Thank you for this great article. It is definitively something that can be difficult to "really" understand and feel but so important as it is what transforms your skills into art! It is the same with every art forms, but street dance is definitively a great example. Many approach dance as a sport and forget it is an art form before anything else. Technique is very important as it will help you achieve your vision, but without a vision your art will never transcend. As you said, Soul is a personal thing and technique isn't what give us Soul, it's our Soul that gives technique life and so we cannot learn Soul from someone else, but a good teacher will give you tools to help you in your journey, never set limits.
