Rhee Gold's Dance Life

Rhee Gold's Dance Life, formerly Dance Studio Life magazine offers information, education and inspiration for dance teachers and studio owners.

Dance Studio Life, which celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2014, continues to grow in numbers of subscribers and advertisers. Guided by Rhee Gold’s philosophy that people in the dance industry crave content that is relevant to their lives and businesses, Dance Studio Life is at the forefront of the dance-education field. The magazine’s articles guide readers in the classroom, sharpen their business skills, help them boost enrollment and expand their studios’ offerings, and keep them up to date on practices, philosophies, and perspectives related to dance education.

Mission: Rhee Gold’s passion for dance and dance education began at the age of three and has been at the forefront of his journey ever since. This passion is founded on the belief that dance enhances the lives of the millions who have the opportunity to experience it as an art form. Dance teachers are truly mentors, leaders and teachers who must take responsibility for maintaining high standards in dance education and business practices. The influence on the children who dance through our schools will last long after the lessons have ended, and it is our responsibility to pass on a love for dance and children with charity and integrity.

"That dandelion bouquet she gave you. A gift from a child's heart. How cool is that!" ~Rhee Gold

" WHY DANCE?
Young dancers develop healthy bodies, gain a sense of balance by managing their commitments to dance and academics; work with mentors who are focused on the students’ success; enjoy friendships that will last a lifetime; and feel a sense of belonging to an extended family of fellow dancers, teachers, and parents." - Rhee Gold

WHAT IS GOOD DANCE?

They don’t perform grand leaps, not one fouetté turn nor a single pirouette, and there’s no flash at all. Yet you watch them with your mouth open, while that head-to-toe body chill takes over your full being for a few moments as you settle into the greatness before your eyes.

You know the feeling—it’s the one we experience when we see phenomenal dancers or companies perform a masterpiece. Yet the dancers I’m writing about are not the ones who receive rave reviews from the dance critic in the New York Times. Actually, they probably wouldn’t come up on the radar of any critic or some people who think they know great dance. But to me—and I know I’m not alone—Company d, a Memphis-based group that bills itself on its website as “a performing arts troupe of young adults with Down Syndrome,” is capable of taking its audience to the same place any professional performance could.

So what is great dance and who created the meter by which we judge it? I wonder how high on that meter a group of dancers who move you with their spirit or joy would be. Might they land in the same place on the meter as the arabesque in relevé with perfect turnout and a fabulous line? Could the sense of accomplishment radiating from the dancers’ spirits make the meter rise at all? I don’t know.

If a 62-year-old man who always wanted to tap dance finally gets himself a pair of tap shoes, along with the guts to walk into a class, will he feel the same sense of accomplishment as the ballet company soloist who is finally performing the piece she only dreamed of a few years back? I wonder.

Is the student who comes to class once a week, who has a passion that you can feel when she enters the room, at the same place on the meter as the girl who is there every day, taking every class, and has no passion but believes she is awesome?

Would the 6-year-old cancer patient who is in dance therapy, moving her arms over her head, pretending to be a ballerina, land anywhere on the meter? I’m not sure.

OK, so why am I not sure? Because I always hear dance people say, “Oh, she’s fierce,” when they see a dancer execute some fabulous trick, while they pooh-pooh the 62-year-old guy in tap shoes.

I’m not sure because a lot of the dance we see today is judged for its technical feats and passion has nothing to do with it. It happens on our television sets every week; it happens on dance competition stages every week; and it happens in the classrooms where dancers are striving only to be better than someone else.

This I do know: I would pay twice the ticket price to see Company d perform as he would any great dance company.

HAVE A GREAT DAY👍 Rhee
