Need Some Help Dancing? These Three Apps Can Get You Moving

Let’s face it: not everyone is a natural dancer. Despite the fact that dancing has been around since the dawn of time as a way to express oneself and enjoy the company of others, it can be frustrating for many who have never been strong dancers when they find themselves in a situation that can make them feel awkward. Thankfully, dancing is a technical art and like all things technical, it can be learned and taught to others. In the past few years, a variety of mobile apps have been developed to help us with just about every facet of life – and it’s no different when it comes to dancing. In the following article, we will discuss three different mobile apps that can empower users and help them learn more about an array of popular dance styles and routines.

Dance Lessons

Rhythm is not something that comes natural for many people – chances are that if you are reading this, then it applies. You may not be ready for the dance floor now, but you soon will be through the use of apps like Dance Lessons. Users will be able to view dozens of different dances and techniques to help you strut your stuff on the dance floor. These video tutorials help simplify the process of learning how to dance, which can be difficult when only following verbal or written directions. Its simple interface helps users find the desired types of dances that they wish to learn – whether you are seeking instruction on how to salsa, swing dance or the best moves for a night out at the club, Dance Lessons can help. You can find this app for free on the Android Marketplace and it is an excellent ally for those who are beginning to learn how to dance.


Zumba Dance

One of the most popular dance crazes to hit the world in recent years, Zumba is a hybrid dance style that fuses South American rhythms with modern dance techniques. Millions of people have tried Zumba in order to learn more about dance and burn calories – with thousands of classes being held each month around the world, it is no doubt one of the most popular ways to have fun, lose weight and dance. The Zumba Dance app ($4.99) is designed to combine exercise and dance into one fun program, with videos that walk you through each routine. Added downloads can be purchased to give the Zumba Dance app even more power. Throughout the dance routines, you will learn elements of various forms of dance like cumbia, salsa, hip-hop and reggaeton.


Hip Hop Dance

Anyone who wants to explore the world of hip-hop dance will love the aptly named Hip Hop Dance app, currently available for download on the Android Marketplace for free. Users will have access to dozens of popular hip-hop moves that encompass a variety of styles. Anyone who has trouble being confident on the dance floor will appreciate the sound advice, high-definition video tutorials and basic terminology that help you understand the sometimes jargon-laced vocabulary of dance words.
