How old are you? In the icon you use I would have thought you to be around 15-17.

When I was in choir for several years two girls always got the solo's. Them auditioning was basically a formality. It didn't matter how many years went by, what we where doing, what the song was, we all knew to not even BOTHER auditioning. It really got fucking annoying and we all started to kind of resent the two girls even though it was their fault.

I finally auditioned and though I didn't get a SOLO I was 5th in a small group of 4 other girls and I lead the group in the performance so at least I have that much dignity >>'

I love how part of my job is now looking up and printing out recipes for my boss and other employees while they sit and watch The Chew, because it "takes too long" for them to do it on their own.

Fooled me! You seem to be a lovely,nicely spoken 14 year old that's for sure. Or at least better spoken then some adults 'round these parts

I can imagine why you're peeved, you have quite a few years ahead of them and it's unfortunate that you're age is putting you at a disadvantage :/ Your instructor doesn't seem to be particularly proficient at her job..


What form of dance do you do?I think I missed it somewhere O_<

Thanks
Yeah the only reason I stick around at this studio is because she has trained professionals and could help me become a professional as well

My main form of dance is acrobatic and ballet but I also do lyrical, jazz, and contemporary

Dang girl, you're rocking that.

I took ballet, and tap very briefly then I was like "LOL GYMNASTICS".

Then I quit that too >>' I was a fickle child and my interest couldn't be held long. I excelled at soccer because I got away with kicking people in the crotch with a soccer ball.

Hahaha thanks! Im always teased because I never do sports and Im just like "Uhm helllllo? Dance? I do just as much work as you!"
I tried soccer in 5th grade, as soon as I twisted my ankle I was like "NOPE" haha.
I joined gymnastic's when I was 5 for the pure reason of my acro dancing. But as I got older it also helped my with balance for ballet.
As in my favorite movie 'Stick It' they say "Gymnastics tells you no. All day long. It mocks you over and over again. Telling you you're an idiot. That you're crazy. If you like running full-speed towards a stationary object, vault's for you. If you like pealing pieces of skin the size of quarters of your hands... bars is for you. Because the only thing more fun then rips, is when your rips get rips. It's super sexy. And floor, are you serious, I mean who doesn't want to parade around in a leotard getting wedgies and doing dorky choreography? It's delicious. If you like falling, then gymnastics is thee sport for you! You get to fall on your face, your ass, your back, your knees, and your pride! It's a good thing I didn't like falling... I LOVED IT!"
Thats my favorite quote of all time

I was in gymnastics when I was younger so I know all about how painful getting rips from the bars was. Even more painful, putting that New-Skin liquid bandage stuff on them. THAT SHIT BURNS!!

I guess you got rips even with grips/handguards on?

.....*tries to not become too fearful of injury since she's hoping to start gymnastics for the time in her life this summer and rocked some impressive bruises and pulled muscles in jiujitsu for two years...*

Oh yeah. I do atleast. Rips on rips, and then calluses...oh god the calluses.....But only if you are truly dedicated will they get horrid. After they toughen up, it will be less painful.

Grips minimize but don't completely eliminate injuries caused by friction with the bars.

Yeah. I think I'll end up staying away from uneven bars anyway, myself. I have utter crap for upper body strength. I could never even do things like monkey bars or chin-ups when I was a kid and I still don't think I can. But jiujitsu taught me that I can jump off/launch over things surprisingly well and with decent air-time (and in ballet, I'm also a jumper). Meaning, I think I'll find my talent on vaulting... now that they use tables instead of those narrow horses too, I'm not even close to freaked out by that apparatus.

Well like i quoted earlier "if you like running full-speed towards a stationary object, vault's for you."
I think you might also be good at acro balance beams and possibly floor
