Taking All Corrections as Your Own

Just a short post for this evening. I wanted to do a short post on how to be more productive in your dance classes. In most of your classes i’m sure the teacher takes time to assist each student when they need it. But what do you do in this time? Many teachers, like myself, encourage the class to keep practicing the move rather than just standing there, not doing anything.

However, not matter how big or small the correction given to the other students is, always take it on board. Think of their correction as your own, this will help you correct your own mistakes you may even be unaware of. Observing how another student is correcting their own mistakes can help you visualise how to improve your performance. Throughout your classes always think about how you can improve your own performance and use those around you to help you do this.

I know this post was only short but i believe this to be valuable advice to help you improve your performance. While also helping you begin to think for yourself and not just relying on the teacher’s individual corrections.
