The most valuable things in life can only be learned by doing them a lot. You can read every book on Ghandi and still not be a leader. You can read cookbooks cover to cover and still not be able to serve up a gourmet meal. You can watch every belly dance video on youtube and still not be able to shimmy! If you want to get better at something there’s no magic ingredient - it’s about drilling the basics again and again until it becomes automatic.
Maybe you’ve been coming to class regularly but you feel frustrated that after practising for hours you’re not getting better or getting the results you want? Then it’s time to think about whether you’re practising in the right way!
“Champions are brilliant at the basics” - American basketball player John Wooden

You can find more ideas and tips on how to practise here.
On 22nd October we'll begin KP 6 studying various Middle Eastern and North African folkloric dances. Join us on a colourful journey stopping off in Tunisia, Egypt and the Gulf states. We’ve included some more tips in our newsletter on how you can learn a choreography more easily and you’ll also find a special offer (free private lesson) for all new Abo holders in KP6, which might just help you find the best way to practise with intention and not just effort!
