Romantic Elements of Dance


Ballroom dancing is as romantic as it is pleasurable.  For years the world’s greatest romantics have known the best way into the heart of a woman is to sweep her across the dance floor.   Embracing, touching, holding and moving to the music is the most romantic skill any couple can add to their lives.  Think of all the numerous relationships that would have never started without the world’s best ice breaker — “May I have this dance?”

The romantic elements of dance are a secret that all good dancers enjoy.  For men, being able to recognize which dance the disc jockey is playing and having the confidence in your ability to walk across the floor and ask a lady to dance is a social requirement.  For ladies, they will always be in demand as a partner once they master the graceful poise, elegant styling and the all-important following skills. 


Dancing can help strengthen a relationship. It provides the opportunity for you to express  your deepest emotions towards your partner, accelerating your relationship into a more sensual mood.  New excitement and vivacity can be found together on the dance floor.  When you take ballroom dancing lessons as a couple, you learn skills that improve your romantic relationship by building your confidence not only on the dance floor, but in other areas of your relationship.   Through dancing, you pick up romantic skills such as the holding, touching, and moving to the music that dancing requires. All of this is done while you're spending quality time together having fun!  Contact By the Sea and enhance your relationship today.

Footwork Tips!!!

Do you lose your balance, have trouble turning or feel you look awkward doing complicated footwork?  Here are some helpful tips:

Many dancers move with their feet apart. This makes them look awkward. Try the following. Imagine walking on a plank of wood, just wide enough to accommodate your feet, side by side. Now move forward and backward without stepping off the plank. You'll notice that when one foot passes the other,  it brushes against it. 

Get used to brushing your feet against each other moving forward and backward, then apply the same technique to moving in different directions. Whenever one foot takes a step, it touches or brushes against the other before you put your weight on it. Note that, except where a variation demands it, one foot never crosses in front or back of the other. Each foot always stays in its own track.


When you spin, either on two beats or on a triple step, stay on one spot by keeping your feet together (unless the step requires you to travel, in which case you stay on the plank). This way you wont wobble, loose your beat, or end up too far away from your partner, forcing him to chase and catch you , or rushing to close the gap.


Ladies, I know moving backward most of the time is difficult. However, try pointing your toe out when stretching the leading leg backward (and I mean stretching). Arching your back helps. When you kick, point your toe out and down. Pointing your toe up or inward looks very ungainly and is only suitable for some western moves (where it looks cute). To do a Tango swivel (fan), keep your knees together, stay balanced on your weighted foot,  and point your free toes down and out.  

Remember you are your worst critic.  Give yourself a break and just enjoy the moment and have fun!

Wedding Dance Lessons


Preparing for your wedding dance is an important step toward the perfect wedding and making your first dance a joyous, memorable event.
Let us help you create a fantastic first dance. It is one of the most important dances of your life, in front of an audience of family and friends, recorded on video and in photos that will last a lifetime. We promise to make your wedding dance memorable and unique.
We specialize in turning a potentially uncomfortable “first dance” into something marvelous. Wedding dance lessons are a chance for couples to do something fun together during those busy pre-wedding months.
We can help you start off your wedding with an exceptional first dance. Your routine will be personalized and choreographed to best reflect the unique style of the bride and groom. Make your wedding dance a moment to treasure with a dance choreographed to your special song. Your dance can be anything from a fun hip hop routine to a very formal fox trot or a mix of both. Personalized dances are not limited to only the Bride and Groom. We can also choreograph wedding party entrances as well as Father/ Daughter and Mother/Son dances.
We are honored to have worked with so many wonderful wedding couples in creating a memorable wedding dance. Many of our satisfied couples continue to take lessons after their wedding to learn more dancing so that they can share the joy of dance for the rest of their lives.
By the Sea Dance studio is also available as a venue for wedding parties (engagement, bridal shower, bachelorette) and social gatherings.  Contact us today!
