one time at practice we had to do six, break sixteen, six and when my teacher told us i was like “i’ll do it but i might throw up halfway through” and she said “that’s fine as long as you keep going”

My TC would have told us to try the whole thing but run in the other room to throw up hahahaha

My tc would bitch that we are complaining and she’s sick of it

My TC would check to make sure you’re actually puking and not just breathing

The Senior Lady Struggle is Real

  • TC: Now, cross.
  • TC: Cross more.
  • TC: No, MORE. Toes further apart!
  • Me: But...what about the diamond?
  • TC: No.
  • Me: But...isn't...isn't that the thing?
  • TC: No, no, that USED to be the thing. You dance very well for that, but NOW the thing is WAAAAAAAY overcrossing.
  • Me: Oh.
  • Me: *overcrosses*
  • Me: *falls over*

You sit at the restaurant with your young son, he says he is hungry.  You agree to get him dinner. You open up to the kids menu, your child is far to young for adult food. Chicken nugger stares at you from the page. You don’t understand. Your palms get sweaty and your son complains. He says he is hungry.  Your mind strains, searching for an answer in a world of sweer potato and french fried. You try to order the chicken nugger, but you cannot. The words cannot escape your lips. Your son is hungry, he complains. The waitress stares at you, her head a spinning chicken nugger, her arms swinging french fried. Your son cries the tears of a chicken nugger-less child. In your mind you scream. It is raining sweer potato now, you have french fried engraved on your left temple and you do not understand. Your son weeps in the corner, he is starving. Starving for the chicken nugger.

This honestly made me tear up. Imagining how great he must have felt that his planned worked and choosing that risk paid off.
I also feel like him and the model have such good chemistry, they’re always so kind and loving to one another.

Holy shit what did he do?? That’s rad as hell!

Since the runway was going to have simulated rain, he wanted to make the outfit become colorful because of it rather than deflect it. He sewed dye into the seams and once the rain hit it the dye ran! Very simple but super effective. He was one of the two winners of that challenge.

Absolutely brilliant. Holy shit.

Gavin Doherty 2k15 trend maybe

This is genius

My sweat will make my dress change color by the end of the first round

😂😂😂😂😂 ^

Hahaha

Unfortunately, there will always be someone out there who can do more than you—that’s a harsh reality that all dancers have to face… But rather than thinking “I’m a miserable failure because…” I try to deal with these feelings by asking myself how I can learn from what she’s achieving.
Next time you watch a video, try not to compare yourself to the students competing—they may have unusual natural abilities or better training opportunities than you do. Instead, use it as inspiration to focus on strengthening the quality of your own technique, and then build quantity from there.

OK, but why is Irish Dance the only place where wearing heels makes you manlier?
