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. ~Rhee Gold

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. ~Rhee Gold

Positive Life Skills

DANCE! It helps the next generation to be more confident and appreciative of discipline, hard work, dedication and many other positive life skills. Let’s make it so the kids don’t have to worry about pleasing the adults in their lives by being the best. Let’s simply allow them to experience the joy that is dance. ~Rhee Gold

Applause - Rhee Gold


Long before the current generation started dancing for awards, generations of young dancers performed for something quite simple: applause. ~Rhee Gold

Move Without Fear

Dance full-out, stretch further, become more focused on your technique, and give your all to every teacher. ~Rhee Gold

Discipline and Dance

Discipline and dance go hand in hand; students who understand discipline are usually the most successful dancers. ~Rhee Gold
