How a dance teacher is a thought leader

A the leader of the studio, it’s easy to see how a dance teacher is a thought leader.

Do your students predict what’s going to come out of your mouth before you even say it. I’m sure they do, even without you knowing. I know mine do. In fact, during one season, I said one phrase SO often they made it into a sign for me.

Every time before we rehearsed our piece, these words came out of my mouth. “It’s Gonna Be Awesome.” It was all about mindset for us those couple semesters.

So now, it’s time for you to use your thought leadership from the classroom to showcase your leadership online. I want you to start using your own quotes on social media.

Right now, it’s popular to take lyrics from songs or lines from speeches or quotes from celebrities and make those into social media graphics. 

But I’m going to tell you to do the opposite. I want you to take words from yourself. Quotes from your teachers. The things that you hear in your studio over and over again and make those the phrases that show up on your social feed. 

Do it again!

One more time!

It’s going to be awesome.

Here we go.

Those phrases that your students know by heart. Those are the words that should fill your social media pages. After all, your social media content is a reflection of your brand. And your brand is YOUR words, not anyone else’s.
