During one of my private lessons last week, I had the sweetest conversation with one of my younger students:
Student: I hope I can dance on this team forever.
Me: I hope you will dance on it for as long you can, but you will eventually move on to bigger and better things.
Student: Well, I hope you will still be there.
Me: I will be in your front row, cheering, every step of the way.
The conversation was so honest, yet so profound. It really stayed with me and touched my heart. We have such a unique opportunity to inspire our dancers, and I hope that in the midst of the more chaotic times, you remember to embrace these small, special moments.
