As dance teachers, we don't have much patience for goofing off. Case in point: Some of our trademark phrases are, "Stretch your legs not your mouths," and "If you have time to talk, you have time to go over the choreography." We are all about efficiency 💁♀️. So, the idea of celebrating National Goof Off Day may sound like the most absurd thing in the world to you, but hear us out. Your dancers work hard, and they sacrifice so much in order to pursue their dreams with you each day. Odds are, they need a break, and one day of goofing off may just be the thing that will help them recharge and come back more focused than ever.
Here's what you can do during class that will help your dancers grow as artists, while allowing them to let loose and chill out. Enjoy!
