Everybody likes to let their hair down, relax and have a good time. The question at a work event is, how do you know if and when you’ve got permission to shake off corporate formality. Often enough people only allow themselves to go wild with alcohol, which may not be the best thing to do amongst your work colleagues.
A wholesome alternative is to let me guide you into a socially acceptable way of totally celebrating life.
These are my four ways to break the ice at a corporate Christmas party
1. Book a Flamenco show
Flamenco is a passionate dance full of fire. Watching a fiery Flamenco performance together, will melt stiffness and social anxiety away.
2. Add mingling to your Flamenco show
After the performance, you’re invited to take pictures with the dancer. This is great for your company social media and creates beautiful memories you can look back on.
3. Learn some Flamenco moves together
Everyone can dance, even when they have two left feet and no rhythm. Flamenco may be a very complex dance, but at its simplest level it’s accessible to all. Simply follow the moves I am demonstrating and you won’t be able to help but feel powerful and beautiful. And that is a great feeling to enjoy altogether!
4. Set those endorphins free
Dancing is fun. At the end of the day it’s simple chemistry: jumping about and moving to music sets free endorphins, which make you feel happy and free. Without you even noticing, I will encourage you and guide you through the dancing until you suddenly forget that you thought you couldn’t dance and you simply enjoy being alive and sharing this wonderful moment with your colleagues.
Instead of alcohol, let dance do the ice breaking.
