Here's a couple of my favorites. Add yours.


- Your dance teacher has set up a bedroom for you in the studio.


- You can't resist doing grand jetes down an empty hallway at the grocery aisle.


- You stand in fifth position while waiting in the lunch line.

Oh number 2 and 3 are both things I cannot resist!
-You always have your pointe shoes on you even thought its not your day for classes
-You walk in 1st position
-You practice your pirouettes when you are bored
-You spend all your time on DDN!

your brother/sister yells at you because you cant just walk...

you spend half your time doing sherly temples while waiting for someting

you spell "point" with an e and bar with two r's and an e

while most people listen to music and think about random stuff, you think about stuff like, "what kind of dance could i do tho this song" or, "it would look good if you did a chase peke sote right here"
THIS IS GREAT!

my favorite is-
- At Christmas when you hear the nutcracker at the mall you start to get butterflies in your stomach.
- You have a spare key to your dance studio.

8) you walk with your toes first unconciously

That's my favourite - when I was younger, my nmother thought there was something wrong with me because I didn't walk "properly". Haha!

- When everyone looks around wondering what tht noise is at school, and it is you practising your tap work under your seat.

- When you feel so much closer to anyone from dance than anywhere else because only they understand you.

- When you race home to tell your parents the exciting thing that happened at dance and it just makes your night, when you got that new step.

- People just call you the dancer. When they want to ask someone about you they say "you know the dancer".

- If dance is offered as a subject at your school, it is automatically the first one on your list.

- Even if you are really shy, if you meet another dancer you instantly have heaps to talk about.

- When any free choice projects and assignments you have for school have dance worked into them somehow.

- When you can't just walk around puddle you have to grande jete over them.

- When you have never even seen any of the popular TV shows because you are never home at that time.

- When you can never go out with your friends because you always have class or rehearsals.

-When you get bored talking about anything except your costumes or the new tough choreography

-You absolutely have no pair of socks without holes in the bottoms (you dance in your kitchen)

"you walk with your toes first unconciously" -- oh my, that's sooo true for me... :D especially when I'm barefoot - it just doesn't feel the way it should to walk heel first!

Anyway, to continue, two more from me:

- fashion is not about Gucci, Benetton or Morgan but Capezio, Grishko and Gaynor Minden;

- legwarmers are nicer accessories than jewellery;

I knew I was a dancer when I referred to my cousin's football practice as a rehearsal and halftime as intermission.

LOL!

You might be a dance if....

-You hum the song you are dancing to for the recital.

-You go to a dance camp for a week and dance for a total of 64 hours...the whole week!!!!

-You never get tired doing a whole fast paced ballet routine and then going into a very fast paced hip hop routine!!
:)
-You are willing to give up at least 24/7 a week to dance.
:)
-You don't go to a party...you go to dance class..(my sister went to a party and missed a very importanat class, she took a long time catching up to all the information has missed!) ;)
