I know it’s true, yet I find it so difficult to remember – comparisson is the thief of joy, especially in dance class.
We are all different – with different body types, different talents and different difficulties. This week’s inspirational quote is a great one to remember if you compare yourself to others during dance class.
So during this evening’s class I’ll be trying to dance “better than myself” and spend less time comparing my progress to others. If this tactic was good enough for Baryshnikov, it should be good enough enough for me, too! 😉
Do you compare yourself to others during dance class? If so, how does it affect your dancing and how do you stop yourself from doing it? I’d love to hear your experiences, so please share.
