The dance involves careful movement, balance, and control and requires concentrated effort and practice. [S]he is learning to focus [her] mind on the task at hand and to bend [her] will so that [s]he can learn a new and difficult skill. [S]he must forget about other things while [s]he practices, and [s]he must devote much time to the task so it will become second nature to [her].--Alexandra Genetti (with slight adaptations for gender and rank)
