Ballet to Business

Jordan Nicole

Many ballet dancers are afraid to imagine a future without the stage. Each week on Ballet to Business, Jordan Nicole interviews current and former ballet dancers who have created their own small businesses. Within each story, we talk about the hardships fought within the ballet industry, but also the incredible lessons learned along the way. Each guest shares what character traits ballet has instilled within them. These traits have set them up to not only brave, but furthermore succeed in life beyond the stage.

    Coping in Quarantine - 038


    I know MANY of us are feeling this loss right now! Performances we were looking forward to, cancelled. Roles we were had been hoping to experience, no longer happening. Student showcases, senior performances both in high school and college.. It is loss and it is so disappointing. I understand this disappointment. And I know from experience it can either breed a root of bitterness inside of you or it can serve as a reminder to keep you focused on the current day you’ve been given rather than becoming bitter about what would’ve been. So in today’s episode I’ll be sharing what these 5 stages of loss have felt like in my own life and how you can effectively cope through them.  And then afterward, I’ll be sharing how I’ve personally have been going through this season of quarantine.  - With all that's been lost, what we have been given is TIME. I needed not only time to create this podcast, but education. Join me in attending the Expand Online Summit for Artists May 4-8th to learn just how you can make your ideas into a reality online.

    Behind the Scenes of Podcasting - 030


    My Oh My.. it’s been a rough couple of weeks for me and I apologize for my delay in being able to produce an episode. I got the flu … and I could hardly believe it. Completely wiped me out and I’m just now starting to come out of hibernation. So thank you for your patience! Speaking of prouducing… and podcasting. This episode is a special one. I was honored to be invited on with Jayne and Kalena of On The Other Foot Podcast, and I’ll be sharing an interview we did together with you all today!  In this episode, we discuss the ins and outs of podcasting. Jayne & Kalena ask me about what inspired me to start Ballet to Business, how my guests and the knowledge I’ve gained from them have affected me, what some of the challenges I’ve faced with podcasting have been, and how podcasting has changed me as a person.   To listen to Part 2 of my interview with On The Other Foot on the topic of Injury, click here!   SHOWNOTES
