-You have less toenails than your friends do.
-Compared to other people, your feet look BAD.
-When you just randomly start dancing to any kind of music, even if it is not a song you can dance to.
-When you're nervous during a test at school, you start doing the "Shim Sham Shimmy".
-You quote "like people to see you're flexible.

You know your a dancer when....
1. You get in trouble for always dancing around the house
2. You walk with your toes first and in a turn-ou (lol that is me!! ;D)
"you walk with your toes first unconciously"

Of course, "you walk with your toes first unconciously" if you are a ballet dancer... Otherwise.... :)

When you can't speak a word of french but can fake it with ballet terminology.

When you have friends who make fun of you and call you 'penguin'

- your christmas stocking looks like a pointe shoe.

I saw one at the store a few years ago and I begged my mom to get it. It's so cute!

I love this! :D Another of my personal favorites is when sitting in a boring class or meeting you find yourself "dancing" under your chair or desk...my feet just never seem to stop...I even dance while I'm teaching my Kindergardeners! They've gotten used to it and now just tease me, "you're dancing again, Miss P".

-You spend all your class time drawing dance costumes and making up dances and then you fail (or close to)
-The only answer when your friends ask you to do something:
"I have dance" so eventually you pretty much become a social reject
-You tell the random people sitting beside you in class when you're starting choreo, what your costumes and songs are going to be and complain about your arches- they clearly don't care

-You come to school and spend all morning talking about what you did last night at dance class, even when everyone starts to completely ignore you.
-When anything remotely related to dance crops up in conversation, it gets you started on a huge story about something that happened to you at dancing.
-You can amaze your friends by speaking in French then claim you've never taken a french lesson in your life - just a ballet one!

Haha a lot of these are so true! Great list!

^ haha, ad.2, it's like:
someone: I really like that yellow decoration in the butique
me: yes! a wonderful colour! it reminds me on the tutus for the Vertiginous Thrill of Exactitude, you know, it's such a wonderful ballet! It...

random football (soccer) fan: ...but Molina saved this goal attempt.
me: Molina? ha, his name is so similar to Polina. you know, Polina Semionova, from Staatsballett Berlin. She is soooo perfect! She...

and so on and so forth... ;) For me it's even twice as bad cuz I also love figure skating. it's like... somebody: we could have ice-cream for dessert. me: that would be cool, oh, and BTW, Holiday on Ice is having a performance this week in our city...

you know your a dancer if-
--you do releves while drinking from the water fountain at school
--you peke and then push the door open when you straighten your leg
--you think the perfect place to stretch is by doing over splits off of the first shelf in your locker

- You intend to skip a college career-y seminar for an Irish dance competition.
- When in ROTC and instructed to walk a little on your toes, you walk on full releve, feet turned out. (I never did this, but my friend did!)
- You dance in P.E.
- Your friends routinely say to you, "Hey you should dance for us!"
- I once took a trip to a NASA base with my school, saw one of the workers doing one of my Irish dance school's hornpipes, and then finally met her at a competition a year after that. It was quite fun actually haha. /Me: Oh, wait! Do you work at NASA? Her: (She looked very scared) ...yeah... Me: My school took a trip there in May! I saw you dancing! Her: Oh! Oh my goodness yeah I guess it was me!/ Yeah it was fun lol we talked for a while until I had to run to do my last dance.
- Your friends know your dance schedule
- Your answering machine message on your cell phone says, "Since I'm obviously not here right now, I'm probably at dance."
- You constantly dance with your hands.
- The guys at your lunch table can dance last night's allegro combination with their hands, and pronounce it more or less correctly.
- You hate being sick because you don't get to dance!
- Your parents have to force you to stay home from dance when you are sick. "*cough* *cough* *wheeze* I'm fine I'm fine! Please, I *sneeze* wanna dance! I'm *cough* fine!"
These are so great! And so true lol. I always do chaines and grand jetes in the aisles of the grocery store lol.

since most of mine were already said...

*you have more clothes in your dance bag than closet
*your away message always has something to do with "at dance"

*you don't know what it's like to wake up without some pain

*you can you know your pointe shoe brand, name, size and width by heart

*your friends think it's AMAZING you can go to dance every night until 9:30 or later and still have time to do everything else

*can enlighten your french class with your knowledge of dance related words

*most of your sentences start with "this one time at dance..." or "last night at dance..." ect.

haha!

omg it is the worst habit but i can't stop talking about ti

some more of my favorites:
you don't dance for a week, and even your brother notices

you have fights with gymnasts about who works harder

your body cracks loud enough to stop social studies class but you don't hear it

and my all time favorite one:
you are well coordinated in dance class but trip over your own feet just walking

...when you go and pick something up and your back leg goes up to a penchee. When people try to push it down, it doesn't budge. Then people start asking "what's wrong with you? you're too skinny to be that strong.
