And yes, lower your expectations for yourself, to have realistic expectations. In this world of performance, this suggestion is not a common thought. I have often seen students in my classes who put a lot of pressure on themselves. They probably thought they weren’t normal if they didn’t get it right the first time. Learning to master your body in dance is a long process.

In my opinion, you have to try to lower the pressure and accept the reality.
If you are willing to lower your expectations, you will likely experience more success. Lowering your expectations doesn’t mean working less hard, but rather dropping your illusions and taking a good bath in a reality that doesn’t meet any expectations… It’s just there waiting for you… Waiting for you to embrace her with both arms without judging or putting pressure on yourself…

It’s usually at this precise moment that the pleasure starts… the simple pleasure of dancing!
