Freestyle dancers do not need to take formal lessons. Freestyle dance is about how each dancer responds to music with their body. This response is very individualistic and cannot be taught.
To dance freestyle, dancers move their body to music in a way that feels right and complements the music. Dancers can develop moves they like and experiment with different styles and transitions. Beginners should include claps or snaps to stay on the music's beat. It can also help to watch other freestyle dancers for inspiration. The most important part of freestyle dance is to have fun and connect with the music.
