I just read a great article about a Ballroom Dancer who applies principles, she has learned from ballroom dancing, to her professional work as a naturopathic doctor.
"Ballroom dance has gotten under my skin and I cannot get enough of it. As a naturopathic doctor, approaching 30 years in the field, I think about how social ballroom dance makes me a better doctor." -Amy Rothenberg, ND
The 7 concepts that she highlights, unique to ballroom dance, are:
2. Finding, strengthening and keeping access to one's center
3. Timing and rhythm
4. Connection/the dynamic of lead and follow
5. Broadening confidence
7. The idea of a complete experience
This is a great read and wonderful example of how one of our many life roles positively influences other aspects of our life. This is a must read!!
