Ep. 153 – How I Plan

Episode 153: How I Plan a Dance Team Season


In the dance world, summer isn’t just the time for intensives and summer camps, it’s also a time for a whole lot of planning. If you're someone like me who loves a good planner, someone who color codes everything, and someone who enjoys mapping out the next year to come, I'm excited to share my planning process with you! If you don’t consider yourself a planner, I encourage you to listen in and consider a new perspective: you can be a planner if you want to.

In this episode, we’ll break down my four-step planning process of reviewing the year ahead, choosing what to focus on, digging into your calendar, and dialing into Q1 of the upcoming year. If you want to see some growth in your dancers this next year, tune into this episode to hear all about my four-step planning process!

“And if you are not a planner, I encourage you to stick around because if you're not a planner, consider this: just like we give ourselves labels in dance that are not helpful, when our dancers say things like, “I'm not a turner,” or “I can't do left,” saying to yourself, “I'm not a planner,” isn't helping you either. It may not come as naturally as it does for others, just like some dancers are more flexible and some dancers have an easier time learning to turn and find their balance, that doesn't mean you can't do it too. You can be a planner if you want to.”

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.
