DCD’s Executive Director – Jennifer Curry – invites dancers to approach January gently.

At the start of a new year, many of us look to set new resolutions. What will we do differently in 2021? These tend to focus on what didn’t happen or go well in the previous year.  

This year, I am focusing on intention. Intentions allow compassion, for ourselves and for others. Intentions are not fixed, but can flex depending on where we are at that time. Intentions allow us to focus on moment by moment, day by day. 

I am reminded of the quote by author Cheryl Strayed:

“You don’t have to move fast or far. You can go just an inch.

You can mark your progress breath by breath” 

Breath by breath.  

When we think about career development and future goals, we don’t have to have it all figured out straight away. We can pause, listen in and set small intentions that might help us move forward. Just an inch.  

One conversation, one connection, one opportunity to hear from a new voice, can be a gentle start.  

No pressure to ‘know’ or ‘do’ just an invitation to ‘be’.  

This is all we invite you to do through  DCD’s one to one conversations, personal and career coaching and EVOLVE and ACT3 workshops – all free of charge, online and open to all dancers in the UK. Click here for more:

Breath by breath.
