Scott joined our pilot month of The UMA Dip- our program designed for the absolute beginner. Hear about how his experience went!
I’ve casually seen the UMA Instagram page over the last year and was always curious in taking a class but then I remembered my dancing abilities consisted of watching YouTube tutorials videos to keep up with the latest dance trends. After that moment of clarity, I realized I had no business being in a dance class. It wasn’t until this past fall, I was in my best friend’s wedding where all the groomsmen had to do a choreographed dance. I loved the experience of learning the choreography and performing the dance at the reception. Fast forward to this past holiday break, I saw Vince post about the UMA Dip program starting in January and I was IMMEDIATELY hooked. I was like if there was ever a time to try out dance classes in a structured, friendly, and nonjudgmental environment, this would be it. So, I decided to take the plunge and signed up.
Absolutely no regrets at all and by far one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I’ve loved getting out of my comfort zone and having new experiences and this program was perfect for that. The people at UMA are all so welcoming and the close-knit community is what I’m looking forward to getting to know as I pursue my journey of dance. I’m very excited to immerse myself in all the different types of dance classes and enjoy the process of becoming a competent (and hopefully decent) dancer
Shoutout to Ricky and Helen for being amazing dance instructors and providing knowledge, expert instruction, and patience while making it fun and engaging. Shout to Kayla for coordinating the program and keeping us updated on everything happening each week. Lastly, shoutout to Lilli for the expert insight and providing all the ins and outs of UMA during our 1v1 consultation as I navigate this new path of dancing.
If anyone has even a slight interest in taking this program, I would dive in and don’t hesitate. NO RAGRETS!
Why I was interested in learning how to dance:
I think dance is the sincerest form of self-expression that anyone can do. The creativity involved of getting in tune with your body, internalizing how a movement should feel, and expressing that through your own lens is pretty special and unique.
