So as today is international dance day I wanted to share some photos with you from my dancing years. Pretty cringe for me (and others in the pics) but I thought I would share them anyway.
I can honestly say that these were some of the best years of my life and the best memories were created that we still laugh about today. I think being involved in dance from such a young age gave me the drive to succeed, confidence and the ability to make a fool out of myself in front of people.
I have met some of my best friends through dance and would highly recommend putting your child into a dance school. Some people may feel like it is a lot of pressure for young kids to be involved in dance schools but it didn’t do me or any one I know any harm. If anything it teaches you the value of hardwork, determination, teamwork, exercise, travel, supporting and motivating one another and respect for your teachers. As much as I may have huffed and puffed when I was pushed and told to practice a dance 100 times over it always proved to be the best thing for me and was so delighted to come home with a trophy at the end of a weekend.
I completed CSN Diploma in Dance a few years back and this was also an amazing experience. I tried this as I thought I would love to be a professional dancer. Through this course I was able to experience the strenuous work professional dancers go through every day. While I had the most amazing time doing the course I decided a career in the area was not for me. But I would highly recommend anyone wanting to try this to go for it. If you don’t like it and it isn’t for you then at least you gave it a shot.
I have tried all different types of dance, jobs and courses and the more I do the more I know what I want. So my advice would be try everything once. You can’t knock it till you try it 🙂
