How GeNienne Samuels Prepares Professional Dancers for Life On and Off the Sidelines

When you have the passion and drive to succeed in doing what you love but you don’t know where to start or you keep hearing “no”, sometimes you need a little help to keep pushing forward. Whether dancers (or “Lovelies” and “Gents,” as we call them) come to us feeling nervous, frustrated, or unprepared, Sideline Prep can arm them with all the tools they need to feel ready, polished, and confident to “Go Pro”. 

Our goal is for each dancer to succeed in their full-time professions or studies, yet feel confident enough in themselves personally to pursue a BHAG (Big Hairy Audacious Goal), like becoming a professional cheerleader. The methods we use to prepare our clients with physical, mental, and emotional training for life, on and off the field, can help anyone prepare for big life opportunities, too.

Pros Make the Plan Perfect

A common reason dancers fail is that they do not understand how to prepare for auditions at the professional level. Sideline Prep features a dedicated team of coaches made from current and former professional and semi-professional cheerleaders with decades of combined experience performing on the sidelines. Our P.R.E.P. Model™ (Plan, React, Evaluate, Perform) has been tested and refined throughout the years resulting in techniques and strategies to prepare ladies and men for college and pro-level prep classes and auditions and what to expect once performers get on the field.

The first P, or Plan, begins with a personalized assessment and feedback to understand what steps you need to follow to launch your successful career. Together, with an Accountability Coach, we craft a customized plan of action with due dates to keep you focused and motivated. We identify your strengths and opportunities for improvement then map out specific actions to take to improve in each area of the audition process to ensure you’re prepared.  

Next, we add the actions to your schedule to ensure timely completion before prep classes, audition dates, and application deadlines. We’ll also add prep class dates, workshops, and dance classes to your schedule too. Creating a strategic, action plan is KEY to being properly prepared for auditions, and anything else in life!

Pro-Level Requires Pro Action

After you have a plan in place, next it is time to R- React to that plan. You must take action. A dream will remain a dream if you do not put any focused action behind it. It’s not enough to just have the knowledge. You have to apply the knowledge by taking action. 

It may feel overwhelming at first but focus on one action at a time. Keep your plan of action in a place where you can see it each day to remind you of the tasks you need to work on and complete. We recommend partnering with another one of our Gents/Lovelies-in-training, or friends and family, to help keep each other on track and hold each other accountable.

During the React Phase of the preparation process, we work with each person to make sure they are implementing their personalized plan by the due dates; receiving feedback along the way.  Which takes us to the “E” in our P.R.E.P Model.

Measure What Matters

E is for Evaluate! We understand that venturing into something new likely means you “don’t know what you don’t know.” So we do not want our clients to implement incorrectly. So we are there to guide them and provide feedback every single step of the way.  During the planning process, we work with our clients to set and determine measures of success for each improvement area. It’s important to have data and metrics so that each person knows the progress that they are making or not making.

We are constantly evaluating your progress through video feedback, mock auditions, mock interviews, one on one sessions, live dance classes, etc. If you are not getting the results that you desire, we will go back to the plan and course correct, adjust the plan, add additional accountability, etc. to ensure success.

Review and measure your progress from your plan of action. Which items have you excelled in, and what things do you still need to work on and improve? Being honest with your progress will help you identify issues and maximize your chances of success. Remember, you’re always a work in progress, so if a new opportunity for improvement arises throughout the process, add it to your plan of action!

Give it Your All

The final P is the best step of all: Perform! Start performing in prep classes and auditions, utilizing the tools we’ve provided to help you shine. Give it 110% but don’t forget to have fun out there! Your passion will show and might give you that extra edge to beat out the competition. 

Improvement from the Inside Out

Your health and physical appearance need to be in peak shape in order to succeed on the next level. We’ll help our Lovelies and Genat craft a healthy eating regimen and maintain consistent workout routines to keep your body ready for peak performance. We also focus on hair, nails, style, and makeup tutorials so that you can meet and exceed the visual standards on the professional level.

It is crucial to document what lessons you learn and your individual experiences during the journey through life as well as our programs. From research of the profession, prep work, and everything you need to work on and improve, reviewing notes will help keep you on track. More than that, they’re a great way to reflect on your achievements and recognize the fruits of your dedication. 

Most importantly, believe in yourself. You already have what it takes to be the complete package. We are helping you change your mindset to think positively and present the best you with skills that transcend beyond an audition. We can’t wait to watch you grow and evolve as a woman and enhance your skills, so you are prepared to succeed on and off the field.
