Enrollment for The Whole Dancer Program is now ongoing!

If you haven’t signed up yet, it could be that you’re not quite sure or don’t think the timing is right. Your summer might already be super packed OR you were just planning to take it easy.

And, can’t you just figure out this stuff on your own?

I hear what you’re saying.

So, I’m going to share why many dancers struggle and stress.

Blind spots.

From the very beginning of your training, the focus is on technique, technique, technique. This persists for much of your early years with maybe a bit of performance quality and artistry thrown in.

Then, you get to the point where you’re entering your first company or high level professional training program.

Suddenly, in addition to technique, you’ve got to feed yourself, take care of your body, make strategic career decisions, create relationships with new dancers and artistic staff, adjust to getting fewer corrections and less guidance, and manage the stress that comes along with all of that.

As you adjust, you’ll try to find a way to get even just one of those areas under control and you’ll put your blinders on to the rest.

The truth is, to continue to grow and reach your full potential, all of those things need to be aligned. You can spend several years trying to get it all in order. All the while compromising your position as a professional dancer.

That’s why I created The Whole Dancer Program.

My blinders were on for almost my entire career and as I look back I know I never reached my full potential.

I want to help you fast track your success!
