Find the beat

Learning how to dance is as simple as finding the beat of the music. The beat of a song determines how fast or how slow you should move your body while dancing. If your selected song has a fast beat, be prepared to move quickly.

To find the beat of a song:

  • Listen closely to the strong, heavy beats.
  • Clap your hands along with the beats to get a feel for the music.
  • Try tapping your right foot to the strong beats and your left foot to the weaker beats.
