Dancing, like most things, are easily overthought by my students. One in particular I taught yesterday is notorious for interfering with her natural body movement because she tenses up when her brain can't keep up - and back-leads when it can. So I set a fast pace and didn't let up, waiting for her mind to let go and let her body move. Pretty quickly, she started to relax and move, and even respond well to a few steps she hadn't been taught yet! She had an excellent class, felt she learned a good deal (usually she's harder on herself).
