Don’t stand at the back of class!

It gives you more reason to slack off.

In actuality, a good teacher can still see you and will notice you slacking off,

unless the class has a hundred people but that’s evenmoreso a reason to get up the front.

Hiding at the back will not improve your pick-up skills and your performing ability.

You will forever be the back-liner.

( Lesson Two )

Everything you do and every decision you make should be one step closer to your goal.

Some simple examples.

After a late night rehearsal the only food that’s available is 24-Hour McDonald’s. You could easily order a Big Mac Meal to end the night but you make the split decision to order the salad choice because it is your goal to be a fit athletic dancer when you go to Los Angeles.


The weather is raining and freezing and you really wanted to go to the studio to take a class. However you are heaps comfortable in your home clothes sitting on the couch. Get off your ass and get to class because you want to be a better dancer. A bit sacrifice will go a long way.

Be immersed in your dance dreams and eventually it will become real. 


( Lesson Three )

From the words of Bronwyn ‘Ambrosius’ Moses:

“…Class etiquette 101- class takers, u are the STUDENT. When the teacher tells u to watch and listen… WATCH AND LISTEN cos they’re the ‘teacher’! If you don’t coz you wanna do you’re own thing… do your own thing at home. I’m there to learn…”

( Lesson Four )

It’s the work you do outside of the dance studio is what will set you apart from every other dancer.
