This past weekend, one of my college mentors passed away. A few weeks prior, one of my middle school math teachers passed away. In dance and life, we have mentors that surround us throughout our journey. They instill wisdom, offer support, and challenge us to do better and be better. Often, we model some of our own philosophies and teaching techniques after others that have inspired us. I find that exactly the right people are usually in your life at the necessary time to impart the needed knowledge and lessons.

With our mentors, it is important to show gratitude. Let them know how much you appreciate their investment in you!
