About the Book
This word, even though small, encompasses a galaxy full of possibilities. As dancers, we CREATE daily. We make an impact on our audiences by dancing through our joys, sorrows, and fears. We are strong, technical, athletic, STORYTELLERS. The purpose of this journal (yes, it will make you pick up a pen!) is to better connect you to your art form. It asks the why's, gives you space to be creative and technical, helps in goal setting, allows for reflection, has a place for your instructors to level you up in individual steps and MUCH MORE! Every question asked regarding your performances, no matter if it's how to wear your hair or what your favorite lyrics are. These questions are intended to transform the space you are dancing in and transform you into the best dancer, artist, storyteller, you can be.
KEEP CREATING, KEEP DANCING!
Being in love with dance her whole life, Amy Ruth has driven nationwide (multiple times!!), to share what she feels will be a huge impact on the next generation of dancers. Her childhood dance instructor taught her at a very young age, to use music and dance therapeutically. "Ms Margie," believed giving her dancers the freedom of choosing their own music and costumes to connect them better to their performances. This sparked Amy's passion for the art form, and now, after dancing through 35 years of her life, her passion is to encourage the next generation of dancers, in creating their own choreography. She believes wholeheartedly, bringing life experiences, no matter joyful or tragic to the stage, can be healing and powerful. After nearly 20 years of teaching, Amy currently resides in Southern California, where she works daily in teaching her students to "CREATE"
