Should probably intensely stretch before dance again
Help a new mom go back to ORock for the first time since having a baby and switching schools! I’m bringing it STRONGER THAN EVER!! OK, in all honesty, it’s been a rough year financially — rougher than we could have imagined (thank God for understanding parents Overdraft Protection) — I’d LOVE…Okay, so there are rewards I wasn’t able to list on the site because I chose to itemize funding for transparency:$5 — I will list you in an ooey-gooey appreciation post both @ peaceuptoesdown.tumblr.com and facebook.com/jlhaygood$10 — The above, plus a mention in an ooey-gooey video post with some fancy footwork to boot!$20 — All the above, plus a nice pillow made from the purple velvet and rainbow embroidered remnants of my original solo dress!

Just gonna leave this here at the top of my posts……
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.
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?
