Salsa Dancing in Toronto: How to be more confident

Toronto is THE best city in Canada for Salsa Dancing. From so many dancers you get to meet, to so many different kinds of socials, outings, and Latin clubs you can attend. Still, it can be very intimidating when you go Salsa Dancing in Toronto so here are tips on how to be more confident.

Start with lessons

Confidence always comes from competence and lessons are the safe way to built yourself up. I know it seems obvious but picking a great school where they teach you the rules, makes it easier to go to a nightclub. Some things to look for in a dance school is (they balance their ratio of partners, have a weekly curriculum and a positive vibe/energy).

Smile, smile, smile

I remember when I went dancing Salsa for the first time at a nightclub and how stressed and scared I was. I wish someone told me to just smile more because definitely, it would have helped me relax more. It’s so crazy but when you smile, it tricks your brain

Don’t sit down

When you go out to get your Salsa Dancing fix in Toronto make sure you don’t sit down. Sitting down is the easiest way to lose confidence because your energy drops, and you start overthinking, and comparing yourself to other dancers as well. My rule of thumb is, that I come in and I ask the first person that’s standing to dance.

Go with a friend

A friend in need is a friend in deed. Bring a buddy when you go dancing because everything is more fun when you have someone to lean in on. Some of my most confident nights were the moments when I would go with my classmates to a nightclub because even if the dance didn’t go well, at least I had my friends there. Having that support system is really important and boosts you up when you are Salsa dancing in Toronto.
