  • Your responses...

  • Alicia D. - Mentorship is essential for professional development. Mentors are our guides and advocates. They see our potential, and thus believe in us. They can be very fierce critics, but always with positivism. Mutual trust and respect are key in mentorship.
  • Truly B. - Having a mentor can be a very valuable asset as an artist is starting out. Being paired properly is beneficial to both parties; one gets access to a wealth of experience while the other is challenged to remain fresh and connected.
  • Mariah L. - Yes. Mentorship is important to expand the knowledge of those who seek to increase their education and grow in any field. Choreographers need to have their own expression however, the knowledge of older generations is useful.
