Should I tell my friends that I am dancing?
There are two schools of thought on this.
The First is that the more people you tell, you build a support system that will cheer you on in your dancing endeavors. If this is something that you have wanted to do for a while and you have positive people in your life that will help build you up in the process, then you should share away! This will also help keep you in the game on those tough days when you are conquering a challenging concept or step. They might even join you at the studio!
Some of us have some “negative Nancies” in our lives. No matter what you do they may put a negative spin on just about anything. These are the people that you probably don’t want to share with. They might tell you that learning to dance is too hard, too expensive or not a worthwhile activity. You know it’s not really about the dancing. They might be jealous, had a bad experience or a myriad of other reasons that they would trample on your new found desire to dance. If you have people like this in your life, maybe dancing is something special that you can use as a retreat for fun and enjoyment.
Whichever route you take remember that You are the one that gets the benefits of dancing!
