Sexy bachata social dance at la bachata festival 2013
This was a really great night up at Mezzanine in SF. They had DJ’s playing a mashup of funk, soul.. Great night with my boy Victor, James, and my student Kirk.

Just pay attention to how I teach how to hold the girls hand, so it’s comfortable for her, you don’t want to make twist her Read more about Dancing at a Club:How to Connect with Your Partner[…]
My best advice for guys to improve their Dance Floor Game INSTANTLY.
I gave her my number that Tuesday night, she texted me the next day and we chatted back and forth and set up a date for Saturday. Saturday we went out to Armani Club, had a few drinks and danced a bit, then went back to my hotel and ended up having a great night. Talked some more during the week and saw her again the next week before I left to return stateside.
The first thing to be aware of is the type of clothes/material you are wearing. A simple way to stay cooler is to wear short sleeve button ups versus long sleeves. Try wearing a lighter material such as linen or cotton shirts or pants. These materials may breathe better and keep you cooler than others. Coat check your jacket at the door as extra layers will obviously make you warmer. Wearing head gear (hats,beanies) can look cool but also traps in heat so be aware there.
Without even dancing well, a man who has the confidence to get on the dance floor is way ahead of his peers, I’d say 40-60% of men at clubs never have the balls to step on the dance floor. So if you’re out there, you’re already way ahead of those dudes with their back on the walls clutching their drinks. (What is this -middle school?)

What I noticed works best for me, and when I see the biggest improvements in whatever I’m doing (Dancing, Martial Arts, working out) is if I have inspiration and competition. Whenever I feel like I’m the best at something I become very complacent. However when I see say an amazing dancer in dance class, or on my dance company, I get inspired to improve.
Don’t look at someone’s amazing talent or skill and say “I’ll never be able to be like that”. Instead say, “I want to be as good as him/her”, and know that with work you will make more amazing progress than you would ever imagine.
I’ve received many comments on my youtube.com/ClubDanceLessons Channel where people say dancing is something you have naturally or you don’t… and that you can’t learn to have rhythm and feel the groove.
These comments are complete BULLSHIT. Rhythm CAN be learned, and ANYONE can improve their body control and coordination. In 10 years of teaching I’ve seen hundreds of the most uncoordinated people in the world and I can honestly say every single one of them improved.
The most common question students ask is: “How long will it take me to get good dancing?”. My answer is : “It depends on how good you are now, how fast you learn, how much you want to learn, how often you take lessons, and how much you practice on your own.
An ideal schedule for learning (night club) dance is
