The Upside of a Dancer’s Stress
Stress is something we all deal with, but today I want to share something with you that you might not have heard before… science has actually taught us that stress can be good for us! I know that sounds crazy but stick with me for this episode and I’ll tell you all about it. Also, this episode is a little different… I’m going to speak directly to the dancers. Now dance teachers and coaches out there this is will certainly still be helpful for you, but I’ve had some requests recently to cover this topic in a way you could simply share with your dancers. So, this is that episode! Listen in, and then feel free to share with your dancers. Here’s my take on the upside of a dancer's stress.
Here are some highlights:
- [1m 28s] What is stress?
- [3m 55s] Balancing demands and capabilities
- [5m 46s] The upside
- [9m 01s] The mindset shift you need
