Vision boards are a powerful tool to help motivate you as a dancer. Does anyone else get tired of taking class sometimes?
We’ll rest is important, sometimes we can get a little lazy with striving toward our goals. As adults, it is easy to put something like ballet on the back burner and lose sight of where we want to be in the future. That’s where vision boards come in!
They are a literal, visual, concrete representation of your goals! Nothing is more motivating than staring at a beautiful ballerina en pointe for me. It never fails to motivate me to start class so I can get there one day too!
What are your goals? Think big! Your limit is only your mindset. If you need some help changing the way you approach ballet as an adult. Check out this blog post, here.
Now that you have your mindset in the right place. Let’s dive deep into creating your dance vision board!
Step 1: Reflect
Okay, it’s time to go deep now. What are your goals? What is something you are working towards? Check out this post here if you haven’t already defined your goals. You want to know what type of images you are going to be needing.
As you reflect, try to think as broad or specific as you want. The vision board could be based on just improving your turnout, or increasing your extensions.
Step 2: Choose Images and Quotes
This is my favorite part! You can either collect physical pictures from old magazines, print images from the internet, or build a whole digital vision board on Canva!
I have this awesome template that I created that you can download for FREE. Use it to be inspired or you can print it out as is! I suggest printing it out on thick cardstock paper for durability.
Choose any images or quotes that will inspire you by just looking at them. As dancers, we can be very visual learners which is why a vision board can be so powerful for us.
Step 3: Create
Depending on how you choose to collect your images, you can either physically add them to a corkboard or print out your vision board worksheet you created in Canva.
You can add fun things after placing your images! Think of adding old laces, pointe shoes, buttons, or even thread. The sky is the limit and you should be as creative as you want to!
Step 4: Hang in Sight
You did the work and now you deserve to be inspired by it! Make sure to hang it in your dancing space at home so you can be motivated to keep working.
