Ep. 148- Grit

Episode 148: Dancers – If you wan to reach the next level, develop GRIT


Have you heard of grit? Even if you haven’t, I bet you've seen it or you've felt it. Grit is the mental skill that could be the difference between getting that challenging turn section or staying stuck at your current level. This episode is for the dancers out there who have big dreams and goals in our dance industry but might need help to develop a little grit.

I’ll be sharing what grit is, why you need it, and how you can start practicing this mental skill today to see a real difference in your dance skills tomorrow. We’ll dive into the two parts of what it takes to become a gritty dancer and how to lean into creating a healthy passion for a dance for yourself as a dancer. If you have big goals and dreams in dance, tune in to learn how to develop your grit!

 “Grit is the combination of passion and persistence. That means in order to be a gritty dancer, you work to develop a healthy passion for dance and constantly challenge yourself to create a strong persistence.

Releve Membership

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.
