I don't think its a good idea to get too wedded to a 'connection'  or maybe what I really mean is that you should be able to switch between different connections - chest, left hand, right hand virtual.  They are all connections and should be interrelational.

of course it should always breath, but I find if V maintains upper body consistency in arm height etc, things go really well and connection stays without having to be welded

Tensegrity.
cool
(before I look it up) is it a new or a previously owned word? Roll Eyes

 Very much a previously owned word. R. Buckminster Fuller. This bridge in Brisbane is v. cool: but this coffee table image may be more dance-friendly: You can see how minimalist, carefully structured, balanced and connected tension and freedom work together to hold up something seemingly invisible and weightless that's actually quite a bit of mass. Doing more with less, beautifully.

Kinda like dancing standard, ain't it?

Great post. It needs to be repeated.

What I've learned the hard way is that our bodies and brains are not hard wired to work from a lower potential (physical) to a higher potential (mental).  Our bodies are designed to use thought to create action.  

 .....work ONLY from a higher potential to a lower potential......

Great stuff, SG!!! Grin

This information is what creates great dancers or any successful person.
