In the centre of your back.  If you dance this spot you improve your shape and retain ballance.   Its been quite a revalation...

And everything changes when you dance from there, doesn't it?

Gotta be careful, activating those chakras. Holy moly indeed.  Cool

It has always been there. I just need to find it and let it run free. And don't kid yourself: you can indeed return to your old self. But why would you want to?

An explanation for the unenlightened? How to make it work, and what it does?

It does so much including giving you that dreamy look where dancing is about your core, not your head.  It also gives you that top shape that we are so hungry for - where you look like you lean backwards and yet you maintain contact with the man.  Curiously, it does something similar for the man creating a space between you without you pulling away.

I can't make it work; took me a while to figure that out. I can only let it work. What it does is help me to send and receive energy, and provide my conscious mind a focus point for that energy. Oh, and remind me to dance my back. And to breathe. And to grow. And a bunch of other stuff.

In short, it's hard to explain. Undecided

Very hard to explain indeed.  Lioness, I've tried to think of it as getting away from the back of my T-shirt.  Everyone has their own interpretation of it.  It's very subtle, but it's very powerful.

It combines the Body Schools concepts of falling and skating into one. It keeps gravitational potential energy stocked up, ready to be expended in any direction.  The neatest thing seems to be that since the only source of energy is gravity, there is an endless source of it!  My coach showed me just how powerful gravity was.  Needless to say, you have to be at least *this* tall to ride the ride.  It was better than any roller coaster I had ever experienced.   

I wonder if it's the same spot we're talking about.  I discovered mine about a month ago.

Moving through the second center was just one of the very many AAAHHHH HHHAAAA!!! moments I have had in the last few years. I found that my female students grew by leaps and bounds when they started playing with this concept.

What it did for me was to let me truly dance from my centre and not both my centre AND my head (I bet thats a very common error).  The biggest effect I noticed was that by dancing with the magic spot as your main moving and balancing point, movement in your upper body (this is your body above the magic spot) became secondary.  Its actually wild since it requires an element of letting go - to make yourself actually much more stable.

Yup, this one evokes a lot of contradictions!
