One thing that drivs me crazy at competitions, is when the judging is not fair and a studio does not get as much as they desserve just because there so much better then everbody else, and they dont want to give everything to that studio because of MONEY!!!!

MITTEN HANDS!! ahhhhh they drive me nuts! I think they look really bad... a friend of mine uses them ALL THE TIME and just doesn't relax those hands, what's up with the mitten hands?

over-used songs, waaaaay too many fouettes for no reason, too many tricks in a dance just to show off, when little girls dance slutty, when dancers smile big in a sad song, no emotion, no passion, the big open-mouth-wink-thing!

Haahaa...mitten hands. I never knew it had a name. :)

Those drive me insane too. Like my friend Stan always says "thumbs are fingers too. When I say put your fingers together, I mean your thumbs too!"

:D

I third the mitten hands!!! I mean, I have thumb sticking out issues sometimes, we like to call them diet coke hands because im addicted to diet coke and it looks like i have a diet coke can in my hand, but I just take my tension out in my thumbs sometimes, the rest of my hand is balletic, lol ;) The mitten hands is like a competition fad.....I hope it wears out someday ;) its not too perdy :P

I hate it when studios have only one fouette combo, and they use it in EVERY SINGLE DANCE! So where's the creativity?? Yeah maybe everyone has that one combo down pat, but come on! It's pretty obvious and gets boring to watch. BE CREATIVE!

O gosh, speaking of the little kids acting like professional prostitutes.....I even shudder when adults do that. But I was in the audience, waiting for my sisters jazz group to come on, and the dance before them.....omg. It was so awkward for everyone watching, and the adjudicator. Girls 13 and 14 danced to "My ass is like woah." No parts taken out. On the lyric "my sex is like woah" They slid their hands down their thighs. It was horrible!!! They were amazing dancers, until the ruined the preformance by bending over and petting themselves! I was absolutely disgusted!!!

Some things that drive me crazy about the whole competition thing is the rivalry. I mean I understand that we are all fighting for first place but sometimes girls can get out of hand and then the whole love of the sport is lost

1.) slippery stages aren't very fun, but they are managable
2.) hearing the same song used over and over again is miserable
3.) having to watch a tap routine with quads (or more), fourettes or any other type of turn. yes thank you you're turning on metal of course you can pull off 5 rotations, but it is tap, let me hear you tap please!
4.) over done production numbers. yes I've seen some cute ones like toy story or butterfly kisses, but when you bring in a tumble track to line the back of the stage for a 7 min. long acro production, please stop and register for a gymnastics competition not a dance competition

I don't mind fouettes, i actually really like them, but i hate when dances have moves that the dancers can't actually do, so they attempt it and look really bad. it's also messed when little kids do inappropriate moves.

It makes you really nervous when you are waiting for the trophies to be given out. The anticipation is horroble! But once you win you feel great!!! I also hate doing turns in competition but once you land the triple, it is all down hill from there but you feel great!!!

It absolutely bothers me when there's a number with a guy in it and the ajudicator says "It's so nice to see a guy dancing!"...um so what are we? Chop liver?

Over used songs...last year "My Immortal", "Toxic", "Me Against the music", and "bring me to life" were *SO* overused...it was number after number that they had the same song...ugh

Ajudicators who can't pronouce terms right...example: Fouettes become fortes...

Well-known studios have bigger dressing rooms and we're left with no room at all...I'm sorry but it's really annoying when you're running to the change room to do a quick change and there's no room and there's always someone in the way

Stage moms living through their daughters and yelling a snapping at them all the time. Then the girl snaps back, it's just a bad scene.

I think its good that dances include things beyond the level of the dancer a little, because it gives the dancer a chance to work on something they might not have mastered yet.

What does bug me are: Inappropriate dances by young kids. Its NOT cute, its disturbing!!!
Announcers who talk too much, and interview the dancers when you can tell they dont care what they say.
worst of all: Competitions that give golds to EVERY dance! This is stupid, the point fo competitions is to COMPETE, and if people are sore loosers they shouldnt be competing. I know my company isnt very good, and our dances should be getting bronzes or lower, yet we always get golds. it makes them loose their value, and we have no idea how we really did.

One thing that drives me nuts is when the parents of the kids from another studio, will talk all through their opponents dances and be so extremely rude!!!! Its so immature!

I cant stand all the little happy girls that talk 100 miles an hour leave that to cheerleaders. We are dancers we are stuck up and very classy we dont have time to talk we need to be thinking about our projection because everyone notices the team that walkes in and when there coah turns puts his/her bag down and every girl does excl. the same that is very very nice projection but I would not want to be with the team that comes in and gets in a circle and talks and looks supid!

I hate it when..

1.the judges aren't qualified to judge, or when your score sheets are written in pencil instead of pen...we had eraser marks once, and it looks REALLY shady.
2. When one studio enters 20 million dances in the same category and make up 3/4ths of the competition and each dance looks the same.
3. Skimpy costumes on little girls and older girls..eww..
4. A dance made up of trick after trick..it gets old
5. People who try to do things wayyyyyy above their level...you're supposed to showcase things that you're good at.
6. I hate rivals and snotty people.
haha I think thats it..Competition is suppposed to be fun. And you should not have to enter 15 dances in one category in order to win. 1 or 2 tries should be enough. We need to remember that these awards won't be important when going into the professional dance world.
Maile
Grrr...

Mitten Hands

About the Mitten Hands:

That's awesome that someone mentioned that. In my tap number, our teacher made us do those, only she called them barbie hands. I hated doing those hands...I thought they looked stupid.

Also...

I hate it when those little girls do those moves...and then they win! I wouldn't mind as much if they were disqualified or had a lot of points taken away...but they always win!

Things I hate

1) Overused songs...at one competition there was 3 "My Immortals" in a row
2) At one comeptition we were in the middle of a number and the judge was on her cell phone...which I'm sorry but that's so bs...how can u judge if ur on ur cell phone?? Also w/ the judging...I like when they have one person putting comments on a casette...it's really helpful..especially knowing they watched the whole thing and were not looking down writing comments
3) Bad setups...one comeptition...the first day they didn't have room to do the full floor so the dressing room was really small and the stage, well they had seats for people on the floor and there were mirrors all around..so hard for spotting...i mean it was a day for solos and duets/trios mainly, but still we need our space!!!!
