We asked our Summer Series Contributors to share one piece of advice that they wish they had known five years ago.


Don’t allow yourself to get complacent. Keep learning, taking classes, attending seminars, watching videos, reinventing your studio and values as the times change, and remember why your are doing what you are doing.


Don’t allow bitter jealous people to effect your mission


This industry is absolutely heartbreaking with who will try and bring you down and who will betray you. Keep pushing. If you have the passion of dance, you cannot let anything bring you down.


Don’t teach in your bare feet so much…it’s really bad for you!


What have you learned in the past 5 years? How can you apply it to your current work to prompt even greater success?
