They say March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. Well we are trying to hold onto some of those lion attributes this March at the dance studio! As our Competition Team makes their debut on the competition stage, our exam students are finalized into the assessment and our recital classes are pushing through to finish up recital choreography and start the cleaning process. It is certainly a time to inspire our students to be bright and hold. This is why we thought CONFIDENCE would be a great theme for the month of March!
Our monthly intentions are a way to shine a spotlight on the life lessons that dance provides. From creating special bonds between dancers and families, to gratefulness and a growth mindset – it’s our aim to highlight these life lessons to our dancers and dance families. After all, dance is not just about learning how to move your feet, but how to let your heart lead!
What does CONFIDENCE mean to FDC?
March is a busy month at the dance studio and can be pretty demanding of our dancers. It’s the time of year when all of our three very-demanding programs start to move into the final push for the season. Whether you are a competitive, exam or recital student – there are goals to be met and dreams to achieve! This month we hope to inspire our dancers with confidence so that their goals can be met!
For us at FDC, CONFIDENCE is not just about appearance, it’s much more about a state of mind! For dancers the word “can’t” gets in the way much too often. Whether it’s a recital student saying they can’t go on stage and perform because of nerves or a competitive student saying they can’t learn a new movement, our mindset can hold us back. At FDC it is important for us to inspire our students so that they CAN be successful in life and in dance.
Inspiring confidence and displaying confidence are both core values near and dear to our dance studio’s heart. Because, of course, it’s important that you can talk the talk AND walk the walk!
What’s the Plan for CONFIDENCE?
Over the course of the month we will host a series of activities and events for all of our dancers inside and out of the studio.
- Our Wingman4Dance activity is nicely linked into this month’s intention. Our dancers will explore different emotions in class and learn about how these emotions affect our physical bodies and emotional states.
- In class students will be discussing their goals and hopes for their upcoming performances. Whether for competition, exam or recital we want to know and help our dancers succeed at what matters most to them!
- Our teachers will be on a special lookout for CONFIDENT moments over the next weeks to celebrate with a WOW card or special treat!
