I totally agree. I know we are putting ourselves out there when we post a photo, and you leave yourself open to the criticism of other dancers.
We all rock and you do prove that by askign for help and advice!
I loved the post thank you!

You've made a very good point. Quite frankly, I've never looked at it this way, but I'm glad someone did. Now that you've brought it up, I can definitely see where some of this insecurity about being flexible comes from! People seem to think that in order to be a good dancer, it takes an extremely flexible person. This of course is helpful but there are other things that are equally important in dance and we shouldn't just forget about that.

Anyway, you've made a great point and I couldn't agree with you more. I don't think that people deliberately post those to make others feel bad, but it would be nice if there were less of them and the people who posted these were more aware not to.
GOOD POST!

You are so right and I agree with your comments. However I do have a different take on it as well. When someone who is flexible says I suck etc, perhaps they are just trying to be humble and not consciously trying to make anyone feel bad. Also, I kinda find it refreshing when someone who is flexible doesn't 'show-off' instead. It helps me to understand that flexibility doesn't come easy for anyone (or at least most people!)

I stopped for 8 years and started again with 30.
Meanwhile I got better than when I was young.
Still, everytime I fell that I'm not progressing. But that's where good friends come in: as they don't see me every day, they always notice progress.
So don't look at yourself, let the other's look.
If there are 5 inches missing, you are the only one to know, but the public still feels your performance is great.
