Musical musings: Part II

This is just to say THANK YOU to all the musical leaders I have ever danced with! How have you ever done it?

I’m at home struggling to hear accents, new phrases, new sections and I feel paralysed. How can I even walk musically to this piece, let alone dance it, lead another person, avoid the traffic and dance with feeling??!! You (those musical leaders I’ve been lucky enough to encounter) astound me!

And for those dancers (leaders and followers) who are trying to learn to become more musical, keep persisting – even if you are an tone deaf and unmusical as me! It’s a struggle but I really think its going to pay off in the long run. :-)


  1. At least you know what you don't know. There is hope. Listen...listen...listen to the music. You have a heartbeat, so you have built-in rhythm. It takes time to know and understand another culture's music. You are motivated so it will happen.

  2. Thanks for your comment Jantango. Its nice to think I have an internal metronome! :-)
