Balance – More than just standing on 1 foot

“Oh! My balance is sooo bad!”

“I am doing great when I am practicing but I am still struggling with balance when I dance”

“I get so frustrated when pushed and pulled off balance just by people who can’t lead and just copy sequences off youtube”

“Close embrace feels so unnatural. I feel I am continuously falling over”

Any of that sound familiar?

I am guessing you are nodding “Yes” here…haha

Balance is a rather common problem, even if your balance is good, I am sure you have danced with people who are very wobbly or you have been in classes doing those balance drills and have seen people huffing and puffing through them…

The problem is rarely physical. It is more about getting rid of common balance lies, and embodying very helpful rules.

Some common balance lies:

*It is something you have to hold
*You are either balanced over all or not
*Our partners are responsible for our balance
*To get better balance you have to do balance exercises

Some decapitating cues:

*Pull your bellybutton in
*Squeeze the glutes
*Stretch up through the crown of the head

Oh dear I feel I am getting a workout just by writing this…haha

THERE IS A BETTER WAY

Here are a few ideas on how to get out of your head, where a bunch of rules and taboos are not allowing you to move and express yourself, and how to get in charge of your body, your axis and your balance.
