As dancers we are accustomed to corrections, critiques and goals. But all too often we become so focused on what we need to improve that we forget to acknowledge what we have accomplished. While you may be striving for a triple turn, you still need to remember you have your double. While you may not get the solo you desire, you must allow yourself to recognize that you are in the select company.
This doesn’t mean you don’t embrace the areas that need improvement, but just that you don’t allow those to become your only focus. Dance is a process, not a single moment. Acknowledge your accomplishments and allow them to motivate you to pursue your goals.
