in your area and see which ones you're drawn to.
