Today, I had, and will have, the opportunities to work with Taliat Tarsinov in follow-up to some choreography he'd done for her and I. This particular student is already a beautiful dancer and we have a very strong partnership. However, he was able to help me see aspects of development for my student that I, being in the dance with her, don't get the opportunity to see. Regardless of whether I could have spotted it or not, the fact of someone evaluating the dance from an external view gave the student a whole new dimension she could work in. Often times, we as teachers miss the potential our own students can aspire to. A coach can help you see it again, and can rekindle the drive for excellence for both of you.
