I hope you had a good fortnight since the last update.
In this update, I want to talk about how you can keep your responsiveness and improvisational skills.
When you don't get a chance to dance for a while, you can lose these abilities.
Luckily, this is fairly easy to fix with mental rehearsal.
Try this around once a day:
1) If you are a follow, then recall the different leads you have experienced. Then imagine what you would do in response. Then try to quickly recall another and another. That will help improve your responsiveness
2) If you are a lead, then think of the figures you know. Imagine performing one and the follow responding. Then think of another one to do and another. This will maintain your ability to improvise.
I hope this helps. Shoot me a message if you have any questions or concerns about how your dance ability might have slipped recently.
Until next time, I hope things are well for you
