Dancing with confidence is not about know all the right steps or perfect execution. It’s about Bouncing Back…experienced leads laugh off mistakes and enjoy yourself! The following is an excerpt of an essay written by John Sanderson published in Waltzing, A Manual for Dancing and Living, written by Stanford Professor, Richard Powers and his former student, Nick Enge.
“The following observation came while I was sick and sitting in the balcony. By now I have come to know who some of the most experienced dancers are. I had a good vantage point from the balcony to notice which Leads seemed to have the most headroom; these were the Leads for whom the dances were easy enough that they had some capacity to be playful with variations.
“In observing these Leads, I was struck by the fact that they made mistakes just as frequently as everyone else. They just bounced back from the more easily. Whereas less confident dancers would be thrown off for several measures by such a mistake, those I was observing were promptly right back in the swing of things, laughing it off with their partners. They seemed to have better internalized the idea we all strive for, to dance for the sheer enjoyment of it, with less concern for doing perfect footwork.”
