Entertainment Trends, New Ideas and Industry Updates

Welcome to my blog. My name is Nina. During the day, I work in an office as an administrative assistant. I love my job, but in the evening, I like to do something totally different. I spend time with my dogs taking nature walks, I babysit my nieces and nephews and I also love to read about the entertainment industry. In regard to the last element, I felt like I was just constantly consuming information, and I wanted to make something with it so I decided to start my blog. Here, I plan to write about everything related to the entertainment industry. I hope you like it!

4 styles of dance classes that won't require a partner

If learning a new dance style has been on your to-do list for years, but you've been put off by the lack of a dance partner, never fear. There are some great styles of dance that don't need a partner for you to learn or perform in. Here are 4 dance class options to get you started.

Samba classes

While samba is performed in a ballroom dancing as a partnered dance, a more traditional Latin American style does not require a partner. Samba is danced by groups of friends in clubs as well as in group routines (including the glamourous parading style that you can see performed in the Rio Carnivale celebrations). This is a great style for people with any background in dance, and the energetic style gives a great aerobic workout in addition to the fun of learning new moves.

Ballet classes

There are a growing number of classes in ballet being offered both to absolute beginners and those that gave up ballet lessons in previous years but who are eager to get restarted. Ballet classes focus on strength and precision, and they have a gentle yet challenging pace. The focus on technical mastery of moves can be intimidating to some new participants, so it's important to be honest about your current skill level when signing up for a new class.

Solo Charleston classes

If you've ever admired the flapper styles of the 20's, the Charleston is an easy and approachable single dance. While it can be performed partnered, this dance started as solo dance and is still a fun dance for singles to learn. The singles style of Charleston is relatively fast compared to the couple's style, reflecting to speed of music in 1920s jazz vs the slower beats in the 1930s and 1940s where the Charleston moved to being a couples dance style. Charleston classes are often run by Lindy Bop clubs or similar rockabilly/jive social clubs.

Modern dance/hip hop classes

No matter your age, you will occasionally need to dance to a modern song, including at weddings and birthday parties. Taking a modern dance class can give you some solid moves to fall back on if you need to hit the floor and can increase your confidence if you are a regular dancer at nightclubs and other occasions.

Starting a dance class as a single is a great way to get fit, meet new people and learn a new skill.
