Everyone has the ability to dance if they so choose, but let’s face it—not everyone is very talented. and that’s OK. Dancing should be fun. It’s an enjoyable activity that may also be utilized for exercise and stress relief. It’s also used in school activities, so you can guarantee it has educational benefits as well. If you’ve observed, when people hear a song with a compelling beat, their initial impulse is to sway or bob their head to the music.
Dancing is both literally and metaphorically moving.
Children and adults alike express their excitement via dance, thus the name “happy dance.” Nothing beats getting up and moving, shaking off the stress and negative emotions, letting go, and dancing it all away. But, as we already stated (and this is only presenting facts), not everyone is exceptional at it. That is why it requires tremendous skill to create choreography on the fly, in front of fellow dancers and an excited audience anxious to see what the dancers can bring to the table.
Dancers who watch Dance Geek Productions’ Swingtacular can learn more, meet other dancers, get feedback and advice from professional dancers, and share their creativity and dancing skills with the group and other people.
The goal of the dance production is to “give current and possible contestants a chance to improve their skills.”
However, it is not like a typical dance class, where students arrive at a facility, learn, and then leave. Through a training ground with a competitive structure called The Jack and Jill, they are given the opportunity to develop their talents in dance and make overall progress.
Watch how this couple got up and put on a show to remember for a better grasp of how it works. Nick King and Victoria Henk were seated in a row onstage when the announcer read their names off his cue card and announced them as the first couple to dance. The two were just warming up and stretching when the music started, prompting King to look up and act in astonishment.
Then he took the lead, and Victoria impressed everyone with her fantastic skills.
The audience liked them from the moment they sat on the floor with their legs spread until the moment they started dancing by gently standing up with undeniable style and attitude.
The criteria were that each pair had to dance to two songs, one slow and one fast, and boy, did these two dance. They started with a mellow song and did not disappoint. Nick and Victoria didn’t seem at all concerned about having to jump up and improvise at the moment. They were able to blend their styles and skills so well that it was fascinating to watch them perform.
Nick and Victoria were amped and ready to crush it with the fast song, gliding around the floor, swinging their hips in sync with the beat, and executing the odd twirls and dips. When Ciara’s “1, 2, Step” came on, the two dancers knew they had to bring it.
What made it even more intriguing was how the couple just appeared to be having fun dancing.
There was no stress or pressure, and the two were able to show their routine and fun through a variety of facial expressions.
Nick and Victoria really set the bar high by including edgier, sexier motions that heightened the atmosphere of the music.
When two dancers are brought together for a swing improvisation, immediate dance chemistry is developed. Fortunately for us all, Nick and Victoria delivered an unforgettable performance.
Watch as their fellow dancers stared in astonishment, nodding and cheering them on. We think that the duo’s personality and routine showed style and talent, and that they definitely broke the ice and reminded their fellow dancers (both in the room and at home) of what dancing is all about: self-expression wrapped in individuality and creativity.
