The importance of finding a good partner in professional dance training

Finding a new dance partner is a delicate and problematic issue whether you are a beginner or have years of dancing experience behind.

One of the things that makes dancing such a beautiful experience is that two people manage to work as a team, to express genuine emotions together and tell a story on music, or even to simply create unforgettable memories. Professional dancing is not a sport where one can excel by himself, therefore all professional dancers desire to find the best partner there with whom they could form a successful pair.

The search of a perfect dance partner is not an easy task. The two persons that want to form a dance couple should:

  • have the same goals
  • practice the same style of dance: standard, latino or both
  • be physically compatible: height and weight criterias
  • have a similar baggage of knowledge

One of the things that should be kept in mind is that it is always easier to find a partner when you are starting to learn a dance, rather than when you are already advanced with the specific techniques.

There are a few things that should be kept in mind when searching for the perfect dance partner:

  1. Decide whether dancing is a hobby or a career path for you

It is important for the people forming a dance couple to have the same goals and expectations for the activity. Both persons should want to achieve similar results and they should both be ready to dedicate themselves to the intense training in order to achieve results.

  1. Decide what style of dance you prefer

It is best for the two partners to share a passion for a specific dance style. That way it will be easier to coordinate and practice will come natural.

  1. Choose a partner that you like spending time with

The two dancing partners will spend a lot of time together training for competitions, learning specific routines, etc. If the two like each other, they will be able to dissolve quickly any conflict that might occur and they can perfect their technique together.

  1. Dance with as many possible partners as you can find

A good dancer can easily perform with both a beginner and an expert as a partner. The variety of partners, of dance styles, of the way the partner understands the music’s rhythm and the dancing steps, of the way in which the partner leads or follows; they all represent a unique opportunity of learning. Besides, by trying out a variety of possible partners, one can realize easier which type of dancer would suit them best as a permanent partner.

  1. Be the perfect partner in order to have a good partner

There is a well-known saying that goes: Be the change you want to see in the world. In order for your partner to meet your expectations, you have to be a good example: come to practice on time, take care of yourself and follow the routine in a professional manner.
