What can you learn at home?

Of course, at home it is difficult to learn, for example, hip-hop, at a professional level, but it is quite possible to make yourself feel comfortable on the dance floor.

The choice of plastics is very wide. The main thing is to determine your favorite musical direction and those movements that you want to master. Consider how you can learn to dance modern dances from the video below.

Also, classes are not always held at convenient times. Online training allows you to take lessons at any convenient time, even at night. Descriptions of modern dance movements are easy to find on the Internet.
  2. Money. Any lesson in the section involves paying for the rent of the premises and the coach himself. Online courses can save you a lot of money.

The main disadvantages are:

  1. Premises. A lot of space is required for classes, and the dimensions of the apartment cannot always provide the appropriate area. The basic movements of modern dance require space.
  2. Mirror. All dancers practice their movements by looking in the mirror. This element of the interior is not always located in a convenient place.
  3. Mentor. The main disadvantage of self-learning is that there is no view from the outside. Even when making obvious mistakes, it is difficult to evaluate oneself critically. In such a situation, how to learn to dance modern dances? Video tutorials are the only option.
