It’s Not True

Don’t look at other teachers or studio owners and believe that you would be happy if you had what they have. It’s not true! ~Rhee Gold

Endless Possibilities

When I am forced to work in black and white I find my possibilities limited. If I allow myself to work in gray (or maybe it is full color), I find that the possibilities are endless. ~Rhee Gold

Stick to It

You have to love dancing to stick to it. It gives you nothing back, no manuscripts to store away, no paintings to show on walls and maybe hang in museums, no poems to be printed and sold, nothing but that single fleeting moment when you feel alive.~Merce Cunningham

Sell Yourself

Being real is the best way to sell yourself . . .~Rhee Gold

Passion for All

I have always believed that it’s possible to instill a passion for the art of dance in every student, regardless of the level of dance achieved. ~Rhee Gold

Skeptics Told Me

Skeptics told me that dance teachers and school owners were too competitive to share their knowledge. My instincts told me that wasn’t true. 20 years later, the truth is dance people embrace the chance to communicate and to celebrate their common bond.~Rhee Gold

Giving Back

Success is not easy and I think everyone should know that hard work and perseverance and being open to giving back are so much more powerful than stepping all over people to get to the top. ~Misty Copeland

I Choose

Hmmmmm . . . Do I CHOOSE to make it an awesome day or do I CHOOSE to make it a grumpy, why me day? How cool is it that I have a CHOICE! ~Rhee Gold

You Need to Be

Have No Fear That curve in the road just might be the best thing that could have happened to you. Confidently dance down the unexpected path to where you need to be, it’s probably a very “cool” place.~Rhee Gold

Almost Anything

If we wholeheartedly believe in what we want to accomplish and are willing to dedicate the time and energy needed to see it through, I believe that all of us can accomplish almost anything we desire. ~Rhee Gold
