This last weekend I went to a day long workshop. The workshop itself was well put together and done by an instructor that I really respect. She is both a fantastic dancer and a clear teacher. However, I struggled with the content more than I am used to. Blues is a dance I’ve been doing long enough to really ingrain certain movements. The content of the workshops were not difficult. However, I had trouble with the content because it was close to, but not quite the movements I’ve really grooved in.
I think I was resisting learning the material. I stumbled into this workshop rather than having planned to take it. I was in the middle of writing a paper and preparing for a test. I was basically not in the right frame of mind. Everything was there for me, but I just couldn’t pick it up.
