Student

Myth

DANCE MYTH Exceptional children don’t need to do adult choreography to prove they’re awesome. ~Rhee Gold

Kids Just Want to Dance

Kids just want to dance. Their parents want more. ~Rhee Gold

Extended Family

WHY DANCE? Young dancers develop healthy bodies, gain a sense of balance by managing their commitments to  dance and academics; work with mentors who are focused on the students’ success; enjoy friendships that will last a lifetime; and feel a sense of belonging to an extended family of fellow dancers, teachers, and parents. – Rhee Gold

Steps or Technique

Dance teachers set an example in so many ways, and often in ways that have nothing to do with steps or technique. Be sure you are setting the right example both inside and outside of your classroom. – Rhee Gold

Exciting to See

It’s exciting to see the thrill on the face of a child who does her first plié or shuffle. It’s the moment the dance passion begins! – Rhee Gold

Plain and Simple

Each performance must exude passion or it’s not worth doing. It’s that plain and simple, as far as I’m concerned. – Rhee Gold

Take Responsibility

We must take responsibility to live up to the standards that we claim to live by. Let’s go out of our way to focus on giving our students concepts, choreography, and music appropriate for their age level.  – Rhee Gold

Smart and Courageous

No, they are not the same as kids in previous generations, but perhaps they are what they need to be for the times they are living in. They are smart and courageous, and they deserve our best. ~Rhee Gold

Go Out of Your Way

We must all take responsibility to live up to the standards that we claim to live by. Go out of your way to focus on giving your students concepts, choreography, and music appropriate for their age level. It’s time! ~Rhee Gold

I Root for Them

I have so many kids. They might not know they are “my kids,” but my heart does. I root for them for life! ~Penny Christensen
