My own theory is that beginning to dance usually correlates with an "opening" in one's life of some kind...something in the person is ready to be found and felt and expressed. So they start their lessons, and moving around physically, and it starts activating that 2nd chakra in the pelvis, which is all about both physical and emotional movement, and desire, and connection and intimacy. You get someone who's had a sleepy 2nd chakra for any length of time, and stuff is gonna start pouring out! They start to feel the *pleasure* of movement and the proximity of such warmth and connection and *feeling*. Within the pool of instructors, the new dancer gravitates to the one that feels "right", unaware of all the powerful dynamics that such a simple thing touches upon. And suddenly...*crush*. Painful or not, there's a lotta good stuff that gets brought to the surface during such times.
