I NEVER thought I wanted to be a teacher!

You see, I got my dream job when I was 34, with Pilobolus!

I was on tour and it was an amazing experience, but...

It honestly sucked.

I was the oldest one there.

It was hard on my body.

I didn’t really want to do it.

I came to the realization that I didn’t want to train in that way anymore.

And that led to a whole transition of breaking up with this idea of being an active dancer.

Long story short, I leaned into education and I fell in love with it. My students lit me up and my soul feels connected on a bigger level!

In episode # 149 of the Dance Boss Podcast, I share an interview I did for the Background Dancer Podcast with Jason Yap. Jason and I dive into my transition from student to dancer to entrepreneur, the hardships I had to face to start my online dance business, and the many mindset shifts I had to make to grow my business.

So tell me friend, what lights you up? What is tugging at your heart? Tag me on IG @erinpride and let me know.
