Giving Up or Going Beyond?

There is a blog post by Shawn Renee Lent that I just really love. Are you a dancer that gave up? In an art form that seems more and more focused on competition success followed by commercial success, it would be easy to think any dancer that doesn’t follow that path has given up on his or her dream. But what if the dream simply changes?

Getting the Most out of Private Dance Lessons

“Heidi, can I pay you to give me private lessons?” I have been asked this more than once by students in my group classes, typically on a night when we’ve done some particularly tricky moves. The short answer is “sure.” But most of these students don’t really know what they’re asking.

Discounts for my Students!

Years ago I signed up for the Discount Dance Supply teacher program. But since then, I’ve never given my teacher code to my students, and I’m supposed to. What?! I know! Apparently if you use my Teacher ID# at check-out, you’ll get a 10% discount the first time you use it and 5% every time after that.

I’ve always been happy with my online shopping with Discount Dance Supply. If you decide to give them a try, use my code and let me know if it works. 🙂
