In a recent guest post, Leora Amir shared her advice on how to boost and maintain the energy levels of your dancin’ son. I then interviewed her on this topic so we could go into more detail.
Your dancer is an athlete. All athletes need energy to attain peak performance.
Without energy, your son can’t dance for all those long hours. He won’t be able to make it through a summer dance intensive or a rigorous rehearsal or performance schedule. This lesson is one you need to learn and teach him. It’s a life lesson he will need long into adulthood and a professional career.
If you missed my interview with Leora, no worries! Watch the replay below.
