Episode 145: To the Coach Who Will Settle for Nothing Less than Personal Perfection
Real talk: do you expect personal perfection? When you leave a competition, do you start thinking about the next event as soon as this one is over? Are you a little too self-critical and don't allow yourself any moment to just enjoy the present? If everything isn't perfect during a competition, do you beat yourself up over it? We often discuss perfectionism with our dancers, but are you a perfectionist yourself? Do you know how to handle your own deep-rooted perfectionism so that it doesn't cause you to burn out?
In today’s episode, we’ll be talking about you, the coach, the teacher, the mentor. It’s all about ensuring your own perfectionism isn't getting in the way of your joy of teaching. We’ll discuss the effects of negative self-talk, mindfulness while coaching, and how self-awareness of the things we say to ourselves can impact how we show up for our dancers.

The membership for dance coaches on the rise.
I work with dance coaches and teachers who love the sport and are great at what they do… but their dancers can’t take corrections, lack motivation, or have nothing positive to say about anything. Whether you are looking to reduce frustration at practice, help your dancers score higher at competition, or searching for a shoulder to cry on (I mean, coaching support), I’ll open your eyes to a new way to coach. Relevé Dance Coach Membership is there to replenish your personal mental and emotional energy and help you create dancers who are mentally tough, resilient, and motivated.
