12 Most Important Questions to Ask Yourself as a Dancer:

If you are a dancer, newbie or seasoned, I would ask you to consider these things if you have not already done so. These questions will provoke, and hopefully assist, you in focusing your dance gift and direction, in producing the desired results you are seeking with your talent. Having a focus helps place you in a niche, which you can become synonymous with, as opposed to being all over the place and not specializing in anything. A niche positions you for expertise level, while not having one keeps you at the base level, as you would be learning everything new for each dance and not really coming to mastery.
