WHAT IS FLOW?
Flow is a physical language, as nuanced and powerful as a verbal language. Flow uses partnership dance as the medium to learn and create. It is in its infancy, but as people learn, they will show the world what a physical language is and how amazing it can be. It even feels better than it looks.
IS FLOW DIFFERENT THAN OTHER SOCIAL DANCING?
Flow is a training structure to learn the science of partnership dance, developing the skills to dance how you choose. In short, Flow includes all music and dance styles. You can train in specific dance styles, but first, let’s teach you how to dance.
HOW WAS FLOW CREATED?
While teaching ballroom dance, I decided there must be a way to make dancing available and stimulating for everyone. The skills of dance are too valuable not to be so. My single focus is to turn dancing into a language that can be applied to everyone’s choice of music, partner, and dancing scenario, opening the doors to all, and making it as easy, fun, and fulfilling as possible. This has led to the creation of Flow, a physical language that applies to all music of today and tomorrow. Learn more About Flow Studios and why we’re different »
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I TRAIN?
Becoming fluent in a language is building the language into your muscles and out of your mind. That’s when you can get creative and relish the moment. Muscle memory is developed through consistency and experience. We recommend at least one private session and one group class a week. If so, your progress will fly.
CAN I LEARN SALSA, OR WALTZ, OR TANGO?
Yes, Flow is structured to develop movement based on the music of your choice. We can focus on a certain dance styles if you choose; however, first learning to dance and then applying these skills to specific styles of dance is a recipe for much greater success. We recommend dancing to many genres of music, really learning how to connect your movement to the music. See our demonstration of all the different dance styles here.
SHOULD I LEARN WITH OR WITHOUT A PARTNER?
Learning solo, you will learn faster because we can teach you with a more hands-on approach, and make you feel dancing. With a partner, you both are learning together, which makes for a fun “together” activity, and you can practice outside the studio.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
We recommend light shoes that stay on your feet, without rubbery soles. Tom’s are a favorite. And for clothes, wear what makes you feel cool, collected, and confident; just make sure you can dance in them.
