The Slight Edge For Dancers

I recently read Jeff Olson’s book, The Slight Edge. I was looking for information to help me improve myself, my business and my life. I found his philosophy so powerful and realized that it is applicable to any pursuit you might care about. So here, I apply it to the pursuit of Dance.

“Simple daily disciplines—little productive actions, repeated consistently over time – add up to the difference between failure and success” from The Slight Edge by Jeff Olson.

First Dance Class

You’ve taken the first step. You’ve signed up for a dance class. Now the real work begins. Being in a dance class is more than just showing up.

First, you have to have the right clothes to wear. You wouldn’t go swimming without your bathing suit or go to soccer practice without your shin guards, right? Many dance studios have a dress code (including shoes), so check and see what it is. At Arts in Motion we will measure you and order whatever you need and you’ll generally have it by your next class.
