IF WE JUST FOCUS ON LEARNING DANCE PATTERNS,
THE RESULT WILL BE THE SAME AS
WINDING OUR CLOCK WITHOUT SETTING IT.
IT WILL RUN PERFECTLY FINE,
BUT IT WON’T TELL THE CORRECT TIME.
So, next time we’re attending a dance class that focusing on technique instead of fancy patterns, and we’re feeling frustrated, we need to realize the value of this type of dance training. Training that focuses on technique and proper execution of various steps, listening to the music, and developing a solid connection with our partner is critically important. It is as crucial as setting our clock to the correct time and not just winding it! Otherwise, our bodies’ motor will be moving, but our dancing won’t be on the proper time.
In summary, going through various dance patterns without solid dance technique is like winding our clock and forgetting to set it. We need to be sure we do both. Our dancing will improve and so will our enjoyment of it.
