Tiffany Henderson with Amanda Scott
Let’s be honest, only dance studio owners need permission to take time for themselves. Even though our dance studio businesses are a labor of love, it is important for us to take time to recharge after the recital season. Dance studio owners are in constant “work mode” and often struggle with how to wind down and give themselves a much deserved break.
If you are waiting for your to-do list to get shorter before you can take time away, it won’t. A lot of times after I take a much-needed break, the tasks look different to me. With fresh eyes and renewed energy, you will have a more productive way to accomplish something.
Dance studio owners never truly leave our work because we love it so much, but we have to step away to reflect and come up with inspiration for the new season; what dance number am I doing with this group, what recital theme I want to do for next year, etc. Some of the most creative ideas I come up with for my business are on thought up vacation.
Following our year-end recital it is important that we take a moment to celebrate our success and the completion of putting our shows together. In fact, after reviewing how I recover from my recitals and ramp up for the new season, I realize that there are actually three distinct celebrations that need to happen after the final curtain:
1. With your staff - this can be a simple dinner or small party
2. With your family - a vacation away from the studio, free of distractions
3. With yourself - time for you to recharge
Don't miss the ultimate recharge in Orlando July 12-14 at the Twinkle Star Dance Annual Conference. More info here: https://www.twinklestardanceconference.com
