According to the results of research in 95% of cases, natural talent does not determine who will become an expert in something.
What follows from this? In order to learn how to dance well, you need a lot of practice. Suppose 2 people decide to dance. (Read the article “How to get the most out of dance lessons?”) One of them was good, he had innate abilities, and the second was worse, but he was very diligent and set himself the task of learning to dance well. First picked it up immediately, but went to workout regularly. He missed the training, and then came and quickly memorized the material that was shown. The second went regularly, it was given more difficult, but he worked on himself, regularly, practiced at home independently. Continue reading
People who learn to dance naturally want to get as much out of their dance lessons as possible, but often do not clearly understand how to do it. In fact, the success of any student depends mainly on how he approaches his studies and uses the material. The fastest, most complete and effective progress will be the result of only a logical and structured approach to learning.
