One year down

Things I learned from dance this year:

I’m love teaching dance, don't love running a buisness.

5 minutes is late for some people and 45 min is not late for others.

Expect surprises at the recital. The dances I thought would crash and burn were great and great ones crashed and burned.

Some girls love to dance, others love to talk.

It seems like I’m to only one who believes that the right move at the wrong time is still the wrong move!

It is just as scary to be off stage as on when you are in charge.

No matter how many times you ask, little hands will find and touch great big mirrors (also little feet and tongues etc . . .)

My family has to help me just as much with my business as with my life. Thanks Mom (Stage coordinator), Kem (backstage help), Lindsey (backstage help), Devin (photographer), Terrilyn (Reed’s guardian) and Eric (my go to guy). You guys were awesome!!!!

Saddest part: I miss just watching my own little girl shine! But wouldn’t change being her teacher for anything.

Most rewarding part: Seeing girls actually try and get better.

Hardest part: Asking for money.

Best Part: Doing what I love in my own home and getting paid for it.

Loved this first year hoping for many more to come!

Great job! What an accomplishment for you! Too bad we don't live closer. I'd love for you to be Halle's dance teacher.
