It is important to remember that no matter how wonderful your dance instructors may be, you will only reach your full potential if you, too, are fully engaged in every rehearsal, completely focused, and set personal goals to help keep your mind and body on the right track towards what you want to achieve.
Many times as dance students, we take class every week and expect improvement from attendance and participation alone. Be aware that in order to improve, we must not only be present in our dance classes, but we must watch and listen to our instructors directions, constructive criticisms, and demonstrations, as well as work hard, stay focused, ask questions, and most importantly, PRACTICE!!
