在看Frank Trace(Duck Soup編舞者)的網站,發現有下列這些資料,我覺得講得佷有意思,特別複製翻譯供大家用心去體會

My 10 IMPORTANT RULES to remember about learning to Line Dance:

 排舞十項重要守則

1. Smile, relax and have fun. 微笑,放鬆,盡情歡樂

2. Be patient.  You would be one in a million if you stepped on the dance floor and did everything perfectly. 

耐性:如果你在跳舞場地很有耐性把每個動作做得完美,你將會是萬中選一的高手

3. Practice.  If you really want to get into line dancing you must practice and don’t give up.  Get out on the floor and keep trying.

重覆練習:如果要融入排舞世界,要不斷練習,不能放棄,嘗試去表演

4. Come often.  If you really want to become a proficient line dancer you need to dance at least twice a week.

經常性:如果你希望成為排舞高手,每週至少要練習二次

5. Ask questions.  Ask for a step or sequence to be repeated if you don’t get it.  The speed and detail in which I teach, depends on the average ability of the students.

問問題:針對每個不瞭解的舞步跳的順序加拍從頭起跳都儘量請老師說明白,自己要記清楚

6. Attend Dance Parties.  The best way to enjoy and remember line dances is to attend our monthly Line Dance Parties.

參加Party:在排舞Party中不僅會很開心,還會對舞步更加深記憶

7. As a beginner, don’t let the “styling” of more advanced dancers confuse you.

初學者:以自己的風格漸進,不要讓排舞高手混淆你的舞步,

8. Stay in straight lines.  Line dancing looks confusing and messy if it isn’t danced in lines.

直線排排跳:排舞如果沒有儘可能排一直線對齊跳會顯得很混亂

9. Keep your steps small and movements somewhat reserved.  Especially if the dance floor is crowed.

避免不習慣擁擠的場地,無法施展舞步,任何時候試著練習動作小點的舞步跳法

10. Dance as if no one is watching!

自得其樂,不用在意別人的眼光

DANCE FOR THE HEALTH OF IT! 有益健康的排舞

I want to remind everyone that there is a very important health aspect to LINE DANCING.  我要提醒大家一個排舞健康的觀念

It has been proven that regular exercise can improve the quality of life, reduce stress and even become a healing factor. 

經過證實持久性的運動能改善體能,減少壓力,達到治療功效

Dancing is a wonderful and enjoyable source of exercise and can improve muscle strength, flexibility and coordination while giving you a great aerobic workout. 

跳舞是既美好又快樂的運動來源,能增進肌肉的強度,柔軟性和協調性

Mental benefits of line dancing are now starting to come forward. 

排舞是有益於精神面的調劑現已被提出來討論

I have students coming up to me all the time with stories of how line dancing has helped them cope with life’s everyday pressures. 

我常聽到學生們告訴我排舞幫助他們面對生活上的各種壓力

Believe me when you are on the dance floor or taking a dance lesson, you can’t think of anything else. 

相信我,當你站在舞池學排舞的那一刻開始,你不會再想其他的事

You are too busy concentrating on your foot work and remembering the step sequence.

因為你必需全神貫注在忙你的左右腳移動,並且在努力記舞步的順序

Memorization is another plus for mental good health. 

增強記憶力是跳排舞在精神層面上另一項收穫

Studies have shown that people who move their bodies by performing some type of memorized routine, have good longevity and a reduced risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.

也就是說,學跳排舞的人因為要記熟每一舞步,除了可以更長壽之外,也降低得到老年痴呆症的機率

The bottom line is this … emotionally and physically, dancing is one of the best activities for both fun and good health. 

最後,不論在精神上或身體上,排舞是得到歡樂和健康的最佳選擇

So get up off that couch and sign up for a line dance class. 

所以主動去找老師加入排舞訓練

You can improve the quality of your health.

你一定可以發現你擁有更健康的生活

From kids to grandparents … age is not a limiting factor with Line Dancing.  It’s a FUN AND HEALTHY THING TO DO FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY!

從小孩到老人,年齡不是問題,體重不是壓力,身高不是距離,性別不用歧視,信心最重要,排舞真的是適合你們全家的活動

FRQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION 常見問題

Q Can you teach me to line dance, even if I have two left feet?

我沒有右腳,可以跳排舞嗎?

A  -  Yes, if you have the “will” you will be able to learn any type of dancing.  The key is NOT to give up, everyone learns at a different pace.  Some people simply need more time, review and practice.  Don’t be hard on yourself.  Relax, have fun and laugh at your mistakes.

只要你願意沒什麼不可以,重點在不能放棄,照自己的學習速度,依自己的需要去自我預習,練習,複習,不要太為難自己,放輕鬆你會得到快樂,而且會開心對待每個跳錯的舞步

Q  -  Do real men dance? 男人可以跳排舞嗎?(真是個好問題) A  -  Absolutely!  Women love men who can dance.  With the popularity of the TV show “Dancing With The Star”, men are finally getting the message. 

當然!女人最愛會跳舞的男人
