Rhee Gold's Dance Life Inspirational Quotes

It's Not About the Tricks - Rhee Gold

It’s Not About The Tricks

Dance is not about the number of pirouettes or other “tricks” that you can do. Instead it’s about the opportunity to move an audience as you express the emotions of life through the art of dance. A simple walk or a port de bras coming from the soul is all it takes.

Appreciate the Critique

Listen to each correction given, whether it’s directed to you or another dancer. A correction is an honor; it shows you how much a teacher cares about your progress as a dancer. Always say thank you when a teacher or choreographer offers you contructive critisism. Nothing can stop those students who apply themselves in every class and appreciate their teachers’ knowledge and experience.

Perfect Life Experience - Rhee Gold

Perfect Life Experience

As adults (parents and teachers) we know that our blessings are not the awards that our children win at dance competitions (or any other activity). Our blessings are children with healthy bodies who have a passion for the art of dance. It leads them on an awesome journey that will make them smarter, better, braver, more determined . . . it keeps them protected and off the streets. It’s time to think of the award as gravy on an already perfect life experience.
