Dance Is About More Than Just Dance
I recently came across this post on Facebook by Rhonda Malkin and I couldn't have said it any better myself - so I won't!
To me, being a dance educator means more than just dance. It means helping children unlock their true potential, no matter what that is. It means teaching them dance skills AND life skills. It means being someone they can talk to when they feel like they have no one else. It means teaching them to love and care for their bodies just as they are. It means encouraging them to fail, to learn from their mistakes, and to strive to do better next time. It's how they learn; it's progress not perfection.
Everyday I strive to create a positive experience for my dancers. To inspire them and to encourage them to never stop doing what they love. 💛
