Lauralyn's philosophy of teaching dance goes beyond technique. She believes that passion, self-esteem, confidence, respect and work ethic all goes hand in hand when teaching dance. She doesn't simply share knowledge in the hopes of creating a flawless technician, she strives to help young dancers be the best versions of themselves.
Cultivating passion and using that ambition to create action will only lead to success. Self-worth and confidence will not only aid in the field of dance but on their path through life teaching dancers to appreciate their bodies and to be confident in what they say and do. Teaching a young dancer respect and work ethic will not only help their academic life but also give them a head start on a successful career.
The practice of dance is a perfect tool to teach the importance and put into practice these life skills and attributes.
