Dance … an Investment!
Like other parents, I enjoy watching my children dance. And, like other parents, when it comes time to sign up for the next dance season, the monetary cost becomes all too real. But really, I don't pay for my kids to do, dance; in fact I don’t even care how many dances they enroll in. So, if I am not paying for them to dance, what am I paying for?
I’m paying for:
those moments when my kids become so exhausted they want to stop but find the determination to keep dancing.
those days when my kids come home from school and are "too tired" to go to their dance classes but go anyway.
my kids to learn discipline, focus and dedication to their art.
my kids to learn positive habits that develop healthy bodies and minds.
my kids to learn how to work with others and be good team mates, gracious in defeat and humble in success.
my kids to learn how to deal with disappointment when their dance doesn’t get the recognition they'd hoped for and arrive at the next competition ready to leave it all on the stage.
my kids to learn respect, not only of themselves, but of other dancers, judges and instructors.
my kids to learn success does not come over night. It takes hours and hours, even years, of hard work and dedication to become a strong dancer.
my kids to be proud of their small achievements while working towards long term goals.
the opportunity my children have to make lasting friendships, create lifelong memories and to be as proud of their abilities as I am.
my kids to be in the dance studio, being creative and inspired, while having the time of their lives.
...it would be easy to go on but the bottom line is, I am not paying for dance; I’m paying for the opportunities dance provides. Life lessons that develop attributes which will serve my kids throughout their lives and give them the opportunity to bless the lives of others.
Dance is an amazing down payment on how my children will grow into their future. From what I've seen so far, I think it's a great investment!
