3. Musicality

Latin dancing needs music

What would dancing be without music? A big evaluation criterion and our biggest motor is the music. We need to be able to understand and hear them to some degree. Rhythms are our inspiration, but also the melodies, which are always changing, can completely manipulate our performance if we let it.


So what does it mean when you hear: You must be more musical!? As is so often the case, there are many ways to reach your goal. 

Interpreting, hearing, feeling, counting, understanding the music... what is important? Even better: what do I need most for myself to make it work, with the music?


My main approach is the music itself, which excites us, makes us happy, powerful and much more. If you dissect these works of art, then we lose the true meaning of the music. It's like squeezing the juice from an orange, only the taste is gone all of a sudden.


All analyzes are interesting for understanding, but in my experience not always the better way for your own processing.

Nevertheless, there are different types of people who can sometimes work things out analytically more easily.


As always, before booking or purchasing a music package, it is necessary to meet, introduce yourself and discuss what is appropriate for each individual.
