Don’t watch the other girl’s feet. When she makes a mistake, you’ll follow her.
When she makes a mistake, the best thing to help her is to keep dancing. Then she can watch you to catch up.
When you make a mistake, keep dancing. You can catch up but once you stop, you’re done.
Keep your mind on your dance, not on what is happening later that night, or what happened that afternnoon. You need your mind to dance, as well as your feet.
Don’t think about the steps you can’t do well yet. Focus on how much better you were than when you started.
Do not be dismayed by the looks of the chubby girl in the mirror. Many people think she is cute just the way she is.
