Today’s #Tango Thought 005: Practice (Part 1)
For most people the idea of practice is about practicing the dancing part. Not about the actual "practicing" part. Practice really wants to take apart what one does, how one does it, while asking for feedback & input. Then asking questions, and then figuring out where things aren’t working and why, to smooth out the rough edges of something, and then continually refine, and refine, and refine it so that it becomes effortless.
Unfortunately, that’s not what happens. What happens is something along the lines of dancing with someone, there’s no feedback, there’s no invitation for discussion of what’s going on, there’s no discussion at all, you dance your way what is comfortable for you without thinking about what someone else is doing and why. Is that helpful ? No. Not generally. But this is what happens. 🙁 Sadly. #SocialTango #SocialDance #ArgentineTango #TangoDancing
