Monday Motivation in Dance

Monday Motivation in Dance
How do dancers stay motivated to push forward in a field that is brutally demanding and, let’s be honest, often not as rewarding as we’d like?  I believe it is different for each individual, but there are some things that are true for everyone.  The link of the day describes seven steps that can be useful.
For dancers, I think it involves the sheer love of the art form.  We love it so much that we are willing to do whatever it takes to participate in it.  Even when we realize, as we often do, that a career as a performer is out of the question, we still want to be a part of the art form in some way.
So it comes down to love - a love of the beauty and inspiration of the art of dance.  Anyone, at any time, can participate in that! 

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets:

Motivational Secret #11 
“Motivation in dance is created by the love of the art.”

Quote of the Day:

“When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us.”

–Helen Keller
