Advice for Dancers, From Dancers

Anytime we start something new, whether it’s a new fitness routine, a new recipe, or a new class, we are often hesitant. Anxious. Scared. Scared of failure. Scared of the unknown. Scared simply to start! As our little dancers begin their new year of dance, I would assume they have similar fears. Fears of fitting in, of succeeding, of liking it.
