Reviews

This book is a must read for any aspiring dancer or Musical Theatre performer. It should be kept close at hand. It can be your guide, reference point, confidant and your closest ally, for it can be a lonely road out there with many potential pitfalls. This book gives you a heads up with no stone left un-turned
— Colin Charles - Agent, West End Performer, Prominent Teacher.
Having been around in this business for what seems like forever - I am totally impressed with the drive that Taira has demonstrated in producing this guide. That’s exactly in line with what she teaches you to do as well. Read it...digest it & keep your feet on the ground. Perfect prep for that first warm up
— Richard Ireson - Agent at Narrow Road Agency.
This beautifully presented gem of a book offers invaluable insights into the life of a dancer and the struggles one can face on their journey. The author has allowed herself to be vulnerable, open and honest when accounting her own experiences. She empowers, uplifts and encourages the reader to know they are supported with useful links, books, and knowledge that helps the reader connect to their own authentic self and reassures them they are not on their own. As an ex dancer I wish I had read this book when I was embarking on my journey, especially as I came out of training. She emphasizes belief in oneself and keeping a positive mindset. Rejection is hard to overcome for many of us and she effortlessly propels the reader through this challenging time.
An excellent read, friend and guide for all aspiring dancers.
— Nicky Davis - Ex Professional Dancer
The Pocket Guide For Dancers is an essential resource for recent graduates and emerging artists. It offers realistic and motivating exercises, useful tips and honest advice that will propel you in the right direction as you embark on your artistic journey. I wish I had something this useful when I first commenced my performing career.

On November 8th 2017 a new book, Pocket Guide for Dancers, was launched. It is available as an eBook and printed book written by UK dancer and choreographer, Taira Foo. Using her experience in the industry of almost two decades, Foo delves into all the subjects she wishes someone had guided her on when she started out in the dance industry as a teenager.

From building one’s image in an era where so much is digital, Pocket Guide for Dancers takes its readers, on a journey that covers online marketing; how to make connections; preparing for auditions; to handling rejection, in a way that is beneficial to one’s health and self-esteem.

A lot of research went into the pocket guide, Foo’s first book, as she wanted to put as much information at the tips of each dancer.

"Taira's book, Pocket Guide for Dancers,  is a must for professional dancers and all student dancers transitioning into the big wide world of professional dance.  If I had this book when I became a professional I would not have made so many mistakes, just as Taira mentioned.

Taira has knitted together a map for a transitional journey from college to a profession that eats up dancers and spits them out, as well as helping dancers to move on gracefully out of the profession, for whatever reason.  The Pocket Guide for Dancers  is a dancers' lifeline saving them from being one of the high percentage of those who drop out of the business, for lack of how to get an agent, what to wear at auditions, self-care etc.  A dancer is a business today, so following Taira's advice will help with this."


Taira, when you post this, if that's what you are going to do, let me know and I will share it with my followers.  I would be grateful if you would show my social media addresses under my review.

I cannot thank enough Taira Foo for all the advice given in “Pocket Guide for Dancers”. I’ve graduated in June and moved to London in September and believe me, it can be quite scary. However, I carried this book in my bag every day since I moved here, and I can honestly say that it has been my guide. This book gave me self-confidence, the correct guidelines, tips, and friendly words to help me in this journey. Reading this book was like a meditation and inspiration at the same time. Being a professional dancer is very challenging both physically and mentally, and now thanks to this book, I feel more prepared than ever to pursue my dream. I absolutely recommend this book to any dancer in the world!

-Francisca Mendo (Professional Dancer) 

‪Endlessly proud of my old friend Taira Foo for writing this useful pocket guide book for dancers entering the performing arts industry! It’s a great tool and will be most helpful for students and emerging artists around the world!‬
Congrats Foo... Loving your work!!!‬

-Zak Nemorin (Millennium Performing Arts)

I cannot recommend ‘Pocket Guide for Dancers’ enough! When leaving dance training and going into the ‘real dance world’ i didn’t know what to expect and i was almost lost in the sense of not knowing how and what to do. This book prepared me for a dance career and how to go about pursuing the dreams i had. Taira’s advice throughout the book is very helpful and also very genuine which has helped me take a step further into my dance career. I would recommend Pocket Guide for Dancers to anyone!
