Spoiler Alert: ANYTIME! But there's more too it…

It’s summer, which for me as a mental performance consultant means busy season! Lots of dance studios and coaches want to focus on mental skills training in the summer, which is great. It’s our “off-season” or as I like to say, “improvement season”. So in today’s episode, I want to address a question I get a lot… when should I teach my dancers about mental skills?
