Have you ever wondered how you learn best? I posed the question on an earlier post, but here is a “learning style inventory” that will tell you more about how your brain processes information.
So why is this important? As a dancer, if you are aware of how you learn, you can use it to your advantage. Visual learners may want to opt for teachers who demonstrate movements often. Auditory learners will probably do a little better with instructors who give a lot of verbal direction. Tactile learners may also be what is called “kinesthetic” learners, and they will need an opportunity to practice the steps over and over again. Most people learn in more than one style, but if you can identify yours, you will be able to pick things up more quickly.
