  23. Hi All We have had a number of students come on our courses and private classes with me lacking in confidence and unsure if they wish to give up dance etc. Some from top vocational schools However when we sit down and chat about ballet, or dance then there tends to be a 'thing' that has changed their mind, an event!. Nearly teaching for 20 years and ex professional, I have tried to latch onto what they first loved in dance and try to take them back to that time, and make them realise that they can improve, that can love 'Dance' again. I hate to hear people turning their back on dance. We are humbled to say that we have had a good hand full like this join us at Woodside Dance Retreat, and they have found their love again with us, and it tends to steam from their confidence and not feeling good enough. Confidence is everything! This is just my experience. Keep dancing everyone! Nic x
