thanks you so much for putting that post up. To many people do that and it kinda makes me mad...like 4 example this one gurl is in a over split and says this is my 1st time blah blah blah when it is obviously not their 1st time

Thanks for that... Actually I've quitted dancing because I feel so incompetent in my dance class. Some are professionals. But I now feel like going back again...

Awesome post, sometimes people need to be reminded that they are awesome whether they are a beginning dancer, or dancing "swan lake" in ABT. I think everyone on this site needed that.

Great post. I would like to add something to it.

It seems like here on dance.net, like you have said, you see a whole lot of putting down. And, like you said, it makes other people (like me) feel worse about themselves. But I also think that since more and more people are putting themselves down, if someone posts a photo and personally beleives that that photo looked as good or better than they normally do, it will encourage them to diss themselves anyway, because it will seem like bragging if they don't. So then it ends up like a snowball, and more and more people will start dissing themselves because more and more people are already dissing themselves and so on.

(I hope someone reads this post.) hehe

Yay> finally someone speaks up!

Thank you for posting that, it is a very true statement. You really do hurt yourself and others, even if you are trying to be modest. This is the internet> no need to be modest! If you feel as though you need to say something more negative about yourself, at least word it differently, like 'i have been working on this for such and such amount of time...' and look at the bright side! Always look on the bright side of life (whistle oo oo, ooo ooo, oo oo oo oo oo oooo> goo monty python fans!)

Anywho, thanks for posting!

Hear Hear! I couldn't agree more. What bothers me about people who say 'I'm bad at this' 'I don't ever look good', is that they're only seeking attention. They KNOW they look good, they KNOW they're so much better than you, and they only want to seek selfish reassurence from a person whom, in their particular discipline, they look down upon.
Take it from a girl who knows - all my thin, pretty, dancing friends have been doing it with me for years!

yeah that's a good point... i don't like people to complain that they have no oversplit etc. when i just got my splits... i think its ok to ask for advice rather than fishing for compliments

Very well written. Never put yourself down. Do have a stretch schedule and set aims that are able to be achieved. If it is contortion a small stretch done gently and often will get you there. Ian (mercedes_nz@yahoo.com)

Hiya
Thats a good point! I think quite a few people were thinking that. But I think some people have been doing this without realising, or not wanting to look like a show of or something. But now this has been drawn to attention maybe it will stop.

thanks for this really great post... it's really incouraging to people like me, who just started dancing... my flexability isn't even nearly close to what other people can do, so i know how it is to look at pictures and think "wow, i'd be happy with half of that - i must really suck"... so i really applaud you for encouraging people just to try in the first place... thanks again...

so true! your post should be required reading! The part about how trying for anything is great, regardless of flexibility, is especially inspiring to discouraged dancers. Great post!

I know im not the first person to say this but that was truly very inspiring. You must be one great dancer by putting this into practice.....WOW that is was so good. I think it truly helped all of us reflect on ourselves. I dont know if you do or dont have the best flexibility but all those things you believe are way more important that this. CONGRATS!

That is a great post!! You are absolutely right there, I couldn't agree with you more! I think that we should all stop looking at the 'hole in the doughnut' we should stop looking at the bad. We should actually spend all the energy we use on dissing ourselves on working to improve instead. Thanks DSL, you've inspired me to stop looking at the bad and never give up hope but to keep practicing. :)

I totally agree, as a starter with stretching one should only look at improvement. But it is important to have a goal. Just have in mind that the way to reach the goal is stretching, don't make stretching a goal of itself!
