Dance Tip
Balance, Stability, Equilibrium.

Balance is not a state of lock-down where you tense every muscle to keep from falling. Balance is a delicate equilibrium. The body is constantly falling and recovering. The better your balance, the more quickly you recover from falling. Eventually, the amount of falling you do is nearly imperceptible. You sense the falling and it flows into your next move. Falling becomes purposeful (if not premeditated). You won't realize how poor your balance was until you get good at it. And when you're good, it's hard to imagine what better feels like.
Never, ever stop working on balance!
