Re: Imitation, Improvisation, Self-Expression
We explain the above learning/internalization process at our place, giving it a Native American spin, as:
First, learn the steps of the dance.
Next, feel the rhythm of the other dancers.
Now, dance the dance.
Finally, make it rain.
It does help a very great deal to have someone who not only silently demonstrates, but verbally and demonstratively breaks down what is happening in the moving structure of the 2, 3 bodies.
