Less Black Swan, More Born This Way
Why is body positivity in dance important?
We’ve all been there: spending so much time in front of the studio mirror that you begin to wonder how you can be too much and not enough at the same time. Then the black hole of negative self talk begins… and it’s so hard to get out after that.
Negative self-talk is something that runs rampant both in the dance world, and every day life. Think about it - you’d never speak to your students the way you speak to yourself. Words matter. It’s time to start using words to build ourselves, and our business up.
That's why I created Body Positivity & Empowerment In The Dance Classroom. It's a resource for teachers and dancers to build the best relationship with their bodies as possible, focusing on all the amazing things our bodies do, and all the fantastic ways our bodies support us, and our dancing.
Here's what the course covers and includes:
Nine phrases and team building activities you can use in your dance classes to empower dancers to build effective and healthy attitudes about their bodies, talents, and abilities.
How to weave affirmations into your teaching & additional phrases that will reinforce positive thinking in your students
Conversation starters to keep students (and parents) mindful of any limiting self-talk or beliefs
Group activities that are perfect for team building and creating a positive community
Tools to get parents on board
Workbooks for you and your students
Additional resources to continue your learning on the path to body empowerment
