Sixty minutes of Kim McSwain was exactly what my faculty and I needed this month! Kim has a natural ability to motivate and inspire any audience. She empowers her listeners! With her refreshing reminder that dance teachers really do change lives, Kim brought positivity with a narrative of excellence. One important topic that Kim shared was how to help our students express emotions. Kim has many recommendations on how to help our dancers. With so many of us trying to cope, Kim was able to provide a number of tools and exercises that my faculty and I will use to build up student morale and boost our dancer’s confidence. GOLD! She even shared ways to help our very young students. For me as a business owner, Kim provided a few tips on marketing and advertising. She has a unique view on promoting dance lessons that every dance studio owner should hear. Kim McSwain reminded me of why I love what I do, and she helped fill the cups of my faculty. My favorite quote from Kim that day was, “Confidence is classy!”
It happens to even the very best of dance schools. A negative culture can creep in, causing students to fail to reach their potential and teachers to feel frustrated and ineffective.
The Movement was created to address the problems which are common to dance studios around the globe.
Call it a retreat… an intensive, a seminar… when you’re joined by The Movement, you’ll receive two full days of mentoring, inspiration, motivation and education.
The Movement goes beyond dance, giving students an escape from their regular classes. This event teaches the true gifts of self-confidence, vulnerability, acceptance and hard work, in a safe and judgment-free space.
