Some dances are their own beasts. They stay somehow just barely out of reach or shift so as to make you lose the grasp of one phrase just as you master some other. This is especially true if they push against tempo or cycle rather than repeat. Sometimes even a dance that you yourself have created can elude you in its particulars of timing and execution.
And sometimes you find it. Sometimes you simply set yourself comfortably into the movement, listen, wait, and find the timing.
