I NEVER thought I wanted to be a teacher!
You see, I got my dream job when I was 34, with Pilobolus!
I was on tour and it was an amazing experience, but...
It honestly sucked.
I was the oldest one there.
It was hard on my body.
I didn’t really want to do it.
I came to the realization that I didn’t want to train in that way anymore.
And that led to a whole transition of breaking up with this idea of being an active dancer.
Long story short, I leaned into education and I fell in love with it. My students lit me up and my soul feels connected on a bigger level!
In episode # 149 of the Dance Boss Podcast, I share an interview I did for the Background Dancer Podcast with Jason Yap. Jason and I dive into my transition from student to dancer to entrepreneur, the hardships I had to face to start my online dance business, and the many mindset shifts I had to make to grow my business.
So tell me friend, what lights you up? What is tugging at your heart? Tag me on IG @erinpride and let me know.
