Why Frequency is Important When Learning to #Dance #ballroom
But, dancing is complicated. It takes time to learn all those steps, hand movements, turns, dips, postures, and so forth. Anyone who has played a sport, a musical instrument, or learned any other relatively difficult skill knows that it takes time to reach a reasonable level of competence. That time is made shorter when reinforcement of learned skills occurs on a more frequent basis. That is why musicians practice their instrument every day, athletes practice their sports sometimes multiple times per day, and students perform homework full of repetition. The concept is the same for ballroom dancing: frequent practice makes for not just perfection, it makes for memory retention and shorter learning times.
