Do you take care of yourself as well as you care for your dancers?
If you’re a part of this community, I am pretty confident you are a lifelong learner and someone who cares about being the best version of yourself.

What about a purely personal mission of YOUR growth? Today let’s focus on you the teacher and coach and not your dancers, here are 5 simple ideas to help you focus on your own growth.
