Dance is tough on mind and body. Dealing with negative critical people is one aspect of performance. Some people will NEVER like your performance style, your body shape, your hair color .... and on and on. The more you step into the spot light the bigger your imperfections become (look at some of todays stars, family members, friends, politicians, other human beings). Mostly because what we look at daily is an illusion created by a computer.
Ever heard of a Troll. They are critics. They seek to demean and criticize AND GAIN PLEASURE FROM IT.
A. critics will always be criticizing
B. They rarely are creative other than with their words and comments
C. You must ignore them, otherwise YOUR INNER voice echoes them.'
Are you a troll of yourself?

9:00 PM? 8:30PM ? You can listen in and it will also be recorded.
I am working on this for you all so you can heal this part of you that does not live fully in your body, within yourself. ANY negativity drains your life force and creativity. No matter who says what or who does anything, you are and must be in control of what you believe about yourself.
Back to you ... Email me directly if you want to talk on the program about dancers and body image.
firstname.lastname@example.org. I will also be asking for YOUR QUESTIONS>

Class clown was helpful and kind and observant. Although his behaviors are not to your liking and his interactions may be immature and intrusive, he may be your partner in the future or he may do something thoughtful as he did or it is revealed why he behaves as he does.
Especially in a company setting, where contact is up close and very physical, you want to be as flexible of someone else's behavior as you can. LOOK for the nice things he does. Otherwise you will always SEE the annoyances and they become WHAT YOU LOOK FOR. We then do not see anything else. Shift the focus to WHAT else he does in and out of class. Annoyances - and goodness knows we all have those!
