Happy New Year and Welcome to 2021!
We would like to welcome you all back to dance this week and to 2021 at Pegasus Dance Studios!
We had hoped we would be back to in-studio classes this week as we have all been doing our best to follow all guidelines for health and safety. We are close and we are staying the course to get us there as soon as possible. Thank you for sticking with us. We are grateful for all the love, appreciation and feedback we have received.
We continue to be grateful for your belief in us to provide consistent learning for your children. What we have learned from March 2020 with the limits given to us is that we need to dig deeper to be creative and to find ways to continue to offer the programs and learning opportunities for your children in ways that we didn't know were possible but are continuing to learn, pivot and adapt. Just like you, we ARE doing this and we are excited about all the possibilities to stretch us as educators.
Our faculty is excited to see you all back in class this week!
Has your child ever come to you and said they want to quit something? Maybe it was a board game or a homework assignment, or a project they started and weren’t motivated to finish. Maybe it was an activity you signed them up for after school; maybe it was even dance.
Although it tugs at our hearts when a student says they want to quit dancing, we know there are bound to be moments in any educational environment when a child feels frustrated or wants to stop. In dance, they might feel like they’re not catching on to the steps quickly enough, or they think they’re behind because their attendance has been erratic. Maybe they express boredom or say they’re “too tired.” Occasionally they may develop anxiety about something very specific, like the way their shoes fit or how they feel shy around their classmates. Any of these situations can make a young dancer want to quit, but we believe that more often not, quitting is not actually the answer!
