1-Master the basics – have a good foundation first.
Many urbankiz dancers have confidence because of cool moves – but looking at myself, first i learn them to look good, impress the lady even if the moves didnt fit or werent musical. Its better than nothing, but it usually doesnt make for good dance.
You can do cool moves with just few ladies with your same style, but to be a better dancer you should be flexible.
You can be flexible with knowing kizomba before urbankiz. Because if you take away kizomba from urbankiz there is no dance left.
2- Know how to lead – know the tools – if you know your machine you will know how to get most out of it right? Same here if you know how to lead the lady and what to adjust if something doesnt work it will give you confidence.
Jojo famously said he 100% leads everything, lady has no choice. Superb confidence.
3 – Learn how to improvise – freestyle, get out from situations.
Whats the worst that can happen during the dance? You mess up, make a mistake!
If you know how to get out of it, you will be more confident to improvise and experiment! It will be more fun as well.
– you can follow the lady, just go with her dont try to force your way
– smile – relax situation
4- practice by yourself, we talked about this in the other video. More i do it by myself the more confident i feel.
– just do whatever feels good, put music and experiment. It starts with feel and mirror lets you adjust
– then film yourself and analyse the video. A lot of times what feels good – looks really bad and then its up yo you what u do with information
– film yourself in social parties, just ask someone or better have a tripod and just dance. You must feel natural so you see the holes clearly.
5- know the music. Do you feel shy when you hear your favourite song? No! So listen to music, the more you listen the better you become.
Know the simple 1-8 counting. The most simple practice is to just count music until it becomes subconscious – 1-8,2-8…1-8, 2-8
