Work to conquer discouragement

Work to conquer discouragement. Understand that frustration does not mean failure. Frustration is just part of the learning process. Don’t let it get to you. Every dancer learns to overcome frustration with positive effort. You will learn how sweet it is to keep at a dance step until you master it. You will work and you will win. Understand that whether you think you can or think you can’t, you are right. Beginning students often repeat the same frustrated sayings: “I have two left feet.” Or “I have a tin ear.” This kind of negative attitude is not helpful. We insist that anyone can learn to dance if they are willing to apply their attention and patience to the task. Stay positive. Give yourself a break and keep making the effort. Consistent effort over time is the only sure way to success in dance.
