I started ballroom dancing in April 2009 and bought my first pair of ballroom dance shoes within two weeks. This blog aims to provide how to dance tips for beginners based on my experience, including how to learn dance steps, how to know which dance to do and how to find the music beat.

My background is in teaching and learning so I have a tendency to look for ways of learning more quickly. What are the fundamentals? What do we need to know and be able to do in order to dance well over time? I will share what I find out in these pages.
