Any Non-Physical Dance Goals for 2020?

Just by nature, dancers are motivated, hard-working and dedicated to their craft and at getting better at it. It doesn't take a new year for dancers to brainstorm some goals they'd like to achieve, but the beginning of a calendar year - and, in this case, the beginning of a new decade - is a great time to get organized in your goal-setting. Some of the first things to come to mind may be things like higher extension, nailing that triple pirouette or spending more time outside the studio cross-training.

But have you ever considered some non-physical goals to set for the new year? They can be goals to feel happier or more fulfilled, or simply taking time to do things that make you happy in the new year ahead. Dance Informa turned to some faculty members at Broadway Dance Center to hear their thoughts on possible goals for dancers to better their heart and mind.
