Summer is a great time for dancers to take a break from their regular routines and explore new avenues of creativity. However, it can be challenging to stay motivated and inspired while dancing at home, especially when classes and rehearsals are on a break. At Nan’s School of Dance, we understand how important it is to keep the passion for dance alive even during the off-season. In this blog, we’ll explore some ways to inspire your dancer at home over the summer.
One of the best ways to stay motivated and inspired is by setting goals. Encourage your dancer to think about what they want to achieve over the summer. These goals can be as small or as big as they want, but it’s important to write them down and have a plan to achieve them. For example, a dancer might want to perfect a particular dance move or learn a new style of dance. Whatever their goal may be, it will give them something to work towards and keep them motivated.
Try Something New
Summer is a great time to try new things and explore different dance styles. Encourage your dancer to try a new class or attend a workshop in a style they’ve never tried before. This can help them broaden their horizons and discover new ways of expressing themselves through dance.
Watch Dance Performances
Watching dance performances is a great way to get inspired and learn from other dancers. Encourage your dancer to watch videos of dance performances online or attend a live performance in person if possible. They can learn from the choreography, techniques, and styles of other dancers and incorporate them into their own dance routines.
Create a Dance Space
Creating a dance space at home can help your dancer get into the right mindset and feel inspired to dance. This can be as simple as clearing out a corner of a room or setting up a small dance studio. Having a designated space for dance can help your dancer feel more motivated to practice and explore their creativity.
Collaborate with Other Dancers
Collaborating with other dancers can be a great way to stay inspired and motivated. Encourage your dancer to connect with other dancers online or in person and collaborate on dance projects or choreography. This can help them learn from each other and discover new ways of approaching dance.
Finally, it’s important to remember that taking breaks is just as important as practicing. Encourage your dancer to take breaks when they need to and enjoy other activities during the summer. This can help prevent burnout and keep them feeling motivated and inspired when they return to dancing.
