~~ The Dance tip this week is about learning a skill.

Judy & I teach many beginner classes and this tip is primarily for those "newer" dancers but also applies to many of you who are working on a new pattern, improving your technique or learning a completely new dance style.

If you are a student of dance you now realize that learning to dance is learning a skill. One analogy I always use relates to learning to ride a bicycle. Get together a group of students, prop a bike up at the front of a classroom and use every teaching tool at your disposal. Every tool except letting them get on the bike. Every book, visual aid, prop, demonstration, etc, will not teach those student how to ride a bike unless you let them get on that bike.

Everyone I ever asked "How did you learn to ride a bike" offered almost the same answer. "I learned by getting on one, someone showed be how, and within a short time I had the basics"

If you are new to dancing please remember this analogy. Some one always needs to show you how but then the rest is up to you. Both activities are very relaxing, rewarding, and are great exercise.

Once you are up and going you have the ability to reach any level that you are physically capable of. All it takes is more time practicing and someone to help you with your direction.
