Stuck at home during the COVID-19 outbreak? Want to bust a move while socially distant? Here are some ways that you can keep moving and grooving during quarantine!
Edit: Scroll down to the bottom of this post to check out the new safety measures we are implementing as we welcome students back into the studio.
Practice in the mirror
Do you have a full length mirror at home? Or, can you set up your phone or computer to record yourself doing some exercises? Both are great to sharpen your eye and see for yourself what you may want to work on with your instructor. Maybe you can catch what your instructor has suggested to work on as well!
Here’s a tip: practice slowly without music first to learn what each movement should feel like, then increase the speed slowly.
Turn up the music
Just like at a practice party, moving to the music with the intention of having fun (and with improvement as a wonderful side-effect) can be beneficial! Dance with your broom while you sweep the floor, or dance over to the pantry to grab a snack. Set time aside while working at home to take a mental break and shake it! If you’re not sure where to start, we have a blog post on how to dance to some popular songs.
Keep an eye on social media
Arthur Murray studios all over the world are finding their own innovative ways to keep students moving at home. Keep up with what they are doing and join in on the fun on the Arthur Murray Facebook page here. The Arthur Murray NYC Broadway is going live on Instagram every day at noon. Tune in to their live daily dance along and have some fun with an instructor right there on your phone! Or, try the Arthur Murray 30 day dance challenge and see some of your favorite coaches teaching their favorite exercises!
We at Arthur Murray of Danbury are offering virtual private lessons, and they are a hit! We have found that it’s a great way to increase confidence in your own dancing, balance, control and styling. If you have internet and a device (phone, laptop or tablet) with a webcam, then text 203-792-0176 or email [email protected] to schedule yours today!
As we begin the journey of opening our doors back up to in-person private lessons, we want to let you know what we are doing to keep everyone safe! There will only be one private lesson happening at a time, and you have the option of choosing between a regular or touchless session. We are also still offering virtual lessons, so if you feel uncomfortable about coming into the studio you can still work on your technique from afar!
We currently have a new student special going on, so if you want to boost your confidence and improve your physical and mental health, contact us today! Purchase four virtual lessons and get one free to try dancing in the comfort and safety of your home.
