It’s the day after a long competition. Maybe your dancers did excellent, and maybe they didn’t? Either way, don’t make that what matters most post-competition. Ask your dancers, “What was your favorite piece from another school?” Share with them something you liked about someone else’s work. Ask them, “What do you feel that we need to work harder at?” I could go on with the questions, but you get my drift.
It takes total confidence in who you are and what you believe to “rave” about others accomplishments, and to know where you truly stand. Teach kids to appreciate the art, and others who love to do the same thing that they do, These are the life-lessons that will last long after the dancing is over.
