When you create enough space for yourself and other dancers, you allow yourself to learn and execute the choreography.
Sometimes the combinations get hard, try not to be to hard on yourself. Have fun!
Classes are over before you know it. There is no time to mark it. Dance Full-Out!
Remember its always better to see 2 clean pirouettes then 3 or 4 spins.
Stay on balls of your feet and use your plie. Take up space when you dance.
Constant remind yourself of your training. Dont throw it all out the door when you dance the combo. Your solid base to build on.
Musicality is everything. Let the music dictate your movement. I should enjoy watching you show me music in loud or soft eye piercing combos.
Pay attention to what your body is doing between counts 1 and 2!
Use "popping" to make your moves look more defined.
Always think of your posture. Neck lifted, sholders down and pulled up!
You have to know exactly what your dancing to. Every beat was put there for a reason. You have to train your ear to listen beyond the typical bass and snare hits.
Practice, practice, practice! This is your road to success.
You have to be completely open for movement. Leave your insecurities out the studio.
Having the mentality of you're already a certain "type" of dancer will block your growth. Whether its hip-hop, jazz or contemporary, it's all movement. Being well-rounded shows a great dancer.
