Just came across this social dancing blog article by Dado Ibrakovic. The author talks about really vital things of a dancer's life! For example, what do you think of the point about mistakes being an important part of our dancing? ⠀

10 mistakes to avoid on the dance floor (short version)
⠀
🔴 1. Fear of making mistakes while dancing
⠀
 Social dance is built on the basis that doesn’t have to be perfect. It’s not a question of IF you make mistakes, but rather HOW you deal with them.
⠀
🔴 2. Not paying enough attention
⠀
Without paying attention to our partner, the whole world will fall apart.
⠀
🔴 3.  Hygiene and a well-groomed appearance
⠀
I mean the little things: being showered, wearing clean clothes, avoiding bad breath, not eating „problematic“ things before dancing, using deodorant, maybe even perfume. Just normal things.
⠀
🔴 4.  Neglecting the structure
⠀
We all need a little relaxation time in each dance, and dancing the basic elements gives us just that. That’s essential for harmonious dancing together. ⠀
⠀
🔴 5.  Taking it too seriously
⠀
I take dancing and everything about it, very seriously… apart from the time I’m actually dancing. 😀 Come on, just relax a bit and enjoy the time you spend dancing. ⠀
⠀
🔴 6.  Beginning to dance too quickly
⠀
The beginning of a social dance is where so much potential for harmony lies. You should ALWAYS give yourself a few more moments than you’d think, to define the rythm of the music.
⠀
🔴 7.  Not going dancing enough
⠀
The less time you spend dancing, the less good you’re going to be at it, and the less fun you’ll have with it.
⠀
🔴 8.  Stop learning
⠀
Aside from the obvious fact that you’ll dance better, learning new things broadens our horizons and our personality benefits from it too. ⠀
⠀
🔴 9.  Taking things too personally
⠀
It’s all about us taking honest and constructive feedback too personally and starting to doubt ourselves. Mistake! Mistakes show us our potential for improvement!
⠀
🔴 10.  Not learning from mistakes

Many dancers make mistakes while dancing. But the really good dancers try to not repeat them. At least not in the same dance.
