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.
Yes agreed.
I often think of the connection and movement as a dance between two people becoming on.
I often have appreciated those who took the time to offer me something to think about along with something to do.
