So how did I end up
coaching ballroom dancers
on their mindset?
I credit the Life Coaching tools I was using in my Life Coaching practice for my ability to navigate the ups and downs of ballroom dancing. I have learned that our mind drama is what limits our ability to express our talent and training to the fullest. I think a dancer in my studio recognized it too, because she approached me and asked if I could help her overcome the anxiety that had worsened so much that she had to quit competing.
We spent a few months working together, and long story short, we got her back on the competition floor where she said she had enjoyed the competition for the first time EVER! She had only ever felt stress and pressure at her competitions (and she had been dancing 7 years!!) We were on to something! I shifted my coaching practice and started taking on more dancers.
