Counting Your Way to Success
Yesterday, an auditioning guest-blogger asked “how do you come up with these ideas every day?” Most days it’s easy, others challenging, and some days I’ve got nothing. Today is one of those days. That’s why I’m so thankful to have another fun guest post from Melissa Spinella, Services Marketing Manager at Kronos.
In another life, I would have been a teacher. Don’t get me wrong, I love my job and have the #bestbossever, but there’s nothing better than seeing the joy in someone’s face when they finally “get” what you’re teaching them.
A couple years ago, I became a Zumba® instructor and discovered that everyone learns in different ways and on their own timetable. Some people like the challenge of just keeping up with you as you do a new routine, while others need some hand-holding and step breakdown so they don’t feel overwhelmed and just quit. There are people who thrive in a group setting (like me!), yet there are others who don’t want anyone watching them. For me, as a former dancer, counting music comes naturally – I couldn’t learn or teach a routine without actively counting out the steps aloud or in my head. My husband is the complete opposite – he swears he can’t count music to save his life, but he can “just listen to the music and let it move him.” While he may not be actively counting, in essence, his body is doing it for him, whether he wants to admit it or not. Counting music, whether consciously or unconsciously, is the basis from which any dance or routine must start, it’s the starting point to learning all the music has to offer.
