The answer is simple…to unlock your true potential as a dancer, you must: 
- Elevate your mindset
- Discover how to approach your career from abundance, rather than scarcity
- Become a leader in your company and industry (and you don’t have to be a principal to be a leader)
- Trust your inner knowing & your capabilities (this is where your newfound belief is born)
- Focus on becoming the best version of yourself: physically, mentally and spiritually

So, where does this belief come from? If the only difference between a Core Dancer and a Principle Dancer is having confidence and believing in yourself, then continuing to push your body past its physical limits is NOT what will get you to that coveted spotlight on stage.

A PRINCIPAL DANCER FROM NEW YORK CITY BALLET ONCE TOLD ME…“A principal is not a better technician, it’s just that they have a newfound belief in themselves.”

The spotlight can be yours, and a fulfilling ballet career is at your fingertips…
