If someone were to ask you "what is it like to be a professional dancer?" you probably wouldn't know where to begin...
It's like a "you wouldn't get it unless you're in it" type of thing.
But the Mean Girls know what’s up! These Mean Girls memes about the #dancerlyfe will have you saying, “I know, right?!”
Like Boom! Squa-naNA, Zeegazüm KA, and weirdly enough, everyone gets it.
Everyone wants to copy it. No matter how ridic it actually looks.
After trying your best in something and wondering what the directors or choreographers are thinking.
But the color scheme is super specific and no one quite understands what shades of olive or salmon are acceptable.
Because they said "accessories are fine, as long as it's not gonna distract you from dancing."
They end up getting super nit-picky with costumes.
Your Facebook group becomes flooded with suggestions of where to buy things.
Even if you literally got your pants at Target on the way to the venue.
Even if it's soggy and gross from multiple showers, because #withdrawals.
Especially if you're getting a lot of front-stage time.
Thinking "Aw yeah, new profile pic."
Or girls – your hair just covers your entire face/body/existence.
Because when nothing else is open late, someone will suggest...
And everything is funny to you at 4-6 am even though you have class or work in 2 hours.
Why start the day with regular clothes if you're just gonna end up in dance clothes anyway?
You have to dress according to a theme each night. Great. 7 more mini costumes to worry about.
Evoking mad F.O.M.O. in the dancers that weren't there.
And FOMO about the rest of your lifebecause you're always dancing.(*replace "sick" with "I have rehearsal..")
And older dancers slightly envy their access to videos and training.
By posting their flyer, or assisting, or even just playing their music for them.
Selfie? Heart eyes emoji x 1000000.
Like "KILLED IT!" or "MURDER/MURK IT!" or "SLAY!!!"
We try to mush their names together. Or is that just me? Idk, but it's fun.
So when you finally do hear it, you're super proud. Especially if the rest of the class is still struggling.
From people who really don't know what they're talking about. So...
Are 99.9999999% guaranteed to be irrelevant anyways.
We're always the loudest, most obnoxious group trying to dance up on everyone else.
Time to write out an essay-status Facebook.
That more or less tells them to calm down because dance is fun.
So our hair makes our moves look super full-out and dramatic.
But use them in pieces – in an ironic way, so it's cool!
Hugging, taking pics, and trying to figure out where to eat. But we all secretly wanna go home cuz call time was at 6 am dammit.
Prepare for water-werks. Even from the ones you'd least expect to be crybabies.
And you realize...
Until you find out they dated 8 of your other dancer friends so you're like NAH.
So when someone's bringing negative vibes to a rehearsal, class, or event, we're just like.
You are. You are so humble. Please post about it some more.
But they really just want to share the love :)
So. Who else is itching to re-watch Mean Girls now?? If you do, watch out for more moments that remind you of what it's like to be a professional dancer.
