In class, like in life, there are moments when you have to show yourself and the world what you’re made of.

Things stop being easy. All of a sudden it’s time to buckle down, grit your teeth, and get it done.

In these moments, there are no free rides, no knights on white horses, and no easy way out.

The 4th and 5th dance cardio songs in The Dancer’s Workout® masterclass “Second Chances” are a bit like that. Fortunately they are super-fun; but even so, there is no escaping the fact that when powering through the 4th and 5th dance cardio songs, you are actually smack-dab-in-the-middle of the 8th and 9th songs in this one-hour, 15-song class. You have been going for quite a while and you are tired.

Are you a quitter? No.

Remember what Dad said, “Winners never quit and quitters never win.” “You are tougher than you think.” “You can do this…”

Watch these girls kill it with sheer determination while reminding themselves, “Keep your shoulders down. Point your toes. Look pleasant. Breathe. Stay with the music. Don’t stop. You got this.”

Take a peek into Video 6 of our TDW Treasure Chest and give these girls a mental high-five for showing us what they’re made of during the final song in our six-song dance cardio arc.

See you in class!
