Supporting Your Success to Achieve Your Dance and Life Goals
Embrace Life’s Challenges with the Coaching Alliance
Coaches help clients make positive changes to create the most fulfilling life possible and maximize their potential. The essence of coaching is wellness-oriented but encompasses the whole individual and taking responsibility for one’s own choices. This is accomplished by “dancing in the moment” and engaging clients in commitment and action. Dancers face many personal and professional challenges and have a unique passion for their rigorous but beautiful art form. As your coach, we will work together in a collaborative partnership to explore and attain your life/wellness goals, visions, and desires.
Life & Wellness Coaches are not therapists, consultants, or mentors and do not engage in problem-solving or treat psychological disorders. Coaches use a holistic approach to form an alliance with clients within a shared, supportive environment. Wellness coaching for dancers may also focus on specific areas, such as those pertaining to dance training, nutrition, injury prevention, performance enhancement, work-life balance, and career transition. Finding balance and centering in our daily lives is an essential part of the growth process, similar to working towards these goals in the dance setting.
Work With Me
Get the Most out of Life with a Healthy Body and Mind
Dancers strive to be as healthy as possible in an effort to manage the demands of training and performing while maintaining stamina, concentration, and proper nutrition. Do you find yourself skipping meals, not getting enough sleep, or having little time for fun and relaxation to meet your expectations as a dancer? Maybe you have felt overwhelmed by the pressures and have moments of self-doubt, disappointment, and insecurity? Have you ever felt stuck or uncertain about how to move forward?
Dancers have many choices, opportunities and competing priorities to consider. Decision-making can be difficult to handle alone without professional support. That’s where coaching comes in -- having a clear vision of your goals, motivations, and desires can help you find the best path to follow. When you work with me one-on-one as your coach, we will develop a plan that will get you where you want to be. I welcome the opportunity to work with both professional and non-professional dancers, including dance students over the age of 18.
Working together will be an exciting journey of discovery to facilitate awareness, action, and achievement. We will explore and identify your choices, harness your strengths, and create action steps that will highlight and fulfill your true passion. Just as in dance, learning new steps doesn’t happen overnight, but patience and commitment to the coaching process will lead to enrichment and enlightenment.
What Do Coaching Sessions Entail?
Most coaching alliances are about 90 days in duration, but the time frame may vary with each client. The fee is negotiable, based on a sliding scale. Each session is about 20-30 minutes long, and we will generally meet on a weekly basis. The coaching sessions are usually conducted by phone, but other options include In-person, Zoom, or FaceTime consultations.
