Your response to Bob is very interesting and useful. Would you elaborate on the following points, also addressing my comments?
(2) they have trouble identifying which is the strongest beat, I.e. the 1 beat. It is recognized that in International Rumba the most prominent beat is the 4, and the 4 should be sometimes accented in the dance. So there is a difference between strong and prominent?
- the idea being that you distract your conscious brain enough to see how automatic your response is to the pulse and the rhythms that you superimpose upon it. This sounds like high psychiatry. Would you elaborate for the dilettantes?
There are some dance-teachers who claim that the students should not use 1,2,3,4 etc. (numbers) when counting. They say that it is better to use sounds such as chica, bum etc. in Latin. I think that is what you call the rhythms that you superimpose upon it. Is that right?
