89 Positive Affirmations For Dancers To Breakthrough

Dancing is such a graceful and beautiful activity not just to watch, but also to take part in. When we dance, it liberates us. We let go of inhibitions and be ourselves at that moment. That is an awesome feeling, one which does a lot of good for our mental wellbeing too.

We learn to become more positive, inculcate self-confidence, and sometimes just don’t give a damm about what others think.

Whether you are a competitive dancer or just a casual dancer, these daily affirmations for dancers are sure to perk up your day and encourage you to let go and dance!

Preparing your mind for dancing class or competition

I am not a professional ballet dancer or anything close, but I do know a thing or two about getting into the right mindset and boosting my performance.

Positive affirmations have helped me to get ahead in my career and business and I fully trust the process. I think you can do it too.

Here are some of my tips to help you get ready for the next time you are preparing for dance class or ahead of a dance competition (this can apply to you too if you have a kid facing this situation):

  • Start with a positive outlook – Dancing can be a very tough activity especially when you get more serious about it. Memorizing dance moves, getting in sync with others, performing bone-breaking sequences. These are all difficult things to do. Rather than face them with fear, prep your mind to welcome these challenges and tell yourself that you can do it with time.
  • Face the competition – Your fellow dancers are effectively your competitors, but it is more important to honor the spirit of competition rather than let it become something divisive. Remember, your biggest competition is yourself.
  • Be clear about your goals – What are you trying to achieve? What level are you aiming for? These are important questions to ask before you embark on your journey. When you have a clear picture, you gain clarity and direction, which in turn helps you to reach your goals quicker.

How to use affirmations effectively?

  • Identify the negative thoughts that you wish to get rid of or something that you wish to manifest. Affirmations work in both scenarios, but you need to be clear about what you want. This post about learning how to write affirmations might help you out.
  • Use the following list as a source of inspiration and guidance. You may use any affirmation as it is, or modify it to make it your own. The key thing here is that the affirmations MUST resonate with you and is a statement you truly believe in.
  • Pick out at least 2 affirmations and start using them. 
  • Begin a routine of practicing at least twice a day of reciting the affirmations with each session lasting 3-5 minutes. Repeat each one 10-15 times daily. You can do this in front of a mirror, speak out loud, or do it in your mind. Do not skip any sessions. I usually do this each morning when I wake and before I go to bed.
  • Download and print out your own affirmations worksheet below to use as a guide for manifestation. Stick it on your mirror/journal/vision board, or anywhere you can easily access it throughout the day so that it can serve as a constant reminder to you. 
  • Alternatively, you can check out our Daily Positive Affirmations Cards which are designed and organized for you. All you need to do is print them and take them everywhere you go!
  • Be patient! It usually takes a month or so to see changes.
