It's Monday again, which means you're all probably sitting in the studio, drinking coffee, bracing for a long and difficult day ahead. Well guess what, people—it doesn't have to be that way! Mondays get a bad rap, and it's all because of negative attitudes. Shift your perspective, and you'll see that they can actually be some of the best days ever!
Check out our list of 5 reasons why dance teachers should love Mondays, and get ready to have the best day of your week!
1. You get a clean slate.
Leave whatever drama or challenges you faced last week in the past. Today you have the chance to start over with a fresh perspective.
2. Your dancers are recharged, rejuvenated and ready to do their best work.
As we all know, rest is crucial to a dancers' success. When your dancers come to class on Mondays after taking Sunday off, they're in the freshest place, both physically and emotionally, that they will be all week. Use this to your advantage!
3. It's a great time to set new class goals.
Mondays are the perfect excuse to sit your students down and talk about new goals and resolutions you'd like them to take on as a team. Whether they're technical, social or movement-based, the start of the week is a natural time to get them thinking of new objectives.
4. You've got the whole week to prep for your weekend performances.
If you have a competition or performance coming up (which, let's be real, you probably do), Mondays allow you start the week off productively. You've got five whole days to get your numbers cleaned and into tip-top shape.
5. You've lived to see another week!
Things were touch-and-go after that horrendously stressful rehearsal last Saturday, weren't they? You thought it might be the death of you, huh? Well guess what? It wasn't! You get to live another week, teach dance and shape minds. You're awesome! And you can do this dance-teacher thing—Mondays and all!
