Seasonality is the rhythm

"Make sure you sow in the spring, nurture in the summer and reap in the fall.

It's not just what to do, it's when you do it."

Roger James Hamilton

Nature is characterized by seasonality. Summer follows spring, autumn follows summer, and so on. People plant sprouts in the spring, and harvest in the fall. Seasonality is a rhythm. It is harmonious and understandable. But do we use this knowledge in everyday life and, which is especially interesting to me, for professional? In the dance system of relationships there are components of the Dancer - Teacher or Dancer - Teacher - Parent. Let’s take it in order.


TEACHER / TRAINER I am sure that we should not only realize WHAT we give to students, but WHEN we do it. The same information presented at different times will have a completely different effect. Complicated and new knowledge about mechanics and technique, changes in choreography, generally any new and complex information, require a sufficient amount of time to understand, acquire a skill, and consolidate this information.

It is also necessary to understand when we "grow crops." Regularity, repeatability, physical conditions - time of growth. Then comes the time of "harvesting." Preparing for the competition, understanding that students are ready to realize their potential, get results. I am sure that the teacher, regardless of where and with whom he works, should be aware of the responsibility that lies behind his words and information. And the question of timeliness is key here.


PARENTS Sowing and harvesting, preferably immediately, after a maximum of one day - this is the main trend of parental support. Like in a supermarket: paid - received. The difference is that Dance is not a supermarket, it is unsown field, often with weeds and difficult climatic conditions. And to grow a rich harvest on it - a wonderful dancer, it takes a lot of time, effort, investment. Working with parents today is, in my opinion, one of the most important component of the training process.


DANCER Regardless of age, the dancer needs a sense of Time. Children often lack patience and a desire to sow knowledge and grow their dance, the child wants to get: a medal, a cup, a result. Adult dancers, often in constant doubts about perfectionism, forget to harvest their crops on time. The dance “matures”, deteriorates, and most often this leads to frustration, disappointment and, as a consequence, the breakup of the couple. Following seasonality is a great skill. Understanding that there is a time to “Sow knowledge”, a time to “Grow a dance” and a time to “Get a result”. When everything goes as it should, harmony appears, the rhythm of life and creativity.

Think about it.
