You Talk, I’ll Listen!
One of the things I truly enjoy about blogs and blogging is the ability for users or readers of the website to add their own comments or perspectives. Often these are offered after I’ve given my own thoughts on a topic.
Sometimes, though, I get tired of doing all the “talking!” I am curious what the people reading this blog think!
So, I will occasionally offer Role Reversal posts.
Sometimes I will ask your opinions, other times I may ask you to share your experiences, and I might also bring a reader’s question directly to you (I don’t know everything, after all!)
You can respond by leaving a reply via the form at the bottom of the post. In this way we can all learn and benefit from each other. I welcome your participation whether you are a regular subscriber or just stopping by.
I was recently looking over a post I did a while ago on professionalism in dance. I realized that my dance and performance experiences have taught me a lot about leadership and conduct, and that these things have applications that extend far beyond just the dance field.
I have utilized the life-lessons I picked up in dance in all aspects of my life. And I’ll bet that you have too!
People often want to know what the advantages of studying dance are and I think a large portion of this answer, aside from obvious physical benefits, are the things we learn from practicing and investigating movement, working with others, etc. So, I would like to know…
What has dance taught you about life?
Feel free to add one thing or ten things! I’d also love to know how these life-lessons have applied in your work, or parenting, or relationships, etc.
