You know you're a dancer when:
-you constantly watch old recitals to memorize how the best dancers look.
-while waiting on the lunch line you're feet are constantly moving.
-you get pissed off for a year if your dance teacher dosen't pick you for a special dance/part
-when you're friends are over and then hear a weird song come on on your ipod, they just figure its your latest ballet song.
-instead of singing in the shower, you bring your radio in the bathroom and dance. {I know I do this!}
-you get in the top 5 in the school for stretching excersices
-when you don't make your dance company/show etc. you practice especially hard so you'll "show them"
-when just standing around, your feet move to one of the 5 positions.
^^I do this all the time. I was standing around just talking to some friends, and this guy was looking at our feet for some reason and was like "this was how you were standing" and was in 1st postition. I started laughing :P

**You are constantly on the internet watching YouTube videos of competition routines and girls on pointe scrutinizing every move they make are their technique so you can become a better dancer.

**You mom's friend remarks at dinner how you always have such nice posture and walk with poise and how her own daughter needs to take lessons from you!

**Your friends say "You even walk like a dancer" then you try to walk "normal" and they say "UGH! You STILL look like a dancer!"

**You have to recite a poem infront of the class and you stand in 5th position.

**You hate it when girls complain about how they had an hour and a half of softball practice and they are "so sore!" and you think to yourself "that nothing! I had 5 hours of dance last night! Today I can barely move and I'm not complaining!"

**Your friends use excuses like "I'm busy", "I have to wash my hair" and "My unlce's in town" to get out of dates, and their truth is questioned...you use "I have dance" and your never questioned once.

**You go to a basket ball game and a player trips. Everyone sees it as a trip, you see it as a trip that can be turned into some powerful and graceful leap for your next dance.

**In geometry you get called on to answer a question because your day dreaming. Later your friend asks what your day dreaming about and you simply reply "What do you think?"

+ You are perfectly comfortable in a skipy leotard and tights, but the thought of wearing a one-piece bathing suit in PE terrifies you. LOL.
+ The people around you in Science know what a Shirley Temple is, because when they heard you doing them at break-neck speed under your desk, you taught thwm how to it and tried not to throw a fit when it took an eternity to teach them a flap. (Not like that happened to me, or anything...=))

you might be a dancer if...
~you'd rather go to rehearsal than to the movies on a friday night (i'm guilty of this :) )
~your mom makes faces at your feet when you don't have shoes or socks on
~you spend hundreds of dollars a year on shoes alone
~you secretly laugh when sports players complain about their feet hurting, or being sore, because you know exactly how much worse it could be
~you have 3 homes: home home, the studio, and the theatre¢¾
~you feel completely comfortable in a leotard an tights, and have been known to wear them all day
~you have a tendency to always wear your hair up in something similar to a bun to school
~you never really get invited to places by school friends because they know you'll probably have dance. this has happened to me, and personally, I don't care- I'd rather be dancing!!!!

You might be a dancer if :
you stop in the middle of the street , change into you're ballet shoes and take a picture with the ballet poster on the side of the bus stop.

My friend and I did that yesterday after practice. EVERYONE was pretty much staring at us , but we didn't care lol.

^^I was just going to post that! But since you beat me to it...

You might be a dancer if you have 2 essay questions for a final exam, a final paper and one last assignment all due today, but you can't seem to buckle down and do them because SYTYCD reruns are on and you are WAY too distracted by it! AND if the reason you're assignments aren't done yet is because you have spent every free moment you have rehearsing/stretching at home, choreographing and learning a variation for competition!

Oh My Goodness. I totally love this list so far it's great.
*when in a school class you raise your hand and hold it in 5th until called on.
*you help first time dancers understand dance shoe makes and models by refering to car make and models to get them to understand the difference between them.
*fellow classmates who don't dance think you have crossed over to the "dark side" when you tell them you started dancing again after a year long break.
*your non-dancing friends, family, teachers and everyone else can find you at the studio.
*your caught reading dance magazines or compairing items in dance catalogs in school classes or on breaks durring work.
*you own just as many or more dance shoes then regular ones.

*You demonstrate dances down the school hallways
*Your parents have finally realize they will really only see you before school (if you don't have an early class, that is)
*You choreograph dances while in class at school, using your hands. The people around you have stopped thinking its weird.


So many apply to me, its crazy. I'm sorry if I've repeated any.

But one day in school, I was demonstrating a waltz while walking to French class. It was kind of surprising how many people didn't think it was weird.
