YOUTH DANCER LEADERSHIP PROGRAM
YOUTH COURSE: Lead Like A Dancer
Why being a leader now as a young dancer is crucial to everything you will do in life.
We hear the word “leadership” all the time, but what does it really mean? You do not need to be an “adult” to be a leader. You don’t even need to be outgoing or loud or “the boss” to be a leader. In this 90-minute workshop for dancers under the age of 18, you will uncover exactly what it takes for YOU to use top-level-leadership skills in your everyday life as a dancer, friend, and family member. Led by Leadership & Life coach Michael Ian Cedar.
