The Truth about well rounded dancers...

I follow Heather Sara via her blog, and today she posted an interesting article that I'm re-posting here.

Heather's Original Blog

Original Dance Article

The Three things you need to be well rounded according to said article:

Exposure = Watching a variety of dancers, styles, and performances; Making contact with other students and professionals; Reading about dance or dance artists

Experience = Getting a taste of alternative ways of moving and patterning dance; Learning a dance; Participating in a performance; Working with master teachers or choreographers;

Training = Engaging in a course of study that prepares a dancer for the physical, cognitive, and mental requirements of codified dance forms/techniques; specialized practice and instruction over a period of time

What are you lacking or what do you have to much of in your dancing life?

What I believe I need currently:
-A more structured and diligent personal practice (File under Training)
-Learning different ways of movement, not just limited to dance, rock climbing and hooping are next on my to do list (File under Experience)
-Less youtube (File under Exposure)
