For this Friday I stole a teaching technique from my aunt who is an art teacher. She believes that both sides of the brain require attention in order for someone to truly become an artist. The two sides typically work like confronting personas in a multiple personality situation. There are certain techniques one can employ to let both sides work as one. It is my believe that dancing is an art form therefore if you dance you are an artist and should be taught as one!
The technical half of your brain evaluates what you are doing and extrapolates the data. Right and wrong, black and white, good and bad all happen on this side of your brain.
The artistic side of your brain sees everything's value in the form of energy. Life is captured as a series of very vivid 3 diminutional pictures. This side knows where to go and how to get there entirely by feel. There is no timeline, no right, and no wrong just energy coming and going.
Since you can't teach the technical side of an art form to the artistic side of the brain nor can you force the number crunching side to be creative how do we get the information into our bodies using both sides? Both sides of our brains make up who we are and so both sides must be feed in order to process information optimally.
We crunch numbers all day every day making the analytical side of our brain comfortable being dominant. While we are learning an art form this becomes a problem because that is the side of the brain where right and wrong live. How can we step outside the box if we have a little voice in our head yelling "WRONG!!!!" at every missed step? Our first mission is to strengthen the artistic side so that we can traverse from interpretation to evaluation safely and have enough strength left to get back to interpretation.
