I think about the dance and the music, remembering to smile and to look like I am enjoying myself. which is usually what I do  Grin

its where you really want to be.  I remember DSV commenting that time can become eternal on the dance floor - its a bit easier for the follow as she does not have to stay tuned to the floor craft but apparently with sufficient experience it happens to the lead too - when you watch teh top level dancers (and the juniors are as good at this as the pros I tihnk) they dance through each other with hardly a thuought - it all becomes automatic.  I suppose its something that is reached only after a lot of floort time - maybe social dancing is better to get that skill than competition since you never know what they are going to throw at you Wink

What I think about...... QPO's sig line...... "Dance is a delicate balance between perfection and beauty".

The most beautiful part of the dance is often found in between the steps... and in the movement within the stillness.

You actually think that while you are dancing?
I'm guessing that you aspire to feel something akin....

Almost always. I want to "think" that I am dancing technically well, and I want that to help me to "feel" and "look" beautiful.


And, don't you tell anyone that I like being beautiful; it'll totally ruin my image.......   Wink   Cheesy

i try to achieve this every time, not always successful, but when it does  happen boy it is a truly memorable moment which we always follow by a kiss comp or no comp!

Asked a couple that I am coaching for an upcoming comp what they thought about. Without hesitation, he said, "Like you told us last year... Who's going to be second?"

Who says they don't listen?  Wink

When I am out on the floor I use to think about what I had to do and now I go out to enjoy ourselves, I sing along to the music and have fun, we smile at each other. People says it shows and I think our dancing is better for that approach.

Oh, and eyes - try not to show the whites of my eyes  - not attractive  Roll Eyes
Shoulder line - check
music - not too much
whites of eyes??? Wish I had that problem.  Its not that they aren't white Undecided but that they are small so everyone thinks they are closed!

come to think of it, never heard that before...

After recent competition, I can honestly say I don't think about very much!!!!  Not sure if this is good or bad.

I think its exactly what you should be 'thinking' about.  If only I could make my mind go blank and just respond...
