Whether you're a teacher or a student, Thanksgiving is a good time to reflect on those who have helped you grow as a dancer—that instructor who helped you tackle something you didn't think you could do, that mentor who continues to offer you new ways of thinking and moving. For inspiration—and some fun reading over the holiday break—we invite you to revisit our Teacher's Wisdom column, in which we interviewed master teachers about their approach in the classroom. A common theme, you might find, is that teachers are often as grateful for their students as their students are for them.
