Happy New Year!!
Like many of you, I’ve spent the last few weeks not only enjoy the holiday, but gearing up for a new year; clearing out the old and making room for the new. One of my practices for gearing up for a new year involves journaling and goal setting, and while I was doing these things, I had the idea to make a manifesto for myself - specifically for my teaching.
I started playing around with words - affirmations, positive statements, kick in the butt reminders, and then got to thinking, ‘well, if I need/want this, I wonder if other dance teachers do?’ So I asked around, and sure enough, you dance educators out there hollered back that you were into a manifesto too!
So here it is my fellow dance friends! Here’s a snippet of my 2019 Dance Teacher Manifesto. It reminds me of all the things I want for myself and my students and my teaching practice in the coming year, and I hope it gives you some inspiration and motivation as well!
To download the full manifesto, just pop your email below and I’ll send it your way. Print it out and put it next to your desk, teaching table, speaker or nightstand, and get ready to rock 2019 with me!
