Becoming a better dancer is about much more than just the physical practice. Self-reflection is a great tool you can use to learn about where you are at in your own personal dance journey, and start planning what you would like to be better with.
Bringing regular reflexivity into my dance practice, especially at home, is something I find to be essential for a healthy mind and body relationship. I do find it difficult to be consistent with my dance reflections, so I recently made this list of questions that I can focus on specifically for after dance practice sessions.
If you have a hard time with this like I do, consider joining me in asking yourself these questions after dance practice (you can do this in your journal, on a blog, or even just in your own head as a meditation practice):
- What is going well for me in my practice?
- What could I improve on next time?
- What was my favorite part of today’s practice?
- How was my body feeling today?
There are, of course, much deeper reflection questions and topics I would like to explore as a part of my total dance practice. I will share those questions and reflection activities here with you each week, so we can practice our consistency together! Look for more reflection prompts every TUESDAY in May here on Welcome To The Dance!
