In 2011, I had a young, male student participating in a solo title competition for dancers ages 7-9. It was his first major competition and a very exciting experience! A young girl that was also competing (from another studio) was so thoughtful to give our contestant this homemade shirt:

This was such a sweet and creative gesture. Nearly two years later, I still think about the kindness of this act and how happy it made my student.

 We should never underestimate the power of a gesture, no matter how small! How many small acts of kindness can you incorporate into your day, week, month, and year?
