yes sometimes I wonder if some of the top coaches who now teach mostly social (as is with our state) just forget about those things? You re right you cannot learn it all at once but I don't think it should take years either.
I just came back from the Championship Dance Camp outside of Washington. Anna Mikhead did two lectures on 6 of the positions in dancing and used pictures and danced steps to show what they were and the importance of knowing them. Ieva Pauksena also uses this in teaching.
If I described all the things you had to learn to be able to take and pass a driving test you would feel overwhelmed and think it was way too much but I think I am safe to say you all drive. Of course you don't think of all the things I wrote about at the same time, I just assumed you would understand this. Just like driving you learn to do things a piece at a time until it becomes muscle memory or second nature. Just as in Latin you learn of all the compression points and use of the body and floor to create swing and movement. Why do all the top Pros work on these body mechanics? Because knowing how to use the body correctly is the difference between beautiful movement and just movement. Louis Van Amstel and I were speaking together of this after his lecture and he was saying that lack of understanding of the body mechanics has become rampant but he refused to give in to what I call "instant gratification" Dancing when he teaches.
Youtube for newbie dancers is a lot like porn is for teenage boys. You're curious, it interests you, and then when you try it on your partner, sometimes it works, sometimes it's "You IDIOT- on WHAT PLANET did you think THAT was a good idea?" and then you hear the age old "But I saw it on..." or "but so-and-so did it, and..."
Moral of the story: It can be great for ... inspiring creativity?... motivation?... but not to be taken literally, exclusively, or without caution. Sometimes things need to be explained by a knowledgeable adult in the appropriate context.
What are you doing differently that would enable this different result to take place?
I am making sure I keep muscle strength to take the pressure of the joints. also trying to use the muscles in the right way. my legs have got more bowed and now and to unbow them Being conscious of the movement to make sure I am doing it properly until I dont have to think about it anymore
