When I dance I do not

When I dance I do not necessarily think about every movement that i make. I find that it is when I start counting out steps and rhythm that I make the most mistakes. Over the weekend I experimented with this and it proved true. When you first learn a new number you use number and words and rhythms but once it is learned all that falls to the way side. It becomes routine and lose the robotic nature of the activity this maybe goes with piano playing and sports also. When you are first learning I believe that you do use the I-function but as one becomes "skilled" it no longer is present.
