  • Is doing the splits an impressive party trick?

    Best answer: It wouldn’t impress me. Some people are born able to do them, others need to work on it for months and others can never do it based on their bone structure. It’s not a great accomplishment and certainly not all that impressive.

    I know this sounds crazy, but listen. I wanted to dance when I was much younger, but my parents held me back because that wasn't something they thought would be useful for me in the future. Following that in high school I tried joining the beginners dance class, but later found out it was full so I couldn't join. For the longest time I've just wanted to dance, and do what I wanted since a young age and even now. Next year is my last year in highschool and auditions for the dance team are in about a month and a half. Right now I have so much free time in the summer, and I want to learn how to dance. I am so willing to committing hours upon hours to learn. I just really want to make it and I feel like this is my last chance. Tips? Thoughts?

I graduated high school and didn’t continue dancing after, but I have a few expensive and nicely broken in pointe shoes that I’d love to work out in. Thoughts?

    Best answer: It is difficult. Some male dancers strap weights below their knees to gain strength during a leap. I don’t recommend it. You could get hurt. It just takes practice. Sun up, Sun down practice.

    Well I don’t know if anything to Major in. I’m officially a senior in high school and I’ve been trying not to put college last minute kind of thing so I thought try now but I don’t know what I want. I want to dance like it’s always been a interest to me but I can do turns like I could do some hip hop so I’ve been trying to find a good dance team for college. The problem is I don’t know where to look. When I look up best dance teams in college I find ones that are like REAL dance as in turns and leaps and even splits or it’s a Pom dance team which means it’s also cheerleader which means there’s going to be stunts and I can’t stunt. I’ve been trying to find a major but as dumb as this sound I don’t want a job that involves like sitting behind a desk or cutting animals or humans open. My mom thinks I’m pretty much stupid like I pretty much don’t want to do a job that involves work. I know dancing takes work but it’s fun and I would take classes to get better at dancing but that’s a lot of money and my family can’t afford it and I know by a fact they can’t afford it because that’s the reason I had to quit dancing. So please help and please don’t call me stupid or crazy because I already know that.

    I m 14 years old and Ive been in competitive dance this past year. I really love it and I have been getting really good but I wish I could do more classes. Right now I can only afford 3 performing classes and 2 non-performing. Since I ve started late I also want to do dance like tap and jazz so in my 4 years left I have before college I could get to the intermediate/advanced classes. I also wish I could do more because all the girls at the studio I have made friends with are super rich and in a bunch of classes so I feel left out. I know I m too young to get a real job but is there any way I can save up money to maybe pay myself? Or should I reapproach my mom about asking my grandparents, because she said I could ask them to help pay but I felt bad so I said no.

    I don't want an answer that is both. The type of dancing I like is ballet, contemporary, and contortion, so it's not really a both type of thing. I've been singing since I was about nine, but the type of singing that is popular right now is awful in my opinion. It lacks actual talent and all they're doing is screaming or breathing so hard into the mic that you can't understand them. I also feel like it's more of a rat race of “Who sings better” or “Who can get famous the fastest” rather than actually spreading live and joy through their music because all everyone sings about is broken love, cheating, sex, and drugs in the most boring, generic ways. On the other hand, I love dancing as well. It's always been so beautiful to me and I think that it is an actual talent to be able to convey a message to the audience rather than just doing a choreography. The problem is that I'm 15 now, so I think that it's too late to start taking up dance classes if I want to be as great as others, and dancing isn't as mainstream as singing is, so it's harder to make a career out of. Which one do I pick?

    Best answer: From the descriptions I would find a way to contact the group fitness manager or someone else who can do something about this. I think the context does matter as to whether some of the things said were appropriate or not depending on the nature of the class, the manner in which it was said and the nature of the relationship between the students and the instructor; but from the manner you describe it it does not seem appropriate.

    The thing is, while you may be scared of the repercussions if you complain, if you think or suspect the behaviour is abuse it is not just you who is being subjected to the behaviour but the whole class. It is particularly important to report this if some of the students he teaches are minors - if not in this setting, in other settings where he teaches. It is always better to be safe than sorry in regards to potentially abusive behaviour.

  • What should I know before my first ballet class?

    Best answer: My best advice is not to practice at home. That just engrains bad habits. The hardest thing for you will probably be doing pirouettes turned out, since jazz doesn't require turn out. That was a hard habit for me to break--I kept doing pirouettes straight like in jazz, instructors were constantly reminding me to turn out. I would suggest standing at the barre between two other dancers, that way no matter which side you start on, you'll have someone in front of you to follow along to. Pay close attention to your instructor, and try not to get frazzled if you don't understand a word they're saying. Don't feel bad when you get corrections--they help! If you're having trouble with something in particular, talk to your instructor after class if you can. Usually they'll have no problem explaining it to you. Also, go up to the instructor and introduce yourself before the first class. I did that to my first two instructors but not the third, then she asked a question that I had to raise my hand for (and I was the only one to raise my hand) and she was like "who tf are you?" and it did NOT set things off well. Introduce yourself, even if it feels silly. It's better than the alternative, I promise.
    Hope that helps! Good luck!
