Greetings to everyone
I hope that you had a
quality holiday time with your family and friends
and ready to start 2003 filled with energy and
excitement. It is going to be a great year!
This week is filled with activity as we set out
for Houston and the
Texas Dance Educators Convention. There will
be well over 350 dance team directors,
administrators and coaches there to learn more
about improving our programs for students. We look
forward to seeing many of you there.
This weekend kicks off the Texas Rockette Dance
Experience at R.L. Turner HS and Dallas Power
House of Dance. If you have not already registered
for this weekend, you may do so at the door
pending space availability as class size is
limited. Find out
information about other dates and locations
and register online today!
Next week kicks off our
2003 Contest Season
with more locations and dates to choose from for
Regionals in addition to the largest
Championship in the country! Make sure to
register online through the Director's Corner as
soon as possible so that schedules will be to you
in a timely manner.
Here are some thoughts for the day:
"If better is possible, then good is not enough."
"The ultimate victory in competition is derived
from the inner satisfaction of knowing that you
have done your best and that you have gotten the
most out of what you had to give." Howard Cosell,
"Unless you try to do something beyond what you
have already mastered, you will never grow."
Ronald E. Osborn
As we approach the new year and think ahead about
making it a successful year for our business, our
family, our team, competitions and more, there are
some simple ideas for success that Max Steingart
has compiled below. It is a
short but powerful passage.
May you have a great week ahead as God has blessed
most of the nation with warmth, and, as always,
please keep in touch!
