-You have trouble counting past eight
-You've realized that your closest friends are from your studio, because they just, get it
-Your friend who is fluent in French constantly yells at you for butchering the pronunciation of every French word you know from ballet
-You find yourself wearing warm-up shrugs you bought for dance to school
-You love that you can wear leopard print booty shorts to class and not get weird looks from other people
-You find yourself counting every sound as part of an eight-count, including, but not limited to: footsteps, thuds from basketballs being dribbled at a game your dance team is performing at, the taps from your fingers on your desk, etc.
-Wearing legwarmers never became "so 80s"
-You know what ballerina baldness is
-The desktop picture on your laptop is a shot of the Rockettes kickline or another dance-related image
-You know that Coke isn't just for drinking, and that hairspray has multiple uses
-You spent that Visa gift card from your birthday on new leotards from Discount Dance
-When you see a purse, the first thing that goes through your head is an analysis of whether or not it would work as a dance bag

And my others were taken...great minds think alike.

You know you're a dancer when:

- You call revision rehearsal

- You sign yourself up for every new class possible: even when you know you cant afford them

- You find it impossible to get a job because dance comes first and your hours are squiffy because of it!

Haha I love this thread :P

wow! I wouldn't say that I'm a dancer, just someone who goes to dance class but, some of these really do apply...
for example...
i tend to leap, and work on my turns while waiting for food to cook in the kitcken (the micorwave is REALLY good for spotting!)

-You'd much rather spend your day in ballet slippers then high heels

-When your sick and you stay in bed and can't stretch or practice, you start to feel tight in your body.

-You've practiced your dance routine in public and not even given it a second thought

- You have the "dancer crunchies" (What my friend in ballet class class calls the snaps and pops that happen in your joints sometimes. You guys know what I mean!)

- You sit down and everyone stares because your knees cracked so loudly
- you laugh at hockey players when they say they're sore

- you start doing warm ups or 1-2-3 when you get nervous

LOL I love the one about being able to dance in front of hundreds of people but getting scared to read something in front of the class! SO TUE!!!

You might be a dancer if...

-You get so mad whenever someone makes fun of dance.

-Even your body wash has something related to ballet on it. Seriously! My Bath & Body Works body wash says in the description, "inspired by the effortless grace and beauty of a master ballerina"... and I didn't know this until after I got it! LOL

-You can't go five minutes without thinking about dance.
