Ten rules a follower should review for Ballroom

  1. Don’t assume the delusion that it’s the leader who must know how to dance, and that you just follow. To be a popular partner you must know how to dance the steps too.

  2. Feel confidence by learning many step patterns.

  3. Understand the learners part, you will find your then becomes easier.

  4. Follow your leader at all times on the dance floor, be ready to move lightly and don’t try to lead or dominate.

  5. Devolp a long graceful backward step that dose not hinder your partners movement.

  6. Always be ready to step off with whichever foot your partner wants to move first.

  7. Let your hold be light and don’t hang or learn on you partner.

  8. Don’t count our loud.

  9. Never look at your feet while dancing.

  10. Remember Practice makes Perfect

What should you eat when dance training?

What you eat when exercising or placing sport or dance training is important To prevent injuries, to sustain balanced and energy, both physically and mentally.

 

Dancers often suffer from joint and muscle pain after long hours of practice and this is usually a sign of inflammation. Inflammation is the body’s defence mechanism it a natural part of the healing process but can also become an issue if there is to much inflammation. Vitamin C can help alleviate your joint and soft tissue inflammation.

 

Foods high in Vitamin C

  • citrus fruit, such as oranges and orange juice.

  • peppers.

  • strawberries.

  • blackcurrants.

  • broccoli.

  • Brussels sprouts.

  • potatoes.

 

 

Hydration during long practice hours can also be a problem though we must stay hydrated drinking too much water can actually cause the body to flush out important vitamins and minerals.

 

Eating water through fruit and vegetables can allow the body to absorb and store water longer, and will also replenish any lost vitamins and minerals.

 

  • Tomatoes (95% water)

  • Lettuce ( 96% water)

  • Celery ( 95% wate)

  • Watermelon and Strawberries (92% water)

  • Broccoli (91% water)

  • Cantaloupe (90% water)

  • Pineapple (86% water)

  • Cucumber (96% water)

 

Drinking water and snackIng on these throughout long practices or workshops will keep you hydrated.

 

Antioxidants protect the brain's functions like focus and memory.

Eat foods rich in antioxidants when taking class.

 

  • ‍Blueberries

  • ‍Green Tea

  • Dark chocolate

  • Artichokes

  • Pecans

  • Strawberries

  • Red cabbage

  • Raspberries

  • Beans

  • Purple or red grapes

  • Spinach

  • Beets

  • Kale

  • Orange vegetables

 

Eating a heavy meal right before a class or practice can lead to a lack of energy.

 

You should aim to eat a carbohydrate high meal 1-2 hours before your class/practice. Good carbohydrates absorbed slower, making the energy last longer. Eating 1-2 hours before practice means our bodies have enough time to properly digest the food.

Good carbohydrates

  • oats,

  • rice,

  • vegetables

  • pasta.
