Self-Confidence & Self-Esteem in Dance

with Isabelle Schramm



    Self-confidence and self-esteem are two key components of mental health and facilitate self-fulfilment in dance. Yet, how can we define them and how do they differ? Self-confidence is the belief in one's own abilities and self-esteem corresponds to the awareness of one's worth. In this webinar, we will share emotional states as well as current needs in dance and discuss various practical tools to strengthen these two components.

    How can I distinguish between my personal identity (being myself) and my identity as a dancer (being a dancer)?

    Distinguishing between being yourself and being a dancer requires thoughtful reflection. Dancing demands determination, energy, and time, and dancers often prioritize it greatly. However, as individuals, it is essential to find a balance between our identity as a dancer and our overall existence. Remember that you are more than “just” a dancer; other aspects of your life are significant as well. While it is important to approach dance with dedication and strive for personal achievements, it is equally crucial to recognize your values beyond the realm of dance. Give yourself permission to lighten the load and alleviate pressure. Taking breaks from dance, exploring new experiences, and gaining fresh perspectives can benefit your mental well-being. Embrace the opportunity to step away from dance temporarily and return with a renewed mindset.
