    I totally like Ashley's one better, the person is telling them to be confident and there sitting there saying, oh you eyebrows are to big or your body type is skinny so you need to be better. For beginners they should have had Kyle (Or I think that's there name).

    As dancers conisider critiques an honor. If the amazing accomplished teacher notices you and take time to give you a tip and help you, it shows they know you can be better which is an amazing accomplishment in itself.

    It's hard to find a balance between to nice and harsh truth. And as a dancer you need to be able to accept the harsh truth. If you use confidence it makes it easier and hides a lot of mistakes. I've learned more than one routine in three weeks. I've only learned one routine in a two week period and then I competed with a group I hadn't practiced with from 2 states away on stage.

    I’m a dancer myself and I think the girls did actually really awesome! They executed the dance choreo extremely well, and with such a short period of time for practicing. Most dancers have to perform 3 - 12 sets of choreo in 1 day. They also learned so much about themselves during the long hard worked month, I’m really proud!

    Jazzmyne, you always look beautiful. Yes, the others look beautiful in the skinny supermodel way, and they are pretty, but you are gorgeous too. You are funny, and interesting and witty and smart, and you are beautiful. The audience will be looking at you more, but you are the most beautiful and that’s why. The others are skinny and sexy, but you are my definition of beauty and I wish that I could be half as confident and beautiful as you.

    There are a lot of comments saying how rude they are and it’s not nice and blah blah blah, but if someone’s wants to make it in the industry these comments are gonna happen. Are they the nicest? No, but having someone yelling in your face telling you your not good enough is gonna help if you wanna be the best. You need to be pushed to succeed.

    I've been dancing since I was 6 in a room which was so tiny u couldn't do stuff... Learning how to dance in front of a computer watching films ahahah
    Got maybe total of 2-3 months of lessons and my teachers never were like that, they helped me without judging so harshly, now I learn on my own in the streets where my fav dancing style was born: streetdance.
    Please do not think all teachers are like that, most are nice!!!

    Dude I want to see the whole show, not having voices explaining how they got there!!
    I want to see the show and then have the people explain how they felt on stage,like they did for the Try Guys.
    I don't know if it is because you (dancers) didn't want us to see all of it (and that is your choice) but if it isn't, then I feel like it's missing something.

    I am a 11 year old professional dancer. I have preformed in the Nutcracker 4 times and we start training in July for the show in December. Dancing is so much harder then people think. I also take dance class 3 times a week for jazz, contemporary and ballet. Imagine being 11 and constantly being criticized and critiqued about your body and every single move that you make. So, next time you see a dancer and he/she is just working it up on that stage, you gotta think: Wow. Cause all that work that goes into that one or two shows is incredible. Please appreciate dancers and the amazing shows we put on. ❤️

    trust me, i understand this. i compete in dance, and the training is literally awful. the training we have before competition (we have to run laps and go over the same steps for hours before we get it right.) sometimes, we have panic attacks and we can’t walk the next day, but it’s all worth it. the dancing and competing is all about it being fun, and doing it for yourself. go buzzfeed

    I had a dance show when I was 10 and the rest of my group ditched me and I had to dance in front of thousands of people with no one I know there. One of the girls had a solo and my teacher had to make something up half an hour before I went on stage.

  • Journey/Angela Owens

    Being a professional dancer is hard, especially when u have no dance experienced. I am a dancer but not professional. I just do it for the fun of it. Professional dancers are amazing, but they are not perfect and they do make mistakes. Everyone one is different. They did amazing

    I’m younger, but there’s a league called PopWarner. In the league, there’s competitive cheer and dance. There’s practice Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and sometimes Wednesday. This is on top of school, and our performance during competition is usually 3 minutes long. This performance takes us weeks to learn. The problem is, while you’re competing, your natural instinct will compare yourself to anyone else who seems better in your mind. I love how they become confident in the end.
