Standard or Stand Out?
Perfect for Performance - Coaching you to Centre Stage
Career coaching for the entertainment industry
2013 is a stone’s throw away.
The murmurings of resolutions for the new year are beginning to make themselves heard.
How many of us promise life changing resolutions, only to have them abandoned by February? Admittedly change is not always easily achieved.
In the dance world our time is limited. The dance schools are churning out ever younger bodies, hungry for professional acclaim. And so it should be. Years of sacrifice and discipline merit the rewards of success.
But does the entertainment industry always play fair? There are those who seemingly float unfettered from one good opportunity to another. But there are those who, with the best will in the world seemingly stumble at every hurdle.
Having run the studio for over 15 years, I have witnessed a fair number of auditions, ( not to mention my personal experiences in my salad days). There are characteristics that seem consistent. There are those who are standard, but there are those who effortlessly stand out. The latter are beguiling, and yet the former challenge your memory as to whether they participated at all.
The dancer’s body is an instrument that is fine tuned over several years ( if not decades). It is the diligence of the activities off stage that nurtures the spectacle of beauty on stage.
But we don’t all share the same levels of self motivation. Some need support to thrive and flourish. Like the alarm clock in the morning, we need to be borne along by something or somebody external to ourselves. Annually replicating behaviours that lead to failure is foolhardy. Seeking help to achieve is common sense.
Happy New Year.
