New Beginnings Quotes

It’s that time of year where dancers, teachers and dance parents are looking forward to a new year and a fresh start – a year of new beginnings.  A fresh start or new beginning can mean different things to dancers.  It may mean attending a new studio, dancing on a different team than the previous year, a renewed focus, the opportunity to perform a solo or trying out a new style of dance.

Approaching a new dance year can seem both exciting and nerve-wracking.  Here are a few quotes to motivate and encourage your dancer as he/she begins dance this year.
