We asked some of #STEEZYNation what their most embarrassing experience was as a dancer. Read their stories and be glad it didn't happen to you! (unless... it did).

That's Whack, Son

Juan (@JeiPortem)

It was around 11 am during summer vacation and I thought my mom had left for work. I decided to try whacking for the first time and then mom caught me right when I was starting to get it. Sadly, she couldn't handle the amount of sass in the room...

When The Beat Drops

Vin (@danivantan)

I was walking down a street once (earphones on) while listening to a really good song I just discovered and right at the climatic part of the song, I couldn't help do a hit with semi extended arms and I startled the two people walking towards me. So yeah...

Be Car-ful Where You Dance

Evan (@evanczhou)

I was at a stop light in my car and was going OFF to some song. Like 2 min later as I'm driving down the street I get a text asking "was that you dancing in a silver Toyota?"

Feelin' Myself

David (@davidsuarezbc)

I was dancing to some R&B music in my room and you know how some of those songs are lol. I was just practicing and I as I was getting into it, my mom walks in... I just froze and closed my eyes.

Werking Overtime

Jonathan (@jonreyesofficial)

Sometimes, I'd practice some choreo while at work. Eventually some of my coworkers caught my tutting at my desk. One time, my supervisor noticed and asked me to freestyle in front of our manager.

Kickstarter Campaign

Jake (@_jakegrey_)

I was practicing on the street with some friends, and one of the moves was a high roundabout kick, and I nearly took someone's head off. Turned out that someone was the choreographer from the class earlier, who not only called me out on the street for nearly kicking him in the face, but then pointed out that I was supposed to be using the other leg T_T.

Boogie Monster

Eric (@erictorreswashere)

I was performing with Prototypes and during one of the pieces I had a booger hanging from my nose which eventually fell onto my cheek and instead of being a professional, I stopped doing the choreo and picked my nose on stage and then when I realized what I was doing, I continued to dance after rubbing the booger onto my pants.

A Different Kind Of Sh*tking

Krenz (@ayekrenz)

I went too full out during a performance and poo'd a little

Bare With Me

Brianna (@briannapeavey)

Forgetting my entire solo when I was 8... and having my top fall down on stage every competition for the same dance...

Gas Station

Kase (@kassieyeung)

farting while doing those dreaded sit-ups ;)

Slip n' Sly

Aaron (@spy)

Once when I was in rehearsal, my nose was really runny because of allergies. When we ran the set there was a moment in opener where there was alot of level changes and momentum happening. Then out of nowhere a giant loogey flew from my nasal cavity, I saw it since my upper body was going down while it happened, and splat right on the floor. Then after the set someone slipped and was all like "why is the floor wet?" and I never confessed.

Heaven Only Nose

Christian (@therealslimcristian)

so one time I was dancing in my room to a really feelsy song (I forgot what song it was, I think it was Heaven Only Knows by Towkio) and I did this one move where I crunch on one foot and I lifted my knee up really high and kneed myself in the nose. my nose wouldn't stop bleeding for a good 20 minutes LOL.


Angela (@)

I was having a heart to heart with the team and I was bawling my eyes out. During my speech I said "pussy" instead of pushing......#fobmoment


Henry (@)

Whenever I say good job to someone at a competition and they haven't performed yet ????...
