It used to be difficult for me to watch dancers more advanced than myself. I internalized it as some kind of negative commentary on my own progress. Now that I’ve been dancing for a few years, I am beginning to feel a connection to the dance community. When I see the accomplishments of other dancers, I take pride in what they have achieved. Every mastered step is a credit to all dancers.
I have not yet learned the Peabody or the Quickstep. So, Friday night, when these dances began, I just watched. I took this video so others can enjoy. It made me revise an old cliché: Those Who Can’t Do, Watch.
