Learning To Dance In SL

LEARNING TO DANCE IN SL 110929


This note is for people just beginning to dance in SL using a HUD. It is a step-by-step guide. It takes effort and money to become a really good dancer in SL, but WOW!!! it is so much fun.

=====

STEP 1 -  GET A GOOD DANCE HUD (Heads Up Display)

Buy a good Dance HUD (Huddles EZAnimator Delux HUD or Fleursoft HUD).

=====

STEP 2 - SET-UP THE HUD

Both the Huddles and Fleursoft HUDs come with a lot of instructions. Read them and set up your HUD. If you need help, IM me and I will assist you. The Huddles website and Fleursoft website are also helpful.

=====

3 - ADD DANCES TO YOUR HUD

The Huddles HUD comes with three lousy dances. Using the instructions that come with the HUD you can see the three dances inside the HUD using edit and you can see what a notecard looks like. The Huddles instructions tell you how to load dances. The Fleursoft HUD does not have any dances and the instructions tell you how to load dances. You can buy dances at Dance Makers.

Also you can find free dances using this notecard. There are also free dances in the DANCE QUEENS Freebie Dance pack that is updated about once every two months for DANCE QUEENS members.

Money is always an issue so here is a list of good first dances to get

=====

STEP 4 - START DANCING

At first you will probably want to dance individually using your dances. After you become confident about your HUD and begin to learn your dances, you will start to invite others to dance with you. One of the things you will realize is that navigating in your HUD takes effort.


=====

STEP 5 - MAKE NOTECARDS

Huddles instructions tell you how to make notecards. Once you start using notecards, you can benefit from what others have done.

=====


STEP 6 - BECOME A TRUE DANCE QUEEN (OR KING)

First learn Freestyle choreography or attend a class that I give occasionally

Once you learn Freestyle then learn Sequenced Choreography or attend a class that I occasionally give
=====


STEP 7 - HELP AND BE HELPED

DANCE QUEENS is a group that is for learning about dancing and sharing so we all become better and have more fun. Almost every day dance information is added to this blog and sent out in daily notices. As you learn things new, contact me and I will include it in a Daily Notice to share with all.

Please send additions and corrections to me.
