Dancers LOVE to post on Instagram. Instagram is a huge part of our lives, whether we like it or not (get it? "like"? hah!). We have to face the facts though – our posts are looking pretty similar these days. Sure, you think your photos are original, but as dancers in this #commUNITY, we all share common interests – it's inevitable that we have our own trends. As hot dog legs, pumpkin spice lattes, and pictures of bubble baths hashtagged "#metime" trend for non dancers, here are 10 Instatrends that you can find on a dancer's feed. Scroll to see!
From promoting your own team, your friend's team in the bay, your great aunt's workshop, or your ex boyfriend's project at the next big competition, there's always going to be room for that ONE flyer.

It's not about the trophy, but when your team does get one – you better post an epic photo with it!

Dancers love dabbling in other creative hobbies – photography being an increasingly popular one.We love both taking and being in photos.I mean, you can't be using janky pixelated iPhone photos for your workshop flyers!

Fashion bloggers beware, there's a new wave of DANCER fashion bloggers about to take over your sponsorships.
You know what I'm talking about.Usually, your 'action' shots don't exist because the camera person is taking pictures on stage right when you're blocked stage left for the entire set, or there's hair in your face, or you have a triple chin/half shut eyes/awkward facial expression/all of the above.

But you are finally graced with that ONE EXCELLENT ACTION SHOT from that one competition, and instead of immediately posting it as your new profile pic AND cover photo on Facebook and sending it to your mom/grandpa/great aunt/elementary school teacher, you keep that baby on file to whip out later for a #TBT.I like your strategy; keep doing what you're doing.
We eat. A lot. And we take great photos of our food like everyone on Instagram.But not basic #foodporn pics, nah.As dancers, we also understand the aesthetics of Instagram, and we know that using any of the filters on Insta will not be beneficial for the likes, so we have to pull out the VSCO cam.

Often accompanied by a team photo or perhaps an artsy, overhead shot of team gear, there's always going to be a long post about how much he/she loves the team, the #family.

This often happens after a long practice or after a last performance with the team or after banquet.#THEFEELS ARE SO REAL.We love seeing and double-tapping all your posts, so KEEP CALM AND VALENCIA FILTER ON!
