Do you love ballroom dancing? If yes, you know the kind of dedication and hard work this dance form requires. It’s elegant, beautiful, and fun. Now, if we list ballroom dances, we’ll run out of time. There are so many of them: Waltz, Jive, Cha-Cha, Foxtrot, and many many more! But regardless of the dance form you pick, you should be able to ace it. So, here are some tips that can help you improve your ballroom dancing game.
Perfect the closed dance hold
If you’ve seen the closed dance hold, you might know that the woman is slightly tilted towards the man’s right in this position. More so, in this move, the couple’s feet are a bit offset so that one partner’s right foot can step between the other’s feet. This posture is vital because you may step on your partner’s toes if you do it wrong.
Practice makes perfect
We’ll not list ballroom dances here, but pick any, and you’ll know that two things are common with all forms. One, they require timed movements, and two, there’s a particular posture that you’ve to follow. To get hold of these two prerequisites, you need to practice a lot. Besides, practice will help you understand your body’s movement and make it easy for you to sync it with your partner.
Take ballroom dance lessons consistently
Be it private, group, or online sessions, you need to continue sharpening your dance knowledge. Getting certain things wrong time after time can be frustrating. But continue to learn. Plus, only a professional can teach you the proper technique. So don’t miss your lessons.
Maintain the posture
For a man to check his posture, he needs to stand with his back against a wall and then take this straight alignment onto the dance floor. If you’ve ever been to a ballroom dance class, you’ll know that teachers usually talk about the front line, top line, and Medline. When your posture is correct, your dance will look regal and majestic on the dance floor.
Wear comfortable shoes
If your heels feel pressured or your toes are pinched, you won’t dance well. Thus, when you go dancing, pick out the shoes that you’re most comfortable in. Only after you dance in a couple of pairs will you see the difference and find the best footwear for you.
Go out dancing regularly
For perfecting ballroom dancing, you need that real-world experience. So, go out to ballroom dance parties, a nightclub, or any studio for social dancing. Also, when you look at other dancers better than you, you improve.

Treatments available for different stages of metastatic renal cell carcinoma
Cancer that spreads beyond its source of origin is termed as metastatic cancer, which in case of kidney cancer results in a condition called metastatic renal cell carcinoma. Stage 4 kidney cancer is most advanced and at this point, cancer starts spreading to vital organs in the body through a process called metastasis. Metastasis causes the cancer cells to spread through tissues in the affected areas or thorugh the lymph system in your body and your bloodstream leading to advanced stages of metastatic renal cell carcinoma.
It is only logical to opt for viable treatments for renal cell carcinoma since advanced stages develop when this condition is untreated. Treatment options for renal cell carcinoma and metastatic renal cell carcinoma include:
Surgical resection: Two distinct types of surgical resections namely partial nephrectomy and radical nephrectomy is advised for treating stage 1 renal cell carcinoma. At stage 1, cancer mainly affects the kidney and has not yet spread to other vital organs through tissue, lymph system or bloodstream. Surgical procedures are possible only in those cases where cancer or tumor can be isolated for treatment before metastasis. Also, surgery is an option which is available for patients who are in the early stages of renal cell carcinoma. Patients who have advanced stages have to rely on alternative methods.
Immunotherapy: This is a biological therapy which involves the use of drugs to manipulate the immune system, making it a targeted approach for destroying cancer cells. Advanced stages, however, will need more than medications to tackle the cancerous cells.
Embolization: Embolization is a process wherein a substance is used to obstruct the blood vessels which blocks the flow to cancerous cells. Since cancer cells can be carried by the bloodstream to vital organs in metastasis, embolization helps block the blood flow to stop this transmission. However, there is a drawback of this targeted approach since the blood flow to healthy organs will also get blocked which in turn leads to many health complications.
Radiotherapy: Another targeted approach to destroy cancer cells using high-energy radiation. However, radiotherapy cannot be used if cancer has already spread to other vital organs and parts in your body which is why it is not effective against advanced stages of cancer. Supportive care for stages after metastasis include palliative radiotherapy for targeted treatment of metastatic renal cell carcinoma.
The chances of a healthy recovery will depend on the severity of the condition and also the on the patient. Factors like the stage of the disease, age and general health of the patient must be considered while assessing the prognosis.
