Welcome to Your Happy Place

Laugh. Seriously.

Be nice. Only positive comments about yourself, your dancing, and the folks you share this space with are welcome here. Labels and name-calling can hurt. Gossip and rumor-milling can hurt.

Use your voice to perpetuate truth and love. Promote respect for yourself, each other, the space, and the community.

Communicate as honestly and clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings.

Compare yourself and your abilities only to your previous self and abilities.

Breathe; it’s not about you. What others say and do is a result of who they are, not who you are. Avoid taking anything personally.

Listen to your body. Take care of yourself. Always do your best.

Enjoy the work. It’s about the process, not the product.

Thank each other often. Gratitude is powerful.

Be the change you wish to see. We are each responsible for the strength of our community.

Leave your baggage at the door. Allow yourself this time to be mindful and present.

Seriously. Laugh.
