Rhee Gold's Dance Life Inspirational Quotes

Just to Teach

Sometimes people come into your life just to teach you how to let go. – Unknown

By Awards Won

We cannot judge our success by awards won, but by the students who develop a passion for dance, regardless of the skill level they attain or the awards they may or may not achieve. – Rhee Gold

Winding Road

I have discovered that there are quick roads to success, and then there are long, winding roads. A winding road takes a little longer, but the ride is so much nicer. And it gives me time to appreciate the knowledge that I’ve followed through with my mission. – Rhee Gold


A talented 7-year-old can be 7 onstage; she can and should dance to relatable music with subject matter that the 7-year-old mind is mature enough to understand. It should not be the same music, subject matter, and costuming that you would use for a 17-year-old student. – Rhee Gold

Toot Your Horn

The true route to success in our small dance world: showing, through your actions, words, and deeds, your passion for what you do. If you do that, then you don’t need to toot your own horn. Instead, those who witness your passion will toot your horn for you! – Rhee Gold

Think About All

Think about ALL who you are, instead of all you are not. – Unknown

Exemplary Mentors

True success lies—in the children who, as adults, will fondly remember their once-a-week dance class and end-of-year recital. Let us be exemplary mentors, leaders, and teachers to every child who wants to dance. – Rhee Gold
