Panel Discussion with Exceptional Coaches (Part 1)
Last summer, I hosted an online conference called the Confident Dancer Summit, where 20 different dance educators came together to teach a short course on different aspects of confidence. It was a great weekend and I decided to share one of those inspiring conversations with you today. One of the summit speakers was Mary Wendt, an incredible woman I’ve had the pleasure of working with a few times. She’s the Education director for the USASF (or US All-Star Federation). For her class at the summit, she paired up with another USASF director Kinshasa Garret and they brought together other successful coaches and had a panel discussion about increasing dancers' confidence. I love how this turned out and am excited to share it with you. I’m going to break it up into two parts, so here is part one of the Confident Dancer Summit Panel discussion with Mary Wendt and Kinshasa Garret.
Here are some highlights:
- [1m 15s] Daney Soto Barreto – Dance Mania All-Star Orlando, FL
- [10m 19s] TJ Maple – Stephen F. Austin University
- [19m 45s] Mary Kate Statz – Current college athlete and youth coach
