Self-Confidence and Dance Costume Choices

self-confidence

Last year, we featured a post titled “10 Appearance Related Distractions for Competitive Dancers.” While these 10 distractions are all accurate, it is also important to consider the dancers’ self-confidence, self-image, and self-esteem when you are making your costume selections.

  1. It is imperative that we costume our dancers in an appropriate way that makes them feel great, on and off stage.
  2. In a world that is so image-oriented, we need to positively uplift our dancers in their appearance and self-perception.

Think about it: as Teachers, Studio Owners, and Parents, we have the opportunity to positively influence the young dancers and girls of the future.
