I have not been dancing for a long time yet, but I have been trying to go really fast. I want to learn more and more. I always try to find a new advanced move. I am in more lessons than ever before and I am training on my own all the time. However, it means that I do not have the time and energy to repeat the basics. It has been hurting me. My dancing is neither good nor clean. My basics have been getting rusty! It doesn’t help that basics are not valued as highly here, in Germany, as in Korea.
Today, we did two hours straight just doing popping basics. In the beginning, I thought it would be really easy. However, really quickly I noticed how much I suck at the basics. It ended up being really fun and it rekindled my love for doing basics. It is so important and I just cannot become a good dancer without drilling the basics all the time – PERIOD.
