Ep. 167 – High Performance

Episode 167: Creating a High-Performance Environment in Rehearsals


Did you know there's a formula for creating a high-performance environment? Successful dancers know how to perform at their best, but that happens when you practice at your best. Being a successful dancer starts in rehearsal. It's about creating that high performance environment in every class, every cleaning rehearsal your dancers attend. Then, of course, it's up to them to do the work.

In today’s episode, I’ll be breaking down the three key ingredients to a high-performance environment that allows our dancers to achieve their best.  The magic is that all three of these principles work together to create the environment that allows your dancers to find their internal drive and put more effort in each and every class. Tune in to learn all about these three ingredients in a high-performance environment!

“We often know as teachers and longtime dancers that the end result or the skill you really want to achieve could be months or even years away. We get that. We need to help our dancers get that. So offer encouragement that highlights the process or the progress they're making rather than just end results.”
