Looking for a spokes-couple!

DanceKinesis is looking for a competitor couple who would like to raise the bar on their competition dancing!

DanceKinesis wants you to represent our tried and proven world-class body, movement and dance training system created from the needs and desires of social and professional dancers worldwide. DanceKinesis turns the body's natural movement into dance, rather than forcing the body to dance through an ideology of prescribed steps, patterns and rule. Technique is then applied to natural movement only to maintain and control the rhythm, timing and styling of each dance.

Designed specifically for Ballroom and Latin dance, DanceKinesis uses the 7 Laws of Natural Movement and the 2 Natural Laws of Energy to teach the body how to create and shape movement within a specified time and space. Not only does this change the way we move, it completely changes traditional concepts of lead and follow, how we listen to music, and hear rhythms. Over the past 25 years, we have set out not to prove our program, but to disprove it. Our finding?

...DanceKinesis works!

Let us train you at a special reduced rate (the going rate for high level coaching begins at around $125/hour), and in addition, you will:

have access to our teacher/studio certification method (if you so choose)
the complete DanceKinesis Program (books, charts, DVDS, etc.
all sponsorship materials (DanceKinesis logo jacket, logo products, promos, etc.).
If you own a studio or decide to open one, our program will also give your own staff and students a profound understanding of dance and music for their own competitive edge.

For more about Percell St.Thomass and his world class dance training programs, see www.percelldance.com and www.dancekinesis.com for Argentine tango (he is also a Buenos Aires recognized, adjudicator level maestro).

Have your feet evaluated by a qualified teacher. You may be able to start in demi-pointe shoes before you go on full pointe. Start slow! You will also need to get fitted by a professional at a dance shoe shop, to make sure you get shoes suited for your feet and ability. Do not buy any pointe shoes online and just try them. Good Luck!
How hard would it be for me to start pointe?

Hi everyone!
I am a former competitive figure skater who wants to enter the world of dance. I was forced to quit skating about 3 years ago due to a severe ankle injury, but all is well now. I wish I could continue skating but the cost to skate at my level is too expensive.
I did dance (ballet and Chinese folk) when I was young and again when I was older during my years as a figure skater. I danced continuously for about 4-5 years but I wasn't allowed on pointe due to the fact that I was still skating 24/7 at the time and my coaches had fears of me ruining my feet too much.
I am now 19 years old and I would love to learn to go on pointe as a new challenging activity for me. It has been a while but I have maintained most of my flexibility (splits) and quite a bit of muscle from my years of training (and recently am working to get back all my strength). I was wondering if anyone had any idea how fast I could go on pointe, can I learn on my own or if I even can go on pointe. It would be really helpful to get some insight and even some exercises to help me get enough strength and balance to start pointe (right now I am dancing at home and will start classes when I return to New York for school).

Also, I have flexible flat feet and I've been training real hard for the last two years to strengthen my ankles.

Thanks you guys so much :)!

I use online text-to-speech and mix the sites so the phrases don't all sound the same. And I vary the text:
- Take your partner for a waltz
- Next up is a swing
- etc.

Are your examples literal or is your goal to showcase different dances? Waltz is 3/4 and all other music is 4/4; mixing Waltz with anything will be difficult but it can be done. With Latin music you can probably mix Cha-Cha and Rumba.

You will have more success matching dances to music than the other way around. Here is what I mean. Coincidentally I have a favorite selection from a movie soundtrack. It starts Bolero, then Quickstep, then Cha-Cha.

I was in a West Coast Swing class and the teacher lives WCS. She said we could do WCS to Waltz timing and she was right - just not a Waltz you like because then you want to go big.

For a Latin mix try Hi-a Ma by Milk and Sugar.

Tango and cha cha are 2 different tempos. Only way for you to do this would be to cut 2 pieces of music and run them back to back.

As for going a Waltz and Rumba, there's already a dance that combines both - Bolero. LOTS of music for that. It's a beautiful dance and if danced correctly is quit sensual/romantic.

I'm searching for an upbeat cha cha or samba song that starts slowly. Maybe with piano or guitar etc? We would love to start our dance with a few simple walzt steps and than continue with cha cha or samba. Any suggestions?

Hi, I'm currently looking for a song for our little showdance. We would love to combine one latin dance and one ballroom dance. For example chacha and tango or waltz and rumba. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks.
