If you are a dancer you will totally understand the struggle and if you aren't you will probably be really surprised! Plus there was a lot of weird posts on the "dance" part of this site and I wanted to get more dancer info about there that isn't about strippers lol, so enjoy!
#1 GOING IN PUBLIC AFTER COMP OR RECITAL AND FEELING EMBARRASSED
As dancers we have to do crazy makeup, and the worst feeling is when you have to dodge stares in the grocery store because people are judging your dance clothes, makeup or stuff you're carrying. But at the same time it's a badge of pride that shows you're a fierce performer!
#2 YOUR FEET. THAT'S IT.
Dancers feet are the worst, we all know, and it means you often can't wear open toed shoes without someone looking at your feet like ????. But again, your feet showcase that you're a great dancer who works hard in class, and that's the best.
#3 WHEN YOU HAVE A MILLION QUICK CHANGES AND YOU FEEL BLESSED AND CURSED AT THE SAME TIME
We have all had quick changes in our schedule, but when you get all quick changes you can't help but feel happy because of it but also kind of annoyed that you're actually gonna have to be able to pull that off.
#4 HAVING COSTUMES WITH SEQUIN FABRIC IS THE ITCHIEST THING EVER
Having costumes with this satan sequin fabric is so painful, and so many tiny little scratches.
#5 WHEN YOU'RE IN CLASS AND THE TEACHER SAYS "ONE MORE TIME" FOR THE THIRD TIME
We've all had our dance teachers say "one more time" three or four times, it's the worst, so close to the end yet so much farther than you think.
#6 WHEN YOU PUT ON YOUR COSTUME SO THEN YOU CAN'T EAT SNACKS
We've all had the emotional struggle when you just out your costume on but then you really want a snack, but you know the rule "no eating in your costume" so you just cry internally.
#7 YOU TAP WHENEVER YOU CAN
Whenever a dancer's feet are idle, they tap dance, it's just a fact. Under the desk at school, standing in line, watching tv, anywhere and everywhere.
#8 YOU COUNT ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING IN 5, 6, 7, 8!
You can only count things in 5, 6, 7, 8, that is the only option.
#9 YOU ARE BILINGUAL IN "DANCE TEACHER LANGUAGE"
All of our dance teachers speak in their own unique languages that consist of boop's bop's, oo's etc. that we all learn to understand.
#10 YOU GET CHOREOGRAPHY STUCK IN YOUR HEAD ALL THE TIME
Other people get music stuck in their head, but we get choreo stuck in our head, and we have to do it to get rid of it.
BUT IN THE END WE LOVE IT SO MUCH!!
