What I realised from teaching dancing
In preparing for it, I realised how much teaching dance lessons has helped. (FYI, I spend most my free time swing dancing).
This is because when teaching a room of people how to pull of a move, you can instantly tell when you've failed to get the idea across. Unlike a talk which is a sea of staring faces, you get to watch a horde of previously enthusiastic dancers turn into a confused mess.

Being confronted with the reality of my failure was pretty demoralising at first, but it has helped me quickly become a better and better teacher.
Hooray! A successful talk!
Thankfully, this learning translated into a successful talk. Attendees even complimented me on the clarity and enthusiasm for the subject matter
It was highly satisfying seeing people's eyes light up, so I guess I'll keep on teaching for years to come.
