  • Resilience

  • Challenge Mindset 

  • Positive Decision-Making



Today was a day not easy to explain in words.  3DCA was the first studio to participate in the Youth Leadership Online Experience.  This morning, Jessica Michaels led our teens through engaging activities that helped them learn empathy and inclusion towards others and began to develop them as leaders.  We had fun together.  We cried together.  We learned together.  We all started to understand each other a little more and began to learn how we can better the world and the people around us.  This day will not only change these kids... but is sure to start a butterfly effect of love that will spread for generations to come. 🦋

This afternoon, our Parents and Staff had the opportunity to learn about Wingman from both Jessica Michaels and Ian Hockley.  They were able to connect and engage with each other in a way like never before during this Wingman Parent Champion and Mentor training.  They learned about Wingman and why it is so important to our studio and the world.  They also learned about each other and how their role is so important in helping their dancers be successful inside and outside of the studio.

I cannot thank Jessica and Ian enough for this program.  It is changing the dance community and the communities as a whole around us!! And I’m so thankful to have it here at 3DCA!!

And if you are a dance studio owner... YOU NEED TO LOOK INTO DOING THIS FOR YOUR KIDS AND FAMILIES.  It’s worth the time!! It’s worth the money!! It’s worth the effort!!  What we were able to experience today truly is what is needed to change the world!! 💜💚💙
