(Question) Classical Dance Teacher new to Fusion Dancing wants to encourage more students.

(Answer) "I've been studying this extensively. The most benign reason is your typical shyness, which extends to fear of failure in front of others.  A greater toxic mind frame which I carried once is the belief "My dancing is so connected to inspiration and the music that dance classes would limit that".  The hardest thought process to tackle is a more extreme version of the last one that I mentioned but with additional hatred for teachers or authority figures.  Basically we are still waiting for some of these kids to grow up. Which is why a large portion of our attendance is 40 +.  If you can have a one on one chat with every person adverse to dance classes chances are they can be swayed."
