In the performing/entertainment industry, it is important to teach our students awareness of personal strengths and weaknesses.
Within the same area, students also need to know their best roles and outlets for auditioning if they desire to perform locally or professionally.
Too often, people lose sight of the bigger picture and aim for something because of a personal connection to it. As educators, we have the opportunity to re-channel those energies into identifying a students’ strongest areas.
This is a learning process, but it is an important lesson to teach. From work within the classroom to performing dances, think about how you can weave a conversation about self-awareness into your lesson plans.
