So you want to find a dance partner to practice with? With a partner you will be able to get extra practice outside your dance lessons to review and perfect your moves. But where do you start? And how do you make sure that you find the right partner? These are some of the questions we will be answering through out this article. The first step in your dance partner search is all about you!
You need to be absolutely clear on what your goals are and what you want to get out of the partnership. To save you time I have come up with 3 good questions you should ask and discuss with a potential partner. These will give you a good idea if you have a match or not. Undoubtedly there are many others, but these are a good start. Some people are looking to become the next National USA champions, while others are just looking to be able to lead and follow someone at a party.
So make sure you spend the time to really find out what they are looking to get out of this partnership. Are you looking for someone who does American style Cha Cha and Waltz only? Or are you looking for someone who does all 9 Smooth and Rhythm dances?
Or is it Salsa? Is it everyday? Once a week or once a month? I recommend at least one practice session per week on a consistent basis, but again it all depends on your goals… Next you will need to agree on how long you want to practice each time. Is it 30 minutes? Make sure you discuss this ahead of time to avoid future frustrations. While you are not looking for a soulmate, you should make sure that your partner is someone you want to be around.
You need to find out whether your personalities match. If you are an easy going, social dancer then it may be very important for you to find a partner who likes to keep it light and fun. On the other hand, if you are competitive and serious, then you need to find a dance partner who has the same drive and focus.
Your dance studio is probably the first place you should broadcast your search for a partner. Let them know your age, height and goals and ask them if they have anybody in mind for you. Because they already know you personally they may be able to recommend someone well suited for you. They may know someone to refer you to. This is a new effective place to look for a dance partner.
There are now many websites that offer free and paid partner classified . The best thing about these sites is the information they provide about each dancer. They will usually have their picture, height, age, gender, location, a little bio and what they are looking for, all in one place. Lately, I have also seen a of people posting their youtube video URL so you can see their dancing instantly! They provide lots of stats about each dancer and it is a great website for both social dancers and competitive dancers looking for a partner.
They offer both a free and premium listing depending on how many features you want to use. Note, this site is more suitable for those looking for a competitive dance partner.
