How can I learn to dance at home?
You might think to yourself, “Is it possible to learn dance online?”. Though online, our sessions are interactive and allow one-on-one questioning between students and dance teachers. What makes Delhi Dance Academy’s virtual dance classes different from other online dance classes is that we ensure that by the end of every session, each and every student has their queries clarified by the instructors, gaining maximum benefits from the classes.
Currently, we are providing virtual dance classes for a range of styles, including Bollywood, Hip-Hop, Contemporary, Salsa, etc., and also for Zumba. If you’re at sixes and sevens about which dance style you should be opting for, we have a devoted web page for each dance form on our website. You may visit them to get into details and lay your confusion to rest.
Online Dance Classes for Kids:
In addition to these, our online dance classes for kids are also in much demand. Over the course of our existence, we have worked with prestigious schools like the American Embassy School (AES), The Japanese School, The French School, The British School, The Ardee School among many others. During the lockdown, we conducted amazing dance classes for around 300 students of Apeejay Schools Delhi & Mumbai (Khargar & Nerul Branch) in the past two months and have been offering online Bollywood Dance Classes to kids of The Japanese School, New Delhi since April 2020. Together with these schools, we are breaking all the barriers by offering virtual dance classes for kids. We have been receiving an overwhelming response as our little dancers continue dancing with our lessons.
We have categorized our online dance classes for kids into two, where one is the 4 to 7 years age group and the other is the 7+ to 13 year age group.
For the 4 to 7 year age group, we conduct Creative Movements dance classes – an international dance program where we use Jazz vocabulary to teach dance on Western and Bollywood music. Once you show interest in enrolling your kid into our virtual dance classes for kids, we will be dedicating 15 minutes of one-on-one student-Dance Instructor interaction via a WhatsApp video call. The first trial class would be absolutely free so that you and your child can get the measure of our quality online dance classes for kids. Upon enrolment, your child will enjoy 40 minutes of one dance session thrice a week, each packed with incredible energy. All our dance choreographies for kids are creatively instructed and implemented, such that they encourage movement and exercise. We start with a fun warm-up bout to ensure that all the students are fully charged up for the class and conclude with a gentle cool down that helps the little ones recover their respective resting states. In the middle of the classes, the faculty also introduces virtual-friendly
For the 7+ to 13 age group, the Preteens Dance Program, we run Beginners/Improvers Level Super Intensive Bollywood & Hip-Hop Choreography Course. Bollywood Dance Style is unique because it is perhaps the only dance form which is a fusion of numerous dance styles like Indian Classical, Folk, Belly Dance, and even Hip hop & Jazz at times. Bollywood Dance is entertaining, fun, and magical and gives you a real feel of what Indian culture is all about. The students will be taught dance moves which will be easy to pick up but also enjoyable. The students will also be taught the basics of Hip hop dance style where they will learn different skills and techniques of Hip hop and implement them in the choreographies later using various combinations of these techniques, the choreographies will be performed to Rap or Old School music. These classes are held on 6 days of a week, Tuesday to Sunday from 7 pm to 8 pm IST. We also have Jazz and Contemporary dance classes for this age group on weekends, Saturday & Sunday 4-5 p.m. This batch is inclusive of basic Ballet/Jazz techniques that would help the students evolve with a better body posture and body language, musts for any dancer. In this dance program, we mostly do lyrical-contemporary choreographies on Western music along with some Bollywood numbers occasionally..

How Do Virtual Dance Classes Differ From Live Classes?
Ever found yourself getting swayed by how others are performing in a live dance studio class? Well, it happens many times that students look at others in the mirror while learning or revising a choreography only to find themselves getting distracted from giving their best shot. The odds of this can be highly reduced during online dance classes. As you can pin the video of a particular person in a meeting during a dance lesson conducted online, you get to focus only on what your choreographer is teaching and on your own dance moves, without getting distracted by others’ performances. What else? You can also privately send messages to an individual in a meeting. Hence, you do not have to shy away anymore in bringing up your queries. You can simply drop a private message to your dance teacher and they will answer it while keeping you anonymous. It is no doubt a great feature but we recommend you to be outspoken about your issues within any given meeting, as our instructors are always ready to happily assist you.
Online Dance Competition:
In addition to our dance programs online, we are also conducting online dance competitions and you can learn more about that on our social media pages.
Why Are We The Best Dance Classes Online?
Various other social media and educational platforms are also providing online dance courses and classes but with these, you might not get a chance to clarify your doubts or gain more knowledge. For example, you may find pre-recorded dance video lessons or online dance classes on YouTube, but both could be hard to follow as the instructor would not be able to resolve all your queries during the lesson. With DDA’s online classes, you get the best of both worlds. On one hand, you get to learn amazing dance moves and also chill out virtually with one another, leaving no room for not feeling the vigor of a studio class. On the other hand, while enjoying live, interactive dance classes online, you also avail yourself of tutorial dance videos following every class so that you can practice as and when you want to.
Ever since we took to the virtual platform, we have had students enrolled for online dance classes from India and overseas. If you are still searching “online dance classes near me”, we are just a login away. If you’re still not sure, we invite you to attend our first online dance class free of cost and make a smart move.
