  • 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.
  • Joanna M. - Yes, and it is great to have someone who cares about you getting better.
  • Alaina T. - Needed - no, getting constructive feedback in any field/job is needed. One should always be open to growth, receiving feedback, and open to new perspectives. A mentor can help the choreographer see things differently and ensure it isn't selfish.
