This time we watched a movie with the IBA team called Shall We Dance. Apparently it's the Japanese version of a much less clean american video. While the protagonist was learning competitive ballroom from the romantic interest, she said something to the effect of 'Everyone is watching the first step. The woman will decide how much she will have to lead from the first step. (Don't try to deny it, ladies.... >.>) The judges attention is caught because of the first step. And the judges attention is pretty much everything.'
It's interesting that from the very start, confidence is a critical ingredient.
Last year at the same program, we were taught that the people who learn the most quickly are the ones who are not afraid to fail, who don't care about looking stupid. Think about that til next time!
