Just a curious thought? How many of you dancers are engineers and how does it affect your dancing? Do you subbscribe to the theory that peoples personality molds their career , or the career molds the personality? I only ask this afer a semiprivate with another instructor, and that instructor whodid not know me personally at the time made the comment "must be an engineer" about me to my wife. Dead on hit. This was some time ago, but it just jumped into my brain today (sigh--another senior moment) Seems to me that engineers grasp the mechanics and physics, as well as the intricate patterns of dance, fairly quickly. However, the execution of the dance and the "instantaneus creativity" necessary for good leading is lacking. Sometimes, without practice, social graces are not the best also. Whaddya think?
