Rhee Gold's Dance Life Inspirational Quotes
No matter what your opinion is, dance competition is growing every year. It’s here to stay, and if it is used the right way it can be very motivating for teachers and students alike. I encourage you to participate with the understanding that competition is merely one aspect of dance training.

Dance is one of the first art forms known to humankind. As teachers we are the conservators who preserve the history, and we have the chance to add our knowledge to take the art form to new heights.
