Conquer the Mirror!

A typical day for a dancer goes something like this. ALARM-COFFEE-TIGHTS-MIRROR-MIRROR-LUNCH-MIRROR-MIRROR-MIRROR-DINNER-SHOWER-BED. We spend the majority of our existence facing a mirror. We are vividly aware of good days, bad days, skinny days, fat days.

Today’s note is CONQUER THE MIRROR! Let’s face it dancers-we need to see what we are producing. At the same time we need to realize that mirrors are deceiving. Their voices are often untrue and their constant desire for more/better/best is just smoke and, well, mirrors. You are beautifully and wonderfully made! Your true reflection is far deeper than a sheet of glass. Once you find that honest reflection of who you are-YOU’VE CONQUERED THE MIRROR.

Now you can enter the studio with confidence. You’ll find more time to laugh with those around you in class and you can leave each day with a true inward smile. And, more importantly, you become the very best YOU that is meant to be.

Conquer the Mirror!
