Just keep doing it, it's a long learning curve but it will improve - think in terms of years though, not months. Experience and flight time will give you the tools you need - the most useful tools are the ones you use when you go wrong, to get you out of the hole you've dug

I would position yourself and your music stand so actually you don't need to move your head or your eyes to see the conductor - you don't need to have a full view, but just be aware at all times of their beating (flailing?) arms

Also, one's capacity to keep up depends on how complex the music is. I'm okay with most music now to sight read, but if the music is particularly complex I still get lost

Foot tapping depends on the context. In folk music circles it's quite acceptable, even required. Not so much in more classical settings, and it can be quite off putting, especially if their sense of time keeping is different to the conductor's

The older I get, the better I was
