As you can see, it is impossible to avoid the effect of time without practice, but we can do
something to try to recover and rediscover our dancing as fast as possible.
There was in fact a pianist (don’t remember the actual name, but I know he was a pianist) that said:
“If I don’t practice 1 day, I notice it.
If I don’t practice 2 days, my teacher notices it.
If I don’t practice 3 days, the public notices.”
And the problem isn’t only that you didn’t “keep” your dancing, you have a total disconnection from what you are gonna need quite a time to recover.
