(This is a copy of the letter I sent my students last night)
Balletto’s dancers… Thank you for a phenomenal week of rehearsals. I am so very proud of each and everyone of you. Now is the time to shut out the noise … Ignore or shut out any negative thoughts, behavior, or words of others … They don’t know your hard work, they don’t see you sweat… Their doubts are just selfish fears. This is YOUR time. YOU are ready. YOU have put the work in. YOU have trained all year for this moment. YOU know how strong you are and what YOU’RE capable of. YOU are amazing. I BELIEVE IN YOU!!! So let’s go out there and show them what you’re made of. 💖
You are ALL powerful, beautiful, brave, talented and unstoppable. The only validation you need is from YOU! Be proud of YOU and everything you’ve accomplished.
