And with all that running through my head, this blog from Shay Moore from back in August - which also links into a great blog from Rina Rall - really spoke to me.
Great thoughts on learning, on what to expect from ourselves, on the whole process - and on putting performance into perspective too. To quote Shay :
'As a student, our job is to enjoy the journey. Take our time, process every stage of our growth, and really sink into the details ........ Performances are brief. Classes and rehearsals are where the real meat of dance lies. If you don't love your time learning and pushing yourself in the classroom, you won't ever truly love dancing on a stage.'
Great thoughts for a new year and new term!
Until next time, happy dancing!
