It really is a soul dance that makes you feel alive
You are not going to find another video like this! I own a ton of dance instructional DVDs and this is definitely at the top of my favorites list. It is a lot of fun and I really believe that it gives people with no experience whatsoever all the way up to advanced dancers the tools that they need for becoming freestyle house dancers. Basically what Jardy does is teach a few simple base moves and then gives a whole bunch of optional transitional moves. Transitional moves are what you do in between moves to connect the two moves together; which ultimately makes the dance look cool and smooth. Now here is the thing that is so awesome about this video…..let’s be honest learning a bunch of transitions sounds pretty time consuming and even a little boring right?
But with just a few simple moves and Jardy’s unique transitions you can make a really cool, fun and dynamic dance out of it,
not to mention you are learning transitions, which are essential to becoming a freestyle dancer!! It is so cool to go back to Jardy’s basic house moves playlist and have a light bulb pop on in your head that says that you can switch from one move to another using one of the transitions you just learned from this video.What else is cool about this video is just like in his YouTube tutorials Jardy breaks moves down into really simple and easy to understand terms. I have to be honest after seeing some of this guy’s sick freestyles I was slightly nervous to try and talk about dance with him, not to mention send him a video of myself dancing (I am very new to house dance and even dance in general). But
he really makes an effort to understand common problems people have and figures out ways to explain things in simple terms people can actually understand. This is truly a unique must have video.
I remember as a kid back in the late 80’s or maybe early 90’s going on that big golf ball ride at Disney World. It is basically a movie ride that talks about the history of technology. At the end of the ride they had a section that talked about what the future would like. They showed a kid in America talking to a kid in china on his computer. Basically they were talking about the internet. I just thought it was the coolest thing in the world. Then my adult life I developed an interest in foreign languages. I studied abroad in Spain and really wanted to go to China and learn Chinese but couldn’t really afford it. So I started taking Chinese classes online via Skype. It was so cool because I was basically doing what I saw in the Disney world ride. I don’t want to get too emotional but it was kind of a magical experience for me. Haha. Actually this has been a really cool experience for me also. I wanted so bad to find a house dance class in my area but couldn’t. Being able to learn from the guy who introduced this style to me definitely eases my pain. Haha. Another cool thing about online study is there is no commute time and it is flexible.
Let’s be honest it is hard to make friends in adulthood.
One of the best ways to connect with others is through a passion. When you meet someone who loves dance like you do you definitely instantly connect with them. What I really love about house dance also is how free in nature it is.
I mean yes there are some basic foundational concepts but it really is a soul dance that makes you feel alive to do. Also I feel like most people in house dance are very open minded and positive people. Let’s be honest in a lot of other dance styles if you go on YouTube you will see tons of negative comments and criticism that people are not doing the moves properly and such.
