Dear Janie -- I am very proud of you

After I read your post I sat with your words for a few days. I am
wondering how much of your day is actually spoken. Speaking of the
excitement of being 'seen' by your teachers to learn a part that you
may never perform on stage, yet will perform in the studio. Or the
desire to say to another, "I can see your disappointment because you
wanted that part and someone else got it."

This certainly is
not exclusive to ballet. However, ballet is a never ending pursuit with
little rest and a few king words here and there.

One must really want to dance ballet.

5 DAY CHALLENGE -- I am very proud of you. You have taken a simple
strategy and created a tool for yourself that can be used any time. It
is at your disposal.
Remember that when Janie is dancing as Janie
that she too is at her best. You may not know that there is a
developing dancer who is using YOU as her 'as if.'

GREAT that you enjoyed -Self-Talk (written by me). It is a simple yet important part of reducing stress related tension when dancing. It can be so much a part of us that we don't realize that we are so negative ... The link is above ...
