• Why won’t my fingers straighten when my hands are flexed?

    I am a dancer and I have started to notice that whenever I try to flex my hands, my fingers can’t straighten. The more I flex my hand the more my fingers curl. There’s a little pain and tightness in the middle of the back of my hand but I am not able to control it. Any suggestions of what it might be??

  • How to Brazilian samba dance?

    Best answer: You have only been taking classes for three weeks. I assume you don’t take class daily but once or twice a week at most. It takes time to get the moves into your body memory. It takes time to build the muscle needed to control those movements. When that happens then things will be faster. It doesn’t happen in only... show more
    Best answer: You have only been taking classes for three weeks. I assume you don’t take class daily but once or twice a week at most. It takes time to get the moves into your body memory. It takes time to build the muscle needed to control those movements. When that happens then things will be faster. It doesn’t happen in only three weeks unless you are already a professional level dancer in another genre like ballet or jazz. Be a little patient. You will get there if you stick with it.

  • How to get rid of fear/embarrassment of dancing in front of people?

    Hi, I’m a 14 year old girl who’s taken an interest in hip-hop dancing. I would love to take classes except I’m afraid of dancing/practicing in front of others. I don’t know what to do except maybe pay more for a personal dance trainer or something similar.

  • Am I supposed to do a line-dance to Mambo No. 5?

    In the second verse, there are vague instructions on how to do a line style dance to the song. My question is, are we supposed to follow these rules, or can we have a little fun with the dance?

  • Why do so many idiots think black people are such great dancers??? All black people are supposed to be good at dancing? Says who? where is?

    the proof that black people are better dancers? The most famous dancers in the world are white males (Fred Astaire, Mikhail Baryshnikov, Gene Kelly, Vaslav Nijinksky, Rudolf Nureyev, George Balanchine!). Can you name one famous black dancer??? I can't! Why would anybody think white people can't dance?... show more

Just because YOU can't dance, that doesn't mean other white people can't.

  • Can anyone learn to dance?

    I am 22 years old and I’ve never had a dance lesson in my life. A friend of mine has tried to teach me a few moves, but always says I’m way too stiff. If I start taking professional lessons could I learn to dance and be fluid in my movements, or is it just something you have to be born with

    Best answer: Are you warming up your feet before you go en pointe? Often dancers do warm ups of their body, but forget to warm up their feet as well.

  • Stretches for insanely tight hips to reach splits?

    I have very tight hips, and I saw special dance teachers that helped open my hips up when I was younger. The stretches they gave me focused mainly on my hamstrings, but it’s my thigh muscles that aren’t very flexible. Does anyone have daily stretches that I could do to be able to reach the splits even with my issue?
