What do you do in that moment when you get on the dance floor and you forget everything that you’ve learned because somehow those pesky nerves kick in? Suddenly, you’ve lost all control of your mind and body and can’t remember if salsa is something you should be eating or dancing.
My advice to you is to just keep dancing! Know that muscle memory WILL kick in because you have already done that same basic step 100+ times in your private dance lessons. Followers, wait for your fearless leader to get back on track as he/she works his/her way through the process of remembering – don’t help!
Leaders: as long as you keep moving by either doing the basic step or sways, your follower won’t know that your nerves have prohibited you to remember your steps. Once your nerves have subsided, throw in one fun move at a time. There’s always another chance to dance if you can’t get them all in on that first song. Just keep moving and the fun will increase before long!I hope that this easy tip can help you feel cool, confident and at ease when walking on to any social dance floor for your first few times.
