To give feedback is difficult. And, good feedback is one of the best sources for successful learning.
Student-to-student feedback does not judge right or wrong. Nor do we deal with guilt. Poorly or badly given feedback can not only slow down but sometimes it shuts down a learning process all together...or leads into other scenes. Feedback should be never forced on a person who is not open for it.
Feedback is simply a message that informs you how your behavior is received by others. In movement and dance this means usually: "how does it feel?" In partner dance, we use feedback to improve the experience in the given relationship -- because, it can be completely different with someone else.
Here are helpful questions to explore with your partner as a door-way into feedback:
• What helps to achieve what we want ?
• Is it comfortable ?
• What do I miss ?
• Where am I surprised ?
• What do I need, to feel better ?
