2. Love to dance

The performance industry can be demanding and can test your passion for it, so you must LOVE it. The ability to carry on and keep trying with them difficult moves or routines will make you a GREAT dancer.

3. Posture

Stand up straight, push your shoulders down and back, and hold your head up. It’s truly amazing what good posture does for a dancer.

4. Stretch

Stretching is a dancer’s best friend, the more flexible your body the better your lines, posture and ability. A dancer’s goal is to look effortless, so the more stretchy your legs the easier it will be to move them. Remember to stretch EVERY DAY!

5. Perform!

It’s showtime! All the hard work you have put in over the past few years, months, weeks, days or even hours needs to be shown. Be proud of the work you have done in every dance routine, whether it be on the stage or at the end of class, make sure you PERFORM! The expression and joy that comes from going full out in a routine will inevitably make you a better dancer. Smile, enjoy the thing you love to do, even if you are alone in a studio, as there is nothing better in this world than dancing, so show it!
