Season 3!!? August is the start of our third season here at Chandler Dance Center and so it is time for me to reflect and evaluate where we've been and where we are going. This past year, we competed solos, performed a Holiday Show and had an AMAZING recital. There are girls at Nationals as I type this, I am drinking more coffee than should be legal and listened to more judge's critiques than I would have liked. But I have to stop in the middle of all this and think about a new road map. Unfocused energy is chaos. Going through the motions produces nothing. Breathe. Breathe. Breathe. Breathe. 5. 6. 7. 8.
I like where we are. We do our own thing here at Chandler Dance Center. My families can confirm. We do not require "company" and in fact we don't even have one. I like this concept. Dancers taking classes together to laugh and learn and support each other. When a dancer is ready for a solo, I let the parents know and leave it up them. I set group dances for girls who are ready and families who are ready for the commitment. Regular classes never morph into competition rehearsal. My dancers are not burnt out and injured. Yes, I like where we are.....for now:)
