I wasn't the only one competing this past weekend! A friend and follower of mine also competed, a debut performance with her new dance teacher. She is also one of the 10 people who took advantage of the beta release offer for the Solo Practice Guide for Ballroom Dancing.
After her event this weekend, she told me "reading your blog and Solo Practice Guide helped me stay motivated and overcome my self doubt and insecurities."
Words can hardly describe the feelings I felt. Some mixture of overjoyed, humbled, proud, and whatever emotion you feel when you realize your dream and purpose of your work are becoming reality.
She also told me that knowing she wasn't alone in facing down her demons gave her the strength and courage to go for it.
Shannon, I'm so happy and proud of you! Thank you so much for bringing me along on your dance journey.
The full Guide is still in beta, but if you're ready to gain confidence and improve your dancing now, sign up for the free Solo Practice worksheet at practiceballroomdance.com.
