Dancer’s year in review
As we kick off a new semester of dance and a new calendar year, take a few moments to think about what your goals are for your dancing.  Depending on your life and the amount of time you have been dancing, these vary a great deal from person to person.

A few things to think about as you look back on your dancing thus far:
What did you accomplish/what are you proud about with your dancing?  This can be as simple as making it through the performance, or nailing a combo you were struggling with.  If you can’t think of something, we need to talk J  I can list multiple things each of you have accomplished. 

In planning for the new year – What down you want to work on?  This can be one simple thing or a couple of things.
Looking back in one of my old dance notebooks, I found some of my own lists.  They were simple, like improving my chicken arms (yep, I had them), attending a workshop with Aziza, learning how to Berber Walk and elevator drop without pain.  

If you have been dancing for a while, these goals may include trying your first workshop, joining Shimmymob, or working on your physical strength to make you better dancer.  Need someone to help you be accountable, talk about your goals with a dance friend or me!!  Happy Shimmies!!!!
