Dancing session three (which happened on Wednesday) was another step up from session two.
We switched from 8-step to 6-step. By taking out the third move of the four. I managed to not be completely confused by this, and to also learn the sendout, and outside turn. All of which you can see here in a handy 53-second video
, demonstrated by people far more competent than I.
For the first time it actually started to feel like dancing, rather than robotically following steps. And for the first time I started to feel confident in how to lead - what signals would be interpreted as the start of which steps. Still baby steps, obviously, but I can see how the learning process works, and rather than it being mysterious it's becoming something I just have to practice.
Which is probably how I came to be practising the 8-step moves in the shower, carefully counting out beats to Skrillex. I seem to have become infected.
