This week’s Video is for my mom, Babs. She wrote asking how to memorize dance sequences. You can read her post down below…
I can relate to her challenge of ‘feeling confused and fragmented’ when she has to learn something new. I know that for me, I always had a hard time remembering dance combinations and would go around and around in my head trying to ‘get it right!’
When I was actually afraid of ‘getting it wrong!’
If you are trying to make the right move and remember all the steps, then this video is also for you! Learn how to step into your ‘right’ moves!
Can you help with remembering dance sequences. I started ballet about 3 years ago (I’m 65 now), and love it but … I already have a belief that I don’t know the individual steps, and I probably stop breathing. If I get the feet right I still have to add the arms, and the head and the feeling. Aaagh! The teacher goes too fast for me. If I can do it over and over slowly, then I can do it all. Taking a video helps cos I can do it slowly at home. I watch myself and see the confusion on my face. I want it to be easy, soft, flowing, joyful, complete. I want my eyes to see it all and my body to know it all, and my heart to feel it all.
Love Babs (Mummy)
… and as I’ve just discovered, when I have something new to learn, my body seems to fragment so that I might know my arms are beautiful. but I don’t know what what my feet are doing. Please put me back together so that I can move as a fluid unit, Laura.
