Teaching and Inspiration

September 30, 2012

Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement, nothing can be done without hope and confidence.” — Helen Keller

I love to teach. Love it. And I love my students. What is most fulfilling about teaching flamenco dance to me is the joy accomplishing a task brings to my students. I take great pride in seeing a student discover their abilities. ….The glimmer in their eyes as they find beauty in their own movement.

I myself have had INCREDIBLE instructors throughout my dance training. I feel so extremely fortunate about that.The discipline that being an artist requires has rippled into the other areas of my life.

In addition, I am aware of a spiritual connection that takes place when I perform and teach. There’s no doubt in my mind that I become connected to something greater.

I have much gratitude for the busy week that lies ahead filled with lessons. And I can’t help but express my appreciation for the work that I have in my life.

Sincerely,

Lena Jácome
