    Thank you for all the great videos you post, you are amazing instructors and look so good together. I decided to start watching your videos so I can feel more I can feel more confident when I go out with friends and when I’m at weddings. I want to look good on the dance floor. I like the energy and feeling I get when I dance, like a good workout but more. Thank you both.

      Hello Jeffrey,
      Thank you for sharing! You are very welcome. Just like any habit/ skill, confidence can be built and improved. The more you do something, the more confident you can get, especially if you go out there with an attitude of fun and energy. If you want to share your dancing with us sometime, we’d love to see it. 🙂 (can DM us on FaceBook/ Instagram)

    Hi Liwen & Tytus,
    Happy Thanksgiving!🦃 I am thankful for all your online videos and courses. Plus you guys are amazing together💃🕺
    The most thing I want to have now for my dancing is Strength and balance. Dancing is my passion and I set up a goal for competing next year. I always very active and stretch religiously everyday. However I suffered couple injuries form “Dancer’s Foot” (Sesamoiditis), to strain my right knee and 3 weeks ago, I hurted my lower back after swimming 😫. My doctor told me that I am very flexible yet not strong for a dancer. Maybe that’s the reason I have found myself struggling with certain figures and balance on my feet.
    Would you please give me some advice? BTW, I started to exercise my Latin Feet and Rumba Footwork following Liwen’s tutorials on YouTube. Very very helpful!👍
    Thank you both!

      Hello Jia,
      Happy Holiday weekend to you too! Staying injury free is one of the most important things for longevity in dancing. So, always listen to your body and if something doesn’t feel good, our philosophy is to leave it alone right when you feel it.

      For balance/ strength, those Latin feet and balance exercises that I show in my tutorials work really well. Also, include a daily core workout to help protect and strengthen your back – you can follow these workouts here on our website:
      https://www.danceinsanity.com/tutorial/5-minute-exercises-6-pack-abs/
      https://www.danceinsanity.com/tutorial/5-exercises-minutes-improve-balance/

      Since your focus is on Strengthening and balance, I would highly recommend the “Intro to spins course”
      https://www.danceinsanity.com/courses/introduction-to-spins/
      In this course, you will do a ton of balance and strengthening drills that can benefit you. When you improve your spins, your balance for dancing in general totally changes and improves. So, check it out.

      I’ve often heard people (including trainers/ doctors) say: parts that are flexible aren’t strong, and the parts that are strong aren’t flexible. I can see their point, but I don’t totally agree. I think flexibility built FROM strength is the best. Sounds like since you are naturally bendy-flexy, you want to do exercises that help strengthen and create more flexibility in those areas. Where are you most flexible?

      Love that you already have your goal in mind to compete next year! 🙌🏼 Keep us posted on your progress. 😊

    I’ve got 2 USA Dance National Titles, standing ovations from hundreds of people, & multiple World Championship experiences, but, what I don’t have is one decent video I’m proud to show people. What is the secret to looking good on camera??? You 2 look great in all your videos. Please share the secret.
    ps: I love the sexy hips course and am going to sign up for the Spins and Rumba courses now. Thank you.

      Hi Andrew! Glad you’re loving the sexy hips course and liking how we look in our videos. The secret is to eat a lot of Goji Berries… just kidding of course. I’ll give you two quick ideas: one for dancing, and the other for video production:
      For the dancing, when you practice, try to create a self feedback loop, besides using the mirror. The mirror can give you immediate feedback, but it can also take you out of what you’re doing in that moment, into what you’re seeing 10 or 20 feet away. So, to practice for looking good on camera, try to actually video yourself daily and work on a section you know will be videoed, then watch it and see what looks good, and self correct.
      For video production, remember that you really want your outfit to be different in color from the environment. This is huge for standing out on the dance floor, as well as on video. Usually all guys wear black, and it can actually be difficult to even see much of the movement when translated through video. So go for colors that are as far away from the environment as possible, to stand out better (obviously wear colors that you feel comfortable in too, so all pink may stand out, but may not be exactly the most masculine thing in the world). If you absolutely must wear black, another option you may consider, use edging or piping that has a color on your outfit along the long lines of the body. I realize getting new outfits sometimes is impractical because costumes can be costly. But you can even use contrasting colored practice outfits and just video yourself and see if it changes the way your movements are captured. Just something to consider. Hope that helps, let me know how it goes.
      We’re excited to help you get back your title in 2019!
      All the best, Tytus

      Hello Andrew! Very happy to have you dancing with us here at Dance Insanity! One quick tip about looking good on videos.. to add on to what Tytus has said. How we feel about the way we dance, and how it looks on camera can be vastly different. So, to merge the feeling with how it actually looks on camera will take some practice. But totally do-able. We’d love to see a video of you sometime. Feel free to share with us on FB or email. 🙂
