Happy New Year from Progressing Ballet Technique!

As the calendar turns to the New Year, we at Progressing Ballet Technique are filled with a sense of renewal and anticipation. This is a time brimming with potential, a moment to set our intentions and chart a course for personal and artistic growth. The New Year brings with it a canvas of possibilities, and we are here to paint it with our dreams and aspirations.

Setting Goals: The Path to Mastery

One of the most empowering ways to start this New Year is by setting clear, achievable goals. We encourage each of our students to embrace the practice of maintaining a logbook. This simple yet powerful tool becomes a map of your journey, where you can chart your weekly goals. The act of writing down these goals, and then ticking them off one by one, is not just a method of tracking progress; it is a ritual that celebrates each small victory.

This process goes beyond just achieving goals. It’s about recognizing the dedication, discipline, and effort it takes to reach each milestone. Whether it's perfecting a pirouette, improving flexibility, or building strength, each goal you set and achieve is a step forward in your ballet journey.

Embracing Your Pace: The Beauty of Patience

In ballet, as in life, not all journeys are linear. Sometimes, goals take longer to achieve than we anticipate. It's important to remember that ballet, like any form of art, requires patience and perseverance. This year, we encourage you to embrace your unique pace. Celebrate your progress, no matter how gradual it may be. Progressing Ballet Technique is founded on the principle of valuing progression over perfection. Every class, every rehearsal, and every moment spent practicing is a step toward your personal best.

Reaching for the Stars: Dream Big and Aim High

Marie Walton-Mahon OAM, the visionary behind Progressing Ballet Technique, often says, "Reach for the stars, but if you fall short, the moon is brilliant." This sentiment beautifully encapsulates our philosophy for the New Year. Dream big, set high aspirations, and don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone. Even if you don’t reach every star you aim for, you will still find yourself amidst the brilliance of the moon – achieving things you never thought possible.

Celebrating Every Step Forward

2024, let's make a commitment to celebrate every leap, every turn, and every step forward. Ballet is not just about the grand performances; it is about the journey – the countless hours of practice, the perseverance through challenges, and the joy of improvement. Let's embrace this year with a spirit of growth, achievement, and grace.

As we step into this New Year, let's remember that we are not just dancers – we are artists, dreamers, and achievers. Together, let's make this year a testament to our passion, dedication, and love for ballet.

Here's to a year of growth, achievement, and grace. Happy New Year!
