Oh yes, this is definitely necessary for any kind of development I think.  In dance, it's such a personal thing that I think the skill has to be a little more developed than usual.  I'm amazed at the usually confident and resilient folks that crumble in a dance lesson.

yes because it is about control, and they loose it when they are in a lesson (or they feel they do), but I find it empowering that I don't know everything and that with every lesson I learn something more that  is bringing me along my journey!

You have to have self confidence - else you can not dance - and you have to have humilty - else you can not learn...

AHHH this answer is easy--GOLF. It requires hips and shoulders.  A bucket of balls at the range is $5.00. Doesn't really matter where the ball goes.

orchestra, band, choir, marching band, etc.

Nothing to do with the dancing itself ( I think music training can be a two edged sword.) Very,very good preparation for performing in front of an audience under pressure.
