Next Installment of: “Life Lessons from my Dance Lesson”
Sure…you can move forward, but stay centered.
Last week I learned a couple more complicated Tango moves. AND…my instructor tried to fine-tune my body movement and positioning. Oh the poor guy. It was a challenge!
There was a lot of things to remember
bend your knees
rotate your shoulders
keep your balance
lift your upper body UP
Oh my god, stop the madness!!! My head was spinning.
There was one thing I did wrong the whole lesson. I let my upper body lead the rest of my body.
He called me “top heavy”, which cracked me UP!
My shoulders and torso would move ahead before my legs & feet were ready to go anywhere. Which would mean I’d push his torso to move backward. Not good!
Here we go again — I was too eager to move onto the next move and keep moving forward.
So he finally said “You should absolutely move forward, that’s good. But you have to stay centered. You move from your center. Let your center, your core, be your guide.”
Good thing to keep in mind in life, too.
Do things differently.
But stay centered.
And remember your CORE (literally and figuratively)
