DANCE TEACHERS: THE TIME IS NOW TO TAKE ACTION!

DANCE TEACHERS: THE TIME IS NOW TO TAKE ACTION!

"Why stop dreaming when you wake up?" Walt Disney

What a terrific question by the man that turned his dreams constantly into reality. I am sure he had many moment of doubt. But he never let that stop him for a minute. He knew if he had a dream and then worked out a plan and then had the courage to take action, he could do it! I recently watched a television show on the life of Walt Disney and I was just so inspired with his life work. I remember growing up and watching the Wonderful World of Disney on Sunday nights. I can remember the excitement when my parents took my sister, my brother and me to Disneyland in California and then to Disney World in Florida. All the movies, television shows and theme parks were the dreams of this one man. A man who developed a plan and then put it into ACTION!

“WALK THE WALK, DANCE THE DANCE….”

“WALK THE WALK, DANCE THE DANCE….”

As dance teachers who spend countless hours with our students in the studio week after week and year after year, it’s sometimes easy for the lines of the relationship to blur in terms of dance teacher to student vs. friend to friend. In a sense you do become part of a second “studio-family” and role model whom they look up to. While building a relationship with students who feel comfortable enough to trust you, communicate and share with you is wonderful, remembering who the mentor is, who’s in charge and setting good examples all around should be your main priority.
