What Makes A Dancer?

Many factors are important in dancing, from developing sufficient turnout, strength, and flexibility, to simply executing the steps. If you want to progress, you need to set specific goals and then find the best way to achieve them. But first, it’s important to know where you stand on the following:

* A sense of “calling” (your passion for dance)

* Kinesthetic intelligence (athleticism, grace, talent)

* Dance training (age when you started; number of classes per week; technique)

* Teachers (competent dance instructors)

* Personality and temperament (drive; resiliency; risk-taking; optimism)

* The right anatomy (genetic destiny)
