Like these instruments, each on their own rhythm/melody, so is Life.
We should stop expecting everyone to be the same, or play the same melody.
In some cases, it's impossible, but each has their role and importance. There would be no without diversity and inclusion... !!πŸŽΆπŸ’ƒπŸ½πŸŽ΅πŸ•ΊπŸ½πŸŽΆ

Different activity but same principle applies in everything we do.
We won't improve without practicing.

I know, it sounds elementary, but I think most people than not (myself included), have difficulties in carving out time for consistent practice. That is our reality, but it doesn't help us build/grow into our expectations or the dance image we carry of our self.

Once the mind is able to intellectualize something, and we can write a book about that subject, we might easily skip on practicing, the work to fully embody what we learn.

Practice is a necessity for improvement and embodiment.
Knowing it doesn't mean we have it down, and a little bit goes a long way. It keeps the mind engaged so that we don't feel like a stranger on the dance-floor every time we set foot into a dance class. And yes, your instructor (if they care) will know instantly whether you practiced or not as soon as you start moving πŸ˜…

Why take classes? πŸ€”

Food for thought:

Imagine being a street fighter that wants to compete in the UFC.
Sure, you are a GREAT street fighter, a fantastic brawler, but once you got to the UFC, you realize that to excel, or reach your highest potential, more training and understanding is needed;

a different understanding of timing, technique, and some serious to gain confidence for the octagon and keep up with the evolution of the fight game.

If we change fighting to dancing , this is where dance studios come in, and what I believe should be one of the primary intentions and reasons for stepping into that space.

It's a place to work on your timing, improve technique, and evolve your dance practice. To bring about your dance transformation.

There is a difference (not saying good or bad) between brawlers and street fighters from those who go to train at Jackson Wink MMA Academy. Also, there is a whole nother distinction to highlight. The casual consumer of the fight game versus those consumed by it. Either-or, some level of dedication is needed for improvement. That's a whole other topic of discussion tho.

Ultimately, I believe that the union of having both street prowess (idea, ability, or essence) and gym or studio fight/dance training is what, hopefully, will create the well-rounded fighter/dancer πŸ™πŸΎ #π’˜π’†π’”π’‰π’π’–π’π’…π’ƒπ’†π’…π’‚π’π’„π’Šπ’π’ˆ! πŸŽΆπŸ’ƒπŸΎπŸŒŸπŸ•ΊπŸ½πŸŽ΅

..and why proper technique?

Much and to everyone who came through this week... ! πŸ€—

Tonight's musicality class was a tough one.
The exercises that we do take some getting used to, but being able to dance on time in/with a steady continuous flow, having the understanding to change your timing to dance to rich assortment of instruments/rhythms, play, and transition back into your steps-patterns without missing a beat is a different kind of freedom on the dance floor :) ! πŸŽ΅πŸ’ƒπŸΎπŸŽΆπŸ•ΊπŸΎ
