I honestly could not picture my life without dance, and I feel like things will change once I start college next year…I just don’t want to give up on my dreams just because of the transition:(
It is 100% possible to go to school and work and train 5-6 days per week. I’m doing it…
Yah I definitely agree that its possible to have both! I am a full time student with a full course load and manage to still go to the gym and practice with a dance school near my University. If anything it has made me a better dancer because with limited time I have learned how to maximize the little time in class and in the studio I rent out for practice. Last year was actually my best year yet as I now hold a world medal spot and (coincidentally) my next majors are all in the city I school in. You just can’t let the idea of it holding you back, hold you back! The more you think about cliff jumping, the harder it is to jump. However, if you just go straight into the jump you find you can do things you thought too scary or difficult.
Ughhhh. Just had one where I was at worlds and I got stuck in my hotel in a room where I couldn’t get out. My competition wasn’t supposed to start until 11 and it ran for exactly an hour. So I got out of the room at 11 and was like ok I have an hour since I’m the last rotation I can do this. Im rushing to get all my stuff on and find my dress and everything and I go in this closet and my dress is in two pieces 😱😭
For some reason I have red soft shoes on and I have to find my black ones now since I have to borrow someone else’s dress. But I’m frantically running around looking for my dance things and the clock strikes noon.
Doesn’t sound too traumatic. But it was my last worlds and I missed it. I’m awake now and I’m still a little panicky 😰
