Tip from Gaby
Today I am going to share one of the most memorable lessons my advanced teacher gave me while I was a student. I will never forget him telling me: “Gabriela if you just keep your feet moving to the rhythm of the dance you will never be wrong!” My understanding of this lesson was that if I kept shifting my body weight from foot to foot to a Slow Quick Quick rhythm, I was going to be able to keep up with him and the music while dancing a Rumba. That gave me peace of mind and the ability to follow him and not worry about my feet all the while being able to enjoy the music as I danced with him. So I dedicated my self to learning the Rhythm of the various dances I was learning with short practices of just shifting my body weight from foot to foot to that particular Rhythm. Life on the dance floor and at parties became much easier and less stressful.
Happy dancing everyone.
To Dance is to Live,
