Competition

Number of Souls

Great dance is not about the awards won. Great dance is when an audience is moved. If you happen to win an award along the way; well good for you. BUT, true success is based on the number of souls you touch with your passion for the art of dance. ~Rhee Gold

Stay Focused

Figure out what it is that YOU want, stay focused and forget about what others are up to. ~Rhee Gold

No Time

There is no time for gossip if you are truly focused on what you want or need to accomplish. ~Rhee Gold

Applause - Rhee Gold

Applause

Long before the current generation started dancing for awards, generations of young dancers performed for something quite simple: applause. ~Rhee Gold

Hold on Tight

Not everyone who dances through our classrooms or schools will agree with why or how we do things. And that’s OK; as long as we have confidence to know that we can’t change or make exceptions simply because someone may disagree. Hold on tight to what you know is right. ~Rhee Gold

Competition is a Part of What We Do

Let us not forget that competition is a part of what we do, but not all we do. In most schools it is the preschool and recreational dancers who are our financial backbone. For them learning their first “shuffle” or “pas de bourrée” is happiness. As teachers we need to know that dance brings joy to all who experience it, not just the best ones. ~Rhee Gold
