-you spend all your time when your not dancing talking to anyone who will listen about dancing even if they actually arent listening and you are talking to yourself
-you get excited that a new leotard has been released
-you laugh because your friend says they have no social life and all she does is homework.

...you are wearing at least 3 layers of clothes at any given time, even in the midde of summer

...you've gotten yelled at for tapping your feet at your desk

...when you zone out in school you either practice your dances or choreograph new ones

...you can't go a day without having a conversation about dancing

...you have more dance shoes than regular shoes

...jeans are dressy because you are so used to wearing sweatpants

...you have bigger calf muscles than the football players at your school

...you set up your room to have the most space on your floor to dance

...you don't just want an ipod...you need one for dance

...when you go shopping for regular clothes, you make sure that they are something that can be used for dance too

people come to your house and think your carpet is made of bobbby-pins!

you know every single dance brand out there and when someone says that they got some special designer prom dress you have no idea what so ever of what they are talking about

school is a place of practice not a place of learning

one of your main arguments is that there is no way that soccer can be considered a sport if dance is not

some of the most commonly used words in your vocabulary are dance terms or inside jokes with dance friends

you are more interested in getting that certain place in a ballet than finding that perfect guy (or girl ( ; )


heheh i love this post

wow, this stuff is SO TRUE! And I thought I was the only weirdo who dances down empty hallways, it almost makes me feel normal.*gasps*
here are some of my own...
-When your at a friends house and unconciuosly start doing turns in their kitchen and they ask "What are you doing?", and look at you like your insane.

-When your on the bus in the morning, and everyone else is half-asleep, you unconciuosly began moving to the music on your c.d player, and once again everyone looks at you like your crazy.

- When you hear a football or soccer player complaining about how bad there musceles hurt and you just want to be like " YOUR musceles hurt, I'd LOVE to see you do a split, then we'll see how bad your musceles hurt."

- When you get into arguements with friends that are cheerleaders over which one is harder.

- When your family doesn't even ask when you bust out in random dance combinations anymore, because their so used to it.

- all your stories/anecdotes start with 'last night at rehearsal/class...'

- ...and normally continue with 'in the petit allegro...' and no-one has any idea what you're talking about!

Haha. So true.
You know you're a dancer when:
*You eat a salad instead of a cheeseburger.
*You're always telling people to put their shoulders back.
*You draw ballet shoes in Math Class.
*You right down your ballet corrections in LA.
*You multiply ballet shoes, not little stupid boxes.
*You're always trying to point your toes in your sneakers, and wonder why it doesnt work.
Hee hee. I like this.

-heels are comfortable because your arches are so strong.

-you're constantly stretching without noticing until you realize there are a half a dozen people around you, staring at you with their mouths agape.

-you can be found walking around on campus muttering to yourself "plie, releve, beat, pas de bourre and turn and turn and 5, 6, 7, 8

-when non dancers have archy feet, you tell them they need to go take dance and not waste the beauty of their feet.

-your friends are used to you breaking into a variation or routine randomly.

-when you're off fouetting in a corner, your friends are explaining to people who know you "Oh yeah, she always does that."

-other people's best achievements are good grades. your best achievements are getting a higher kick or better saut de chat.

-you know how to spell saut de chat.

-if you wake up without that burning feeling in all your muscles, you get a little confused and work extra hard in dance that evening.

-you never have time to talk to anyone because you're always rushing to dance.

-if you're like me and do theatre and dance, you always rush into rehearsal after dance and take off layers and layers of clothing and explain to everyone you needed to stay warm.

-your mom stops buying you sweatpants because eventually they all get cut into dance capris.

-whether you buy a pair of jeans or not all depends on whether you can grande battement in them.

-you do ankle rolls under your desk in class and people around you wonder where that clickity sound is coming from.

-your feet are gross. period.

-you have little upper body strength but you could choke a guy's head between your thighs.

-you procrasinate on your college papers by thinking up of you know you're a dancer if reasons.

I love this post!

You might be a dancer if:

1. You always remind everybody including you parents to have good posture.

2. Your room has ballet shoes and dance posters all over your walls.

3. Bad posture upsets you.

4. Bad dancing upsets you.

5. You know how to spell all of the ballet and french words and it upsets you when someone misspells them.

6. Your houseshoes are your old ballet shoes.

7. You spend your birthday money on dance supplies.

8. Your sister can't dance for fun because it upsets you.

9. You only wear loose comfy clothes.

10. You like to talk in french.

That was fun. :D

Amanda.

-when you spell the alphabet with your ankles in class

-when someone else tries to do a kick, you scoff and kick twice as high

-when you're at school and you show off how flexible you are every chance you get

-when all of your teachers automatically know you're a dancer

-when you get so excited that a new ballet production is coming to town, and no one else cares

*you really don't care if there isn't a dressing room open at the mall, it's not like the whole world hasn't seen you in a leo and tights before! (or a bra and underwear in the wings! (urgh i hate when you strip in the wings and next time your at a performance at the theatre realize the whole first three rows of seats saw you!)

*people come to your hase and ask why the carpet is made of bobby pins (actually happened! ha)

*you are ofended if you aren't corrected at least twice in an hour (or at least i am, it means the teacher wasn't paying atteintion to my dancing)

*your phone calls usually go like this
friend-hey wanna go to the movies friday
you-sorry i've got rehearsal
friend-k, how about saturday
you-sorry i've got a workshop
friend- watchya doin sunday?
you-you seriously want me to get up before i have class?
friend-well then, will you be at school monday?
you-no! you know it's the week before our big show, i've got a dress rehearsal
friend-well maybe next weekend
you-that would be fun, you shuld come to a show
friend-i'll see you this summer, *under her breathe* when you get your life back!

or am i the only one who has phone conversations that actually go like that?
