Every year at this time we help local charities by collecting donations. This year, we are helping CecilHelp4U by collecting non-perishable food items and new coats, hats, and gloves. If you would like to bring a gently used coat, it will be donated to the local elementary school’s coat drive!
This Saturday, November 28th, we will have a very special R.I.P.P.E.D. class with all of your favorite instructors leading you in a fun and energetic, total body workout with breaks for door prizes and other fun stuff. Plan to hang out with us for at least 90 minutes but you can choose how much of the workout you want to do. Bring 3 food items for our food drive and the class is FREE! Share this with your friends!
We are all so thankful for you, our customers and friends, and for your support for the charities that we sponsor now and throughout the year.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours from your family here at SunDance and SunFit!
Regardless of what age and level you are, it can be hard to be a student and a dancer. You want to be the best dancer you can be, but you also don’t want to fall behind on your schoolwork. Yet between homework, tests, practices and recitals, it can be hard to get it all done. So what are you to do? Consider these four tips on how to balance dance and schoolwork.
“Ask your dance studio owner or teacher for a estimated calendar of events.”
1. Get A Planner
Between school and dance, you won’t have much free time. That’s why it’s important to stay organized. One of the best ways to do this is to get a planner. As soon as you get your syllabus from each class, log all quizzes, assignments and tests. That way, you can’t miss your assigned homework or a last-minute practice. Visually seeing these tasks a week ahead can also keep you organized. Sometimes you might not know about a performance or recital until a few weeks before. At the beginning of the year, ask your dance studio owner or teacher for a estimated calendar of events that you can log into your planner as well. Hopefully those dates will stay fairly accurate throughout the year so you can keep on top of it all.
2. It’s OK to Put School In Front of Dance
Some days, it may seem like dance is more important than school. You have more fun there anyway, right? However, at the end of the day, academics still matter. If there is a way to compromise, then make it happen. Otherwise, put school first. At the end of the day, dance may not be worth it if you’re failing classes. If you have a big test or presentation coming up, work on it during your free time at dance practice or a recital. However, if you know that you won’t have that free time at dance, it might be better to skip it. Remember, you’re dance team will forgive you, but your teacher might not.
3. Time It Right
As a dancer, you may tend to put a little too much on your plate. Aside from school and dance, you may also try to balance a job, friends and time with family. Be careful – this can lead to a fast burnout if you try to make it all work. Each week, plan out your timing. Look at how much time you plan to spend at dance, at school, on homework and so on. If you don’t have time for everything, it’s important to cut out activities that matter less. Though it could be hard to cancel on good friends, it might be necessary. Make sure you dedicate the most time in your day to dance and school. If you have extra time at the end of your day, great! If not, then it’s time to make some cancelations.
4. Think About Home School
If you’re looking to be a serious dancer, it might be time to think about home school. That way, you can plan your hours around practice and recitals. However, if you decide to do this, it’s important to talk to your teachers, parents and dance directors first. They may decide against the idea or note that it isn’t the smartest move for you. Your parents or guardians may also note that they don’t have the time to teach you at home. Sometimes, you may be able to compromise. Consider meeting halfway by going to class part of the time and then attending dance classes for the rest of the day. That way, your schoolwork is still partially structured while being able to focus on dance.
