Great coaching session today and I found that it is becoming easier for me to understand correction and use my toolbox to pull off changes coach is asking me to make.
(of course this is a coach I have used for years and I just get him, we communicate well)
And then this...I am moving onto a different place in dance. Sometimes it is hard but sometimes not so much so... I am being taught to stop thinking about all the technique I have been taught and instead just listen and match pro. The idea of course is that the technique is there so I no longer have to think about it. It is becoming quite liberating!
The coach expressed that this is also a learned skill and challenged me to spend a good 5-10 minutes of each session developing my listening skill.
My pro is the type of guy that loves all kind of facts and information. He told me he read an article that the highest spirtiual monk can only concentrate ore meditate on one thought completely for 8 seconds. LOL, why would I think I could concentrate on the tons of stuff in my head any longer. I think the point was stop thinking!
Awesome coaching today. So great when someone can give you so much good information in a double lesson span. I feel that I have some great new things to add to my dances... let's see if I can incorporate them over the next two weeks before USDC.
It's clicking, it's clicking, it's clicking!! Starting to feel like I'm actually dancing, not just running through routines. Funny how much more time I seem to have to play and have fun when I...well, play and have fun, and don't eat up all that time thinking.
