"Let It Go."
It is no secret that dance is hard. Physically, mentally and emotionally. And sometimes life gifts us these harsh reminders to be kind. To be respectful. To treat one another like you want to be treated. A reminder we are all human and doing our best. No one is perfect. Mistakes will be made. But it is how you handle them that makes or breaks it. We have the control to change our perspective and see the positive effect of all that impacts us, good and bad. As dancers in a company, ensemble, team or whatever you may call it, we have the beauty of going through things together. Going through life together. A solid group of dancers there to catch you when you fall. And at times quite literally. So be there. And when things get tough, look one another in the eye as to remember that you are fortunate to have each other. Grow from it, let it go, and let it be water under the bridge.
*This moment with the dancers of P&G marks a total of 111 dancers participating in an experience with DAP. This number seems significant and fitting.
My dear friend Brooke Paulsen Zelus introduced me to Christy posey Holden, director of power & Grace School of Performing arts. and It was pretty much love at first sight. There is something truly unique about these kids. Far beyond the southern hospitality, charm, and yes ma'am. I believe it was their love for tap that won my heart. once a tapper, always a tapper. they are so open and eager, and it has been a joy to see them grow individually, as a company, and as a studio. this year they celebrate their silver 25th anniversary. congratulations p&G. it means so much that you have embraced dancers awareness project and our mission.
