Learn to Dance Rumba for Valentine’s Day

The Rumba is considered the “dance of love”, and involves passion and sensuality existing between two dancers.  With sharp sexy movements, this Latin dance incorporates “Cuban motion”, an expressive movement achieved with a combined effort using a figure eight hip motion and a bending and straightening of the legs with weight changes from foot to foot.

It’s rhythmic roots originated in Africa and found its way to Cuba.  Rumba music has a slow, 4/4 timing that has become one of the most popular dances in America after coming to the states in the 1920s.

Latin dancewear for ladies is unique in design and colors.  You want to choose something with a fitted bodice to enhance the lines of your body movements.  Adding details to a dress like fringe, ruffles, or flounces enriches the look of sexy cuban motion.  Men typically wear  simple black dance pants with or without a satin sideseams, but Men’s Latin shirts are infinitely as varied and interesting according to each man’s unique preferences -including lace, satin, sequins, or even sheer fabrics.

As the “Love” holiday approaches, we encourage you to spend this Valentine’s Day with us learning the popular Rumba dance.  It will be a great evening for you and your date, or for all the singles to enjoy this holiday together, dancing!   For more information call Dancemasters Studio at 214-553-5188.

Planning for Your Dance Showcase Routine

Preparing for a dance showcase routine is one of the most exciting parts of Ballroom dancing. Here are some tips in preparing for your performance:

*Plan ahead, making sure there is enough time to have 20-25 lessons before your performance to allow enough time to learn choreography and work on styling to enhance your performance.  Beginner dancers may require a little more time to fully prepare.

*Decide on what style of dance you want to perform.  If you have a professional partner they can choreograph a dance routine for you and your dance partner.  There are so many options in dance style for your performance routine from smooth, rhythm, swing, country western, or even a medley of styles!

*Choosing the music is a key element in creating the mood, or the message that your routine will share with the audience.  It is important you discuss this with your instructor to ensure the song will be appropriate for the dance you have chosen.

*Choosing a costume, whether it be rhythm, smooth, or novelty, will be something you will want to consider after selecting a song.  Some costumes require 4-6 weeks if you are having one customized.  Tango Rouge Ballroom Dancewear has in-stock and custom-made costumes for all body shapes and dance styles.

*Using your time wisely and practicing at least once a week without your partner will not only increase your performance but will also help with balance and muscle memory.  Some studios will allow students to practice individually for a small floor fee outside of busy times.

Dancemasters Studio has just announced it’s 2nd Annual Spring Showcase on May 9, 2014.  It’s the perfect time to start preparing your showcase routine!  For registration and more information contact 214-553-5188 for performing in Dallas.

Find Your Dance Spirit at Dancemasters Studio Dallas

Spirit of DanceDancing is more than executing steps and patterns.  Some people dance because they believe that dancing is a great exercise.  Others see dancing as a great mental exercise that is proven to improve brain function, and even slow down the onset dementia or Alzheimer’s.  Many dancers who begin dancing socially find that it becomes a source for making great friends and belonging to a wonderful community of people who enjoy a common interest.  Whatever reason it is that you dance, dancing is a very passionate activity which engages all your senses, and often brings out feelings and emotions from within that are unexplainable and very personal. All dancers at some point have experienced the passion of losing themselves in the music and in the moment.  Many dancers say they forget the world while they are dancing.

If you would like to have the opportunity to experience some of these feelings, it’s never too late to learn to dance.  At Dancemasters Studio, we work closely with students of all ages in teaching our love of ballroom dancing so that they too can experience those surreal moments.  If you want to explore your passion for dance, don’t wait another day to begin.

Ballroom Inspiration with Victor Fung and Anastasia Muravyeva

The staff at Tango Rouge Ballroom Dancewear recently had the chance to see Victor Fung and Anastasia Muravyeva perform live at the 21st Annual Black & White Ball held in Dallas.  This magnificent ballroom couple captured the hearts of all those in attendance, and gave an exquisite demonstration of excellence in ballroom dance.

First of all, we’d like to say how amazing it was to watch this couple perform live.  Their technique and presentation were absolutely stunning.  They created a magical presence with their dancing, costuming and most importantly their passion executing the various dances, including Foxtrot, Quickstep, and Tango.  Not only was their dancing inspiring and thrilling, but seeing the magnificent costumes in person was such a treat.   There were costume changes with every performance, and each and every one of Anastasia’s ballroom gowns were brilliantly designed, and flowed so beautifully with the couple’s elegant movements across the floor.  The gowns were detailed with intrigue designs that were customizable down to the very Swarovski crystal bracelet size.

We were so inspired by their costumes, and we would love to help you with your inspiration dream dress.  Tango Rouge Ballroom Dancewear can make your dance performances unique and one of a kind with costumes and accessories for both men and women.  Follow us on Twitter @TRBallroomWear or visit our website for more information.

Why I Love High Heeled Dance Shoes

Ballroom and Latin Dancing lends itself to all sorts of variations in both dance costumes and in dance shoes.  If you have ever watched the hit show “Dancing With The Stars”, you have a good idea of some of the different looks and styles the dancers wear.  Just as the costumes vary according to the style of the dance, there are slight variations between ladies latin dance shoes and ladies ballroom dance shoes.

Ladies Latin Dance ShoesCharacteristic of the latin dances such as cha-cha, samba, rumba, or jive, the lady wears a latin dance shoe that is open toed, much like a high heeled sandal.   High heeled dance shoes are usually 3-3  1/2″  high, and give the lady an extended leg line, which enhances the beauty of the latin dances.  The female professional dancers you see on “Dancing With the Stars” are most always dancing in 3 or 3 1/2″ heels, such as Chelsea Hightower wore in her many appearances on the show. But Chelsea and all the other dancers on the show are professionals, and have years and years of training, and know how to dance flawlessly in those high heeled shoes.   Many amateur dancers find it much more comfortable to dance in a heel that is 2-2 1/2″, and still achieve a fine leg line.

There are many benefits to dancing, but one of the most fun things about dancing is you Latin Dance Shoesget to dance in those gorgeous latin dance shoes.  You can find them with T-straps, Cross Straps, Ankle straps, rhinestone bedazzled, and a rainbow of colors and styles.  A lady can never have too many shoes, and dance shoes are no exception.  Pick out your favorite new style today, and have a great time dancing in your new sexy latin dance shoes!

Contact us if you have any questions relating to size or fit.  We are here to help you!
