Good morning, 'afternoon, 'evening,
search on the Internet and find information about Pierre Dulaine. Watch him dancing, with your families. Then watch the film and focus on his method of teaching, his style, his communication. His ballroom dancing is a vehicle to change the lives of not only the young people who participate in his programs and classes, but also the lives of the teachers and parents who want to support these young people.
Take the Lead was released in 2006 and depicts Pierre Dulaine's efforts to utilize ballroom dancing to help NYC youth to regain a sense of self-respect, pride and elegance.
What is the meaning of the gentle command "Take the Lead"? What does it mean according to you?
"Don't be afraid of new things in life, you don't know when you turn round the corner what can happen, but if you take it in a positive way, you can make it positive.....You come to a place in your life where you want to give back to society. You come to a place where you need to do something. This has been the real, real journey of my life, the journey of giving". Pierre Dulaine
See you in class and don't forget, be the entrepreneur of your life, take the lead!
