At this point of my journey in ballroom, I am realizing I lack mental focus to execute all the technical details my teacher tells me to do while I dance. I can do it for 2-3 figures and then unconsciously go back to old/incorrect habits/muscle memory. Quite often, I totally realize I am doing it wrong, but can't fix it quick enough and from that point I sort of give up completely. It's like my old muscle memory takes over my brain and refuses to do anything else. I am assuming this is a normal learning process and practice should make it better, but any tips on how to deal with this more efficiently would be appreciated. Besides actual practicing, I started doing mental exercises when I put a music on and go through the routine in my head (without moving), trying to think about all the details. I can't tell yet whether it's helping or not.
