Be a more successful dancer this year!
Now that 2014 is in full gear, what does that mean to you as a dancer?
Yes, you know all about resolutions and how most people break them by February each year. With this in mind, why not make goals instead of resolutions?
Here are a few tips to start your year off the right way and accomplish more with your dance career:
1. Define your future.
What do you really want to accomplish as a dancer?
It’s one thing to dream about being on Broadway, dancing in a film or television show or opening your own studio. It’s another thing to write down exactly what you want and actually take action on it. Your dreams may be big, but don’t let that stand in your way.
Figure out each step you need to take to get closer to your dream. Write down goals for this week, this month, this year, and the next five years.
Set timelines and try to finish each step by each deadline. You’ll be amazed at how your dreams will start to materialize!
2. Work hard.
Well, I hate to say it, but even if you think you’re a good dancer, there is always someone better out there. Being a professional dancer is a lot of work.
You need to take dance classes, practice and study your dance technique EVERY DAY. Just dancing around your house or with friends does not count.
Don’t kid yourself. If you really want to be a dancer, you’ve got a lot of hard work ahead of you. But if you reach your goals, it’s completely worth it!
3. Go for it!
With all the work involved in becoming a dancer, or opening your own studio, the process can be overwhelming. Plus, many naysayers will tell you that you can’t do it.
If you really want to have a career in dance, don’t let anyone or anything get in your way. Focus on your goals and stay positive!
Being a dancer is a lot of work, and you’ve got to expect many hours of frustration, physical and mental exhaustion, pain, and negativity from others. It’s a very difficult career, but if you really want to be part of it, all of your hard work will pay off!
Now, go dance and work to be one step closer to your dreams!
