"When the music starts, the floor comes alive. At first it can seem a bit intimidating (especially seeing the experienced dancers move) but stick with it and get asking people onto the floor."
Go back just over a year and while I'd always wanted to take up dancing, I also always found an excuse not to start lessons (No rhythm, two left feet etc…). So, when I was challenged to take this up by a friend, I was nervous as anything but then you meet your fellow dancers. Some are brand new on their first night like you, some only there a few weeks, some dancing for years, but everyone you meet remembers their first night, will offer up tips and encouragement, the teachers take everything step by step and guide you all through it tog.ether, your Taxi Dancers will take time to break everything down and answer any questions your have and no-one turns down the offer of a dance when the freestyle starts!
When the music starts, the floor comes alive. At first it can seem a bit intimidating (especially seeing the experienced dancers move) but stick with it and get asking people onto the floor. Everyone remembers starting out and having the same feelings, and will do everything possible to make it easier for you to stay involved and enjoy the night. The more you practice the moves you learnt that night, the easier they become. It's all broken down into easy to remember sequences and you'll get a video to remind you of them the next day by e-mail so you can practise at home. It's the easiest and most social style of dancing I've ever encountered.
When I started Ceroc, I had hoped to improve my fitness, meet a few new people and maybe learn enough to avoid having to dad dance at weddings and in clubs. I never could have imagined a year later I'd have danced in some truly iconic venues across Europe, made friends from all over the country, found a new level of confidence in myself, more than just improved on my fitness and found myself wishing I'd just taken the plunge and started sooner. Through Ceroc I've learnt more than just a style of dance, and I can't recommend it enough.« All blogs
