The Best Advice For Dancers

Whether this is your first year of dance, or you consider yourself a seasoned veteran, we can all benefit from some advice. So if you are looking for advice on how to improve as a dancer, you came to the right place! We reached out to our dance community and asked; what is the best dance advice you have ever received? 


  1. Go back to the basics if you want to get better.

We couldn’t have said this better ourselves. If you’re not good at the basics, how do you expect to improve? The basics are the foundations. Having the basics should make everything else just a little bit easier.

  1. Technique can always be taught but passion can not. So take what you have that is so special, that light, that passion, that fire inside that makes you stand out on stage and don't let any one ever diminish it.

Wow, well said! Anyone can learn technique, but not everyone has the passion. So don’t let anyone ever dim your passion.

  1. Not what was said but what was done....resilience.

Learn from your past mistakes of both your self and others, because you can always learn from someone else’s mistake. It is also important to know to move on instead of constantly critiquing that one performance you did. 

We could not have said this better ourselves! Regardless of if you’ve heard this advice a thousand times, or this is your first time hearing it, remember it. You can stretch everyday and practice all the hard steps, but if you don’t know the basics, don’t have the passion, or can't learn from your mistakes, you’re going to have a hard time improving. We hope you take this advice into practice and become the best dancers you can be! What other advice have you received as a dancer?
