Leadership In The Studio

Growing as a teenager, and even now as an adult, I am often complimented on my leadership. What stands out is my attention to detail, compassion, and initiative. This is all thanks to being raised in a dance studio where these qualities of leadership are highlighted. We were expected to be leaders in the studio, not just in the competitive company. Leadership is valued just as much as dancing ability and talent. My studio’s leadership program creates weekly lessons on five character values: Trust, Serve, Love, Excellence, and Growth. Throughout my time as a dancer at my studio and as an original member of the leadership program, I found these five values quickly found themselves into my leadership skills, dancing, and life as a whole.
