How to be elegant dance music?
Enthusiasm for elegant dance can be contagious, and one Melbourne-based dance producer is taking it to the next level.
A new Instagram account is encouraging its followers to post their favourite tunes to inspire the next generation of talented dancers.
“It’s really hard to get traction, so we wanted to make sure we didn’t disappoint our audience,” says Alex Vann, the creator of the new Instagram page.
“We’re not going to be the only dance producer out there that’s trying to make a good-looking video and we think we’ve done the best job yet.”
Alex Vann’s Instagram account has been creating videos to inspire aspiring dancers to pursue their dream of becoming an elite dance producer.
“I think that the next couple of years are going to see more people taking the dance industry to the masses and it’s going to get better,” he says.
“If we can just get our people to dance, we’ll be fine.”
Vann’s music is a mix of hip-hop, jazz, funk and soul, and his Instagram account includes the latest dance videos from the likes of M.I.A, Beyoncé, Bruno Mars and more.
Instagram has become a social media platform for young dance producers and has a huge audience that can support Vann.
With his followers on Instagram, Vann can promote his own videos and gain exposure.
For his next project, Venn is encouraging his fans to tag him with a tag of their favourite dance song, then posting a video of the video on Instagram.
Users can post a video and tag their favourite song.
The video is then added to Vanns Instagram feed, where the next day, the fans can vote on which video is their favourite.
Vann says the videos will be shared with his fans, and he hopes to keep a few new videos going.
He says he wants to encourage people to start dancing, and to help them discover their own style of dance.
If you want to become an elite dancer, you’ve got to start learning how to make dance videos.
“If you’re a dancer, if you’re going to learn how to dance and start making dance videos, I would encourage you to tag yourself with the dance song that you’re most excited about, or with a hashtag of that dance song,” Vann says.
“Then the next time you see a video, if it’s your favourite, tag it with that hashtag and that’s your dance song.”
Alex Venn, creator of Instagram page @instagramofficial, says he hopes the next few years are more popular than the previous ones.
Alex is a Melbourne-raised father of three who has been making music since he was nine.
