Dance Teacher

Young People

Dance Teacher Friends, Remember that it isn’t always about the movement or steps that you teach that matter most. It’s more about being a positive role model who mentors, leads and teaches young people to be the best that they can be in dance and in life. ~Rhee Gold

You Are You

Don’t look at other teachers or studio owners and believe that you would be happy if you had what they have. It’s not true! Be happy because you are you. ~Rhee Gold

Your Commitment

No worries, someone may attempt to duplicate your concept, but they can’t duplicate your personality or your commitment. Stay focused on what you must do. ~Rhee Gold

Right Now

Dream BIG, for sure. But, never forget how cool it is to be where you are right now. Enjoy the journey. ~Rhee Gold

Every Minute

Time is a gift, what we do with it is our choice. Being part of the gossip about the teacher or school up the street isn’t helping us progress. Every minute, hour, or day focused on them is a minute, hour, or day that we are not dedicated to our own success. ~Rhee Gold

Some Kids

Some kids are at the dance studio all day. Some kids are hanging out all day. Some parents spend hours driving their kids to everything dance. Some parents spend hours driving around looking for their kids. Some parents spend their hard-earned money on dance classes, shoes, costumes, etc. for their children. Some parents are spending their hard-earned money on lawyers for their children. Sometimes dance seems overwhelming, but how cool it is that dance parents know their children have a passion for dance! ~Rhee Gold

Just Like You

That tiny dancer dreams that she will grow up to be just like you someday. How cool is that?! ~Rhee Gold

Learning and Evolving

We will always be mediocre if we don’t expose ourselves to others who may be better or different than we are. Growing, learning, and evolving is what the dance life is all about. ~Rhee Gold

Don’t Make Exceptions

When a mom or a student challenges your policies, don’t make exceptions even if it means that you lose the student. You have created a philosophy for how you want to run your school. You set up policies that help you and everyone else live up to the philosophy. Believe in who you are and what you want to accomplish. In the long run the respect that you gain and the example you set will bring you more students. ~Rhee Gold

Pure Joy

The music, the movement, the pure joy radiating from the soul; that is dance. ~Rhee Gold
