I see you. You’re a creative person. You’re fascinated by opportunities to express yourself. To stretch your wings and try your hand at something new.
But the idea of stepping into the studio scares you. You love music, you love movement, and you know that there’s something powerful about the way the two come together. But that threshold between the world you know and the dance studio is a barrier for you.
That’s not a you thing. It’s a society thing. We’re conditioned to think of dancers as looking, being, presenting, and moving a certain way. We think of classically trained ballet dancers or the professionals backing our favorite stars.
But I’m here to free you of that misconception. To break down your barriers with kindness and some serious action taking.
Say it with me: if you are here, at Art of VIII, you are a dancer.
It’s a position you assume that very first time you step into the studio. Being a dancer isn’t about skill or experience or being paid. It’s a state of mind, and one that you alone have the power to claim for yourself. Read that last part again.
Are you willing to claim that power? Because if you do, a wealth of positivity – and possibility – awaits. Dancers enjoy:
- A release from the stressors of the world
- Improved physical fitness and flexibility
- The challenge of finding novel ways to move
- Access to a diversity of music – with no distractions
- A community of fellow soul-seekers
- The opportunity to find their own expression
- The development of artistry and style
- The accomplishment of performance for self and others
You are a dancer. I can see it in you. And you deserve to claim that part of your identity – to have it nurtured and celebrated.
At Art of VIII, everyone gets their chance to take center stage and shine like they deserve. I know you’re ready. If you’ve been waiting for a sign, this is it.
Step over that threshold and say it proudly: I am a dancer. Because it’s the truth, and you deserve to speak your truth. We are honored to be that safe space where you can move freely and express yourself through the singular voice that is your body.
Our door is open – and we hope you’ll take us up on our invitation. See you soon, friend.
