Not me.  Which is odd since thats my profession - I have to understand process/mechanics to the n'th degree to move my work forward.  However, for dancing I need to do it to learn it.  I love to analyze how I do it because that does help me move forward with the next learning but its the action that trains me.

Makes sense Elise.  Babies learn to walk and run without any need for knowing how.

(snip...)   Its far more important for us ladies to get how to feel where the man is and respond.  Once you know the very basics of foot action they really take care of themselves if you respond and always seek your ballance points.

I find that it's more true for ballroom, but less so for latin.
Thats interesting (I'm rather latin deprived) so what do you rate as most important for latin? 

Sorry this is a bit late...

I was mostly responding to the things 'take care of themselves' part.

I find that with Latin you have a bit more freedom in how you dance your body, mainly because of the looser hold. So even if I know my basics, and can feel where my partner is, I still have to make a conscious decision on how to respond to the lead.

With ballroom, because of the close hold, I don't feel I have as many options in how I react to the lead. So things tend to fall into place without me having to think much.
