Yesterday we spent the day with our big girl at the ISTD National Grand Finals!! It is more than fair to say that I was far more overwhelmed than my 6 year daughter who was competing in her first ever National final! She ran on to the dance floor in front of well over a thousand people with out a care in the world and strutted her stuff, while I was an absolute nervous wreck in the stands! . . Considering Sianna has only been competing for the last few months she really was amazing, getting to at least the second round in each dance she competed in. We never got any trophies to bring home with us (this time) but the amount of confidence that is ooozing through this little girl because of her love for dance is so good to see! . . . Getting to see her step out on to the dance floor yesterday has to be one of , if not the proudest moment of my Dad life to date, yesterday a dancing queen was born!! . . . I hope I manage to get a ticket for the next event as it’s only usually 1 ticket per each child that competes, fingers crossed for the next one!

As a Dance Inspiration Coach I often times have the conversation with clients about the line between dancing in a way that feels good and true authentically while paying respect for a culture. . Even as an African-Caribbean-American, it’s a line that I explore often as someone who is greatly inspired by the youth driven African Street Dance culture. . I am a 39-year-old mom of two and I am learning about Afro Pop movement like many others, from workshops, from YouTube, and from IG; very different from how I learned Hip-Hop and Dancehall through my social connections when I was younger. . So yeah, I have some Dance Dragons connected to this line. But no matter how old I am and how I’m usually too tired to go out social dancing, there’s no denying what’s in my blood, the struggle that we share, the beauty that we collectively emanate, and the joy we exude BOTH through Dance and otherwise. . If you are someone outside of a particular culture, but feel drawn to a Dance style, I say to DON’T study the people...authentically CONNECT with, make sacrifices for, and examine who you are in context of the history of the people and see what taking responsibility for participating in the dance with respect looks like for you. IT’S DIFFERENT FOR EVERYBODY . . Dance. Inspire.

Oh Soca how I love you so 💕🎵 . . I grew up with you, but as a Bronx, NY born hip-hop 80s baby, I didn’t truly appreciate you til later in life... . As I get older, I’m much more protective of my energy. From the company I keep to the music I listen to, I try to maintain positive vibes. . These days, no music makes me feel as good, free, connected, and all the way UP like SOCA 🏝✨🙏🏾 . Also, I love how Soca music just seems to go perfectly with so many dance styles from across the African Diaspora. . In this dance you will see Hip Hop, Dominican Folk🇩🇲, Haitian Folk, Jamaican Dancehall, Nigerian Afro Pop, and Brazilian Samba. FULL VIDEO IN MY IGTV CHANNEL . See if you can spot the TRADITIONAL HEEL AND TOE FOLK DANCE OF DOMINICA 🇩🇲 in this choreography!!!💚❤️🖤💛 . My friends, I hope dance and music will always be your refuge to authentically feel what’s true to your heart. . And if you are receiving any messages externally or from within saying that what you authentically feel through dance is wrong, SLAY THAT DANCE DRAGON ✨🗡🐉 . . Dance. Inspire. Slay. .

Everyday in my most recent role as a middle school Dance Educator, I’m finding that the lessons, tools, and strategies I learned over the years to overcome my extreme insecurities and feelings of unworthiness as a dancer by Slaying my Dance Dragons are really carrying me through. . One of the main lessons I had to learn in order to truly step into my Dopeness is the Art of Letting Go. . As a dancer, I had to let go of the idea that if I wasn’t highly technically skilled, then I didn’t deserve the right to be a successful dance professional, despite my absolute passion for dance. . Going into my new role, I had this idea that success was defined by the students’ complete and enthusiastic buy-in of what I have to share. I was going to mold them into highly trained dancers. . Ultimately, when I got my ego out of the way, at this early point in the game, I’m learning to LET GO and am defining my success by the fact that, OK, maybe they’re not completely bought-in...YET, maybe they’re still insecure about giving it their best in front of their peers... . BUT they’re doing it! They’re trying it! EVERYDAY🔥 . As I work towards LETTING GO, I am choosing to acknowledge my WINS where they truly are and have GRATITUDE. . . And with this perspective, I am better able to not only see how I am Slaying as an Educator, but also how they are Slaying at this particular point in their dance journeys. . WHAT IDEAS DO YOU NEED TO LET GO OF IN ORDER TO SLAY AND ACKNOWLEDGE YOUR SUCCESS? . Dance. Inspire.

As a dance teacher and coach, there are times when I come across passionate movers, like YOU, who are fully invested in dance. . . You take classes constantly and you seek out dance communities that bring out your best because you truly want to BE YOUR BEST. . However, many of you succumb to the PERFECTIONIST DANCE DRAGON. 🐲 . Dance Dragons are those negative voices you hear in your mind in dance contexts, or even by the idea of being in a dance context, that tell you to hide, not be seen, or dance small to save you from fear of embarrassment, guilt, failure, and unworthiness. . The PERFECTIONIST DANCE DRAGON makes you believe that as a dancer, you either dance perfectly or not at all. So you self-sabotage in classes by dancing with half-assed effort or you skip them entirely! . As a dancer, your journey is never ending. The most passionate and committed dancers are lifelong learners and are happy to be a novice in some area or another. And being a novice comes with making mistakes that allow you to learn and grow. . With an all or nothing perfectionist attitude, you either think you’re prefect and have no room for improvement, or you are backing down from a dance challenge because you’re afraid to look imperfect. . Either way, you lose when you mess around with this Dance Dragon. . Dancers, SLAY the PERFECTIONIST DANCE DRAGON by knowing, holding, and believing the TRUTH that your WORK & EFFORT towards being your absolute personal best IS ENOUGH. ✨🗡🐉 . YOU ARE ENOUGH ✨ . Be inspired and inspire others by the way you push past these Dance Dragons, by the way you SLAY and rock your imperfections as a symbol of your growth. . Dance. Inspire.

My energy has been going to dance more in the past few weeks thanks to my support partner who always has my back. I'm excited to see my growth and musicality develop. it's always great to record yourself and then watch yourself dance because then you can truly see where you're at and what you want to work on. In dance there is so much to always work on, to think about and to criticize yourself for. And recording yourself is not for that purpose and if you're thinking not to do it because you hate watching yourself dance.. well after a couple years you'll feel a lot better about watching yourself dance on video. I know I do. You'll be more objective about at overtime. Video practice is also practice 😉 ---------------------++--------------------------- I not have rights to this music Song is called Starboy 🥰🥰 🥰 #freestyle #swouk #contemporary #dancepartner #dancestudio #danceteachers #nycdancers #partnerdancing #improv #allswing #zouk #wcs #westcoastswingnyc #musicality #dancecompetitor

Lily Meet Lilah! Lilah meet Lily. The way the “Bull Buddies” were received this year was as follows: each dance team had a piñata. Once the piñata was broken, each dancer had to find their name in one piece of candy. Then, they had to find the dancer that had the same piece of candy as they did! There are 58 dancers competing this year. There were 29 distinct pairs of candy!!!! @loribeth1017 I snapped some footage and pics of Ella. #DDCLove #BullBuddy #DivineDanceCenter #DanceCompetitor #Pinata #Dancer #WorldOfDance #DanceMom

*ZOOM IN- Lilah 2nd one in from the right!* My business, LovelyLips, sponsors my daughter as a dance competitor, so on occasion I love to share her dances AFTER she’s done competing. It’s not only a proud mom moment, but an opportunity to advertise the STAYING power of our makeup. Lilah wears my company’s makeup and I sell to (10) of her dancing friends as well The #1 seller is the required lipcolor Blu-Red! I finally received the dance video performed to SuperSonic, by JJ Fad. This video was recorded during DDC’s yearly recital, not a competition, although they did compete with this song at least 4 times: Charlotte, Roanoke, Roanoke, Virginia Beach. All of that to say it was recorded BEFORE competing at Nationals. This dance team improved 10x fold before Nationals, but this is the only video clip I have of this dance. We are never allowed to record or share thendance until after Nationals is over. So sad, it understood!!! This dance won a FIRST PLACE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP Enjoy!!! J.J. Fad has also requested to see this video. 😍😳 A special thank you to Will Anderson for helping me get this file from DVD to digital so I could share it!!! #BW5LipSense 💋💄 @j.j.fad @senegenceinternational

My dance usually stems from my joy, a tool to create joy within myself, or a vehicle to spread joy to others. . But there are plenty of times when I feel angry, scared, or sad. For some reason there is a disconnect for me, a Dance Dragon perhaps, in terms of using dance to express or process these feelings. . Though Joy is my dance default, I LOVE watching other dancers express the full range of the human experience. . I get to experience those emotions through dance vicariously. . Ultimately, whatever your emotional dance default is, joy, sadness, angst, sexuality, etc. see what it feels like to express another feeling. . As dancers, we owe it to ourselves to be full expressed. . @vumbambodance I was thinking of you when I wrote this. I love watching your emotional range 🙏🏾✨ . Dance. Inspire.

I’m just very juiced by the enthusiasm and passion coming from the set of dancers I’ve have been working with in the current cohort of my Slay your Dance Dragons Mentorship Program! .

Never be afraid to admit that you have a passion for dance or aspirations to dance. . There is a platform and audience for everyone; for YOU—and if there isn’t... . MAKE ONE! .

It’s a program for all dancers, from beginners to advanced, seeking coaching, tools, and strategies to obtain mental breakthroughs so that you can gain the confidence and self-worth, not just to escape feeling of embarrassment or shame as a dancer, but to unlock your fullest potential for growth and find trust and freedom in your own unique way of moving. .

There are many times (not always) where negativity is invited into our lives, not because we’re unlucky, but because we tend to manifest what our minds focus on. . When you have a deficit mindset rather than abundance, that is focus on what you don’t have rather than gratitude for what you do have and inspired visions for what you will have, you will remain in the mental and physical space of lack. . This is true in Dance and Beyond. . Draw your confidence from your abilities yes, but more so from your GROWTH and the knowledge the your best efforts are inspirational—FOCUS YOUR MIND ON THIS✨🗡🐉 .

“If you’re not growing, you’re dying”—Mary Steenburgen . This weekend I saw this beautiful tree during the staff retreat for my New Job as full-time Dance Teacher at Elmhurst United Middle School. #gratitude🙏🏾 . This two-way tree reminded me of one of my favorite quotes because life is a lot like this tree—it goes in two ways, growth 🌿or death 💀 . . And I don’t mean physical...how many of you can relate to wanting to pursue dance so badly but you relegated your dreams to some ridiculous impossibility. . You say to yourself I’m too old, not the right size, I don’t have enough training, I need to spend my time on a “real” job...meanwhile your SOUL IS DYING INSIDE. .

When I see that the participants walked away with, not only information and strategies to accomplish their dance goals, but also generally in their lives, I have accomplished my goal. . Dance Dragons are those critical inner-voices that block you from owning your Dopeness as the dancer you are and strip you of the confidence you need to allow dance in your life at YOUR BEST professionally or personally. .

Dance Dragons🐉, the negative inner-critic persuading you to dance in an inhibited fashion, convincing you be invisible or oftentimes not dance at all, mistakenly think they’re protecting you from embarrassment, shame, or guilt.😩 . They are quite sneaky because they speak to you...IN YOUR OWN VOICE! 🗣 . As our own worst critics, we impose limiting beliefs on ourselves all the time, but they DO NOT come from your most authentic self, your Highest self. They are repeating messages you learned along the way from society, your community, perhaps from teachers, and sometimes from your friends and family. . . After internalizing these LIMITING BELIEFS over the years, your Dance Dragons make it seem that these messages are coming from you. . My dancers, you are so very POWERFUL and beautiful just as you are. . . You are enough. . MASTER YOUR MIND TO MASTER YOUR BODY! . And know that, despite what your Dance Dragons may be saying, you have everything you need to take INSPIRED ACTION and put in the work Dance, Inspire, and Slay. . Dance. Inspire.

“A flower does not think of competing with the flower next to it. It just blooms.”—Zen Shin🌺 . Regardless of your skill as a dancer, many factors may contribute to why you may feel disconnected to what truly makes you DOPE, your UNIQUE MAGIC ✨ . So you turn to comparing yourself to other dancers as a measure; comparing yourself to make yourself feel good if you believe you’re better, or beating yourself up if you feel like you’re not as good... . Either way the information you get from comparing yourself to others will never free you from your Dance Dragons 🐉, the negative self-talk entity that depletes your confidence and blocks you from dancing at your best. . That’s why in my OWN YOUR DOPENESS IN DANCE AND BEYOND Live Webinar, I go over the techniques I used for myself and past clients that allow you to feel authentically CONFIDENT based on systematically creating mindset, paradigm, and environmental shifts so that your perspective of your own DOPENESS stems 😉 not on how you fit with mainstream ideas of a great Dancer, but how the unique path you craft for success FITS YOU!!!! 🌺🌺 . MONDAY JULY 22ND 9:00am & 5:30pm PST. FREE 🚨 FREE 🚨FREE . So sign up in the LINK IN MY BIO! 👉🏾💻 . THE 3 TOPICS IN THE WEBINAR: . 1. Finding authentic confidence as a dancer. 🔍 . 2. Creating new mindset habits 🧠 so that the confidence actually STICKS . 3. How to find an audience that not only values what you provide as a unique dancer but become your inspired FANS! 🙌🏾 . Again, this is LIVE, so I’ll try to answer as many questions as possible! . Confidence is yours, my flowers, claim it and BLOOM!!! 🌺 . Dance. Inspire.

“Yay!!” Two nationals down and one more to go! Next week we travel to Raleigh, North Carolina for Jax’s National Chanpionship!!! In the meantime, what did I buy both Lilah and her ”Bull Buddy” for the last final gift of year??!! You know me. I tend to be a themey type person. I decided to create a gift for Lila‘s pool buddy around the beach theme. She received a “Be Jawsome!” gummies, @betseyjohnson flip flop case, heart shaped glasses (for “DDC LOVE”) and a dance @alexandani bracelet. Lilah received the “Be Jawsome!” gummies, a @strangerthingstv @tervis, a “Dance” bracelet, and her first pair of @vans. 👎🏼 I’m not a fan of tomboy, NASCAR look-a-like shoes. Lilah is turning into her favorite @tiktok users. 😂 Sigh. Even though I don’t love them, she exclaimed and I quote, “Those shoes are the best dance go ft you have ever given to me!” 🤦🏽‍♀️🙈🙉🥇 #Vans #KidsFashion #MomGoals #DanceMom #Shark #Gummies #Dance #StrangerThings3 #Target

Lilah’s 2nd dance, called “Dance TV”, WON an award for “Brilliant Costume Design” AND (6) stars out of (6) stars, which according to the announcer, the judges say is very difficult to receive because that score means an almost perfect to perfect score (98-100).

DOPENESS=that ineffable magic that we all have as dancers when we tune into our authentic freedom and flow as we claim our DIVINE birthright to move our bodies to vibrational frequencies, better known as music ✨🗡🐉 . Everyone’s recipe for DOPENESS as a dancer is unique and valid. . . Having the CONFIDENCE to OWN YOUR DOPENESS is natural.🌿 . Dance Dragons, the negative inner-critic persuading you to dance in an inhibited fashion, convincing you be invisible or oftentimes not dance at all, mistakenly think they’re protecting you from embarrassment, shame, or guilt.😩 . Dance Dragons will make you believe that the elements of your DOPENESS are flaws when they are in fact, your SUPER POWERS. . So we SLAY our Dance Dragons by OWNING OUR DOPENESS!💥 . Here are 3 Tips to help you be more CONFIDENT and OWN YOUR DOPENESS: . 1. Reflect on your past experiences with dance for evidence of success. Remember you can define success any way you want. . 2. Develop a daily practices that remind you of personal qualities you appreciate about yourself. . 3. Find a dance practice or community that will push you to grow. Don’t make it too easy because confidence doesn’t come when things are too easy. That’s complacency. Confidence comes when you celebrate your progress as you push your edges. .

Our new home away from home! I aligned it perfectly. We are on the 15th floor, directly across the street from @cheesecakefactory, a mall which includes @nordstromrack, and the @sandlercenter where Lilah will be competing for a national title, and taking classes. My three crazies just walked almost an entire mile to @target and back with me. We could have driven, but hey wanted to “burn calories”. That’s probably a good idea since the cheesecake I am about to eat has 910 calories. 😬 #FunTimes #Summer #Summertime #DanceWorld

My friends, some of you may wonder why I’m as passionate as I am about helping others have more confidence in who they are as Dancers and Slaying their Dance Dragons. . The reason is because I believe that everyone can have the chance to have their own versions of success as dancers...and in that way be more fulfilled and live more authentically. . You being confident and free just for yourself, or for your contributions to the dance world, is not always hinged on skill but rather your magic, purpose, passion, and experience. . For a second, imagine that the only way to find a partner is if you looked like BEYONCÉ?!?! 😳😂 . No, finding a partner is about you knowing and valuing who you are as an individual and finding an ideal counterpart that also values you and upholds the reciprocal dynamic of you both bringing out the best in each other. . This is exactly what you need to tap into for confidence and success as a dancer as you connect with your tribe—your ideal audience, or ideal dance community. . So you see, helping others slay their Dance Dragons is my tiny contribution to the world that is meaningful to me because every drop in the bucket of positivity and raised vibrations counts. . Dance.

My oldest son, who is the sweetest 7-year-old in the world said with as much tact as he could, . “Mommy I’m sorry, but I think she’s even better than you!” 😂💜 . I laughed and said, “Of course she is!” . “But that’s OK because you don’t have to be the best to be an inspiration.” .

It is true that the more you grow in dance skill, the greater the likelihood that you will feel confident. . HOWEVER...did you know that often times many dancers suffer from low confidence and it has NOTHING to do with skill?!?! . One thing I have learned from my own dance experience and working with and connecting with dancers on every level from beginner to elite professional is that... . Everyone has had Dance Dragons🐉 , the negative self-criticizing voice in your head that coerces you to second guess yourself, dance not to be seen, and in many cases, not dance at all! . So you see, you can have years of training and because you lack CONFIDENCE, still suffer from Dance Dragons that sabotage your passion for dance. Dance Dragons make you compare yourself to others out of insecurity, or question your gifts and worth because of factors like your body type and size, race, gender, disability, age, or sexuality. . Tell me what Dance class is gonna train you in healing your heart wounds that I guarantee effect you as a dancer and in other parts of your life as well?!?! .

We were at a bar with a group of his friends and wound up linking up with my group of besties (second pic) and we all headed for REGGAE GOLD! . We danced ALL NIGHT LONG! I was in such a flow that someone came over and said to me, “you are killing it over there, can you teach me?!?!” . . Of course I can never pass on a chance to help someone slay and I gave a lesson right there at the club! 😂 . It felt soooo good to dance, JUST TO DANCE, which I don’t do enough! .

Ultimately our WHY, our purpose, is what draws us to Dance. Lead by our WHYS, pure love and passion evolve into creative expression, sharing a story, helping others, mastery over self, and many other wonderful reasons why Dancers Dance and aim to be excellent at what they do. . But along the way, it is very easy to fall into the trap of self doubt, excessive self-criticism, and the self-sabotaging act of comparing ourselves to others. . . Once these FEAR motivators take hold, it prompts us to train for the purpose of avoiding failure, looking bad, or escaping inadequacy... . The thing is...you tend to manifest what your mind focuses on, even if it’s something you DON’T want. . So yes, train hard and be mindful or your areas for growth and improvement, BUT never let this overshadow your WHY, the things that motivate you from a space of INSPIRATION ✨🗡🐉 .

When I first returned to dancing 6yrs ago, I enter a new dance class, show up late, sneak in, hide in the back & never wanted to be recorded, so no one can see the big girl. However, this strategy failed cause they always find me! And this time the instructor told me to do the dance by myself in front of everyone..YIKES! Well..no running away..Slay dem Dragons!

I was inspired to create this video because I had two meaningful life events this weekend. . 1. My youngest of two turned 5-years-old. I feel like I have completed a rite of passage as I no longer have babies!🎉 . 2. I auditioned for the @salsamaniadance Amateur Ladies Styling Team and will start training with them tomorrow!!!🎉 . I actually trained with Salsamania before I became pregnant with my oldest almost 8 years ago... . When I started my family I pretty much stuffed my passion for Salsa in the closet. . . I know that every mom has different levels of support and time freedom, but the time commitment for the Salsa Team just wasn’t doable for me as a mom with limited support while I was trying to get my own dance career going again. . But here I am almost a decade later, jumping back in with more passion and gratitude than ever! . Simultaneously I’ll be starting a new AWESOME dance position I’ll share more about later, I have launched my Slay your Dance Dragons Online Course allowing me to reach dancers all over the world and help them transform their mindsets and gain greater confidence, and I’ll be 39 in three months! . Ultimately, my Dancing Mamas, I hope that you leave here feeling inspired to never give up on your Dance Dreams, even if they come later. . You owe it to yourself and your children to be fulfilled and happy. Be a model for them that your Passions and Dreams are ALWAYS attainable .

When it comes to gaining Confidence, Freedom, and Flow as a dancer, the popular belief is to just take more classes... . But often times it’s not skill level that blocks your confidence, it’s Dance Dragons, the limiting beliefs that feed off general feelings of unworthiness, doubt, and insecurity. . . So Slay your Dance Dragons and watch your passion and ability to grow explode whether in skill, confidence, realizing a dance career, or beyond! . Check out this TESTIMONIAL from past online course enrollee @redvelvetburlesque . . “The course was very helpful in providing tools to work through dance dragon issues and coming to an understanding of why you have them and then developing plans to effectively battle them. The materials were thoughtful, understandable, relatable, and well organized. The group format was nice to be able to share with others and get their perspectives. She also emails the tools, videos of the sessions, and dance tutorials. It was all very information packed. . . However, the best part was Alicia. I opted in for the one-on-one sessions, which was a great value for the price. Alicia is a genuine and caring person who is passionate about dance, people, and helping others. She provided insights, perspectives, summaries of sessions, and plans for moving forward. So much information! I can’t say I am cured - I have a ways to go to be that (and will probably have a lifetime of periods of self-doubt), but now I have tools, techniques, and plans that I can turn to and help myself out of the negative thoughts and, even better, work through them regularly to stop many of those negative thoughts.” . I’d love to help you SLAY YOUR DANCE DRAGONS and find the confidence needed to feel and dance at your best. .

I really do wish I could spend more time with this woman, my mother. Being on opposite coasts really takes its toll. . This precious time I had with her over the week allowed me to really reflected on how hard my quitting dance as a teen must have been for her too. . Now as a parent myself, I have witnessed first hand how difficult it is to watch your kids GIVE UP. We want our kids to always have that fighter spirit, but when they don’t, there’s only so much you can say before you’re actually doing more damage than good. . My mother spent years investing time, money, and energy into my passion for dance and after one unfortunate year, I let it all go... . She was confused, and I’m sure frustrated and hurt too because she knew that dance was my destiny even before I did. . . This is why my personal Dance Journey back to having my passion for dance in my life and using it to help others isn’t just about me... . It’s about HER and showing gratitude for her every time I dance, and it’s about YOU. . . I hope that through my Dance Journey that I can show you that it’s never too late, you are enough, and you have everything you need to DANCE, INSPIRE, and SLAY!✨🗡🐉 . BELIEVE IN YOURSELF AND DON’T GIVE UP 💜 . #aliciathedancedragonslayer #dancer #amotherslove #contemporarydancer #contemporarydance #professionaldancer #dancingmom #growthmindset #zumba #mindsettransformation #hiphopdancer #hiphopdance #dancetraining #dancetrainingislifetraining #dancecoach #spiritualdancer #iwanttodance #iwanttodanceagain #ballet #balletdancer #dancerlife #danceislife #danceinspirationcoach #danceinspiration #jazzdancer #dancecompetitor #dancedragonslayer #learningtodance #dancestudent #danceforfun

🚨Dance Dragon Slayer Tip!!!🚨 . Full Video in my IGTV CHANNEL! 📺 . . 3 WAYS TO REBOUND WHEN YOU MAKE MISTAKES IN DANCE CLASSES! ✨🗡🐉 . Dance Dragons, those voices in your head that sabotage you while dancing, pushing you to make yourself invisible or not dance at all, LOVE to show up when me make MISTAKES! . But with these three steps you can not only keep those Dance Dragons in check, but also turn the mistake into a growth opportunity! . 🗡🐉STEP 1: Re-Center—the mistake may initially make you feel frazzled and trigger your anxiety and negative self-talk. To stop these reactions from spiraling out of control, say a release word like “SLAY”, “CALM” or any word that resonates with you, and take a deep breath. . 🗡🐉STEP 2: Reframing—rather than view your mistake as a shortcoming, hold the perspective that the mistake stemmed from you stepping up to a challenge, learning something new and growing. . . 🗡🐉STEP 3: Assess and Adjust—take a moment to figure out where the breakdown was; is your center of weight off, are you missing a count, etc. Once you’ve figured it out, adjust and move on. . If you are unable to figure it out, ask the instructor. Class is where you go to push yourself and get free. If there is confusion with the choreography or technique, it’ll be more challenging to get to the point of flow and freedom. .

One of the most common symptoms of Dance Dragons is the inability to bounce back from making mistakes. . Despite the fact that mistakes are a natural and often beneficial part of learning, far too many dancers frame them in a way that doesn’t allow you to grow from them. . See mistakes for what they really are A GIFT AND AN OPPORTUNITY ✨🗡🐉 . Dance. Inspire.
