Finding Your Style: Navigating the Journey of Individuality in Dance

Hey fellow dance enthusiasts! If you’re a style-seeker who’s been feeling overwhelmed about finding your own unique voice in your dance journey – this one’s for you. 😉

As a seasoned dancer, I remember the days when I was just starting out and grappling with the same question that you may be asking yourself… “How can I find my own style?”

I struggled so much with this topic myself and I wish someone had told me then that:

Your style should be the LEAST OF YOUR CONCERNS in the early stages of your dance journey.

This is the time to learn, to immerse yourself in the world of dance, to experiment with different techniques, and to focus on IMPROVING.

Because A STYLE IS A CHOICE, and you need to have a repertoire of movements and knowledge to be able to make an informed decision. Otherwise, you might find yourself simply mimicking someone else’s style instead of expressing yourself in your own way – because you don’t have a choice. 😕

So go explore different genres, nail your spins, elevate your body control, perfect your arm styling, and just enjoy the process of learning.

Believe me, the better you get, the easier it will be to develop your own unique style. My own style only emerged after 5-6 years of dedicated practice, and it’s still a work in progress. 💪

Whenever you feel lost or impatient about finding your style- take a deep breath, relax, and trust the process. Your style will come naturally when the time is right.

And remember, having a style doesn’t make anyone a great dancer either. 🤷🏻‍♀️

So keep dancing, keep learning, and have fun! I’d love to hear your thoughts on this topic, so feel free to share your thoughts in the comments.

Love, B. ❤️
