Dear Dish-It, I Want to Be a Dancer

Dear Dish-It,

I really want to be a back-up dancer, but I don't know what it takes. I have the moves - I just don't know where to go with them! Please help.

Dear brunetteboy87,

Although the odds of becoming a back-up dancer are probably better than becoming a pop star, you still have to realize that your chances are pretty slim. That being said, you shouldn't just give up hope. If you're not already enrolled in dance classes, you should find a class or two to join, pronto. Most back-up dancers have years of training and will be tough competition. If you are already in classes, why not talk to your teacher about where you can go for some auditions. There is also a site that seems to have a ton of great information, professional advice and lists of auditions all over the United States. Just click here to check it out. Most importantly remember that practice makes perfect. That means, don't give up if you don't get a job from your first (or 20th) audition. Good Luck!

So, ya gotta burnin' question? Need some love directions? Thinkin' 'bout stuff like depression, sex,how ya feel 'bout YOURSELF (that's called "self-esteem"), boyfriends, girlfriends, losin' old friends, bullyin' or peer pressure, but too scared to ask the parents? Don't be scared to .

    The loss of my grandad was horrible. I felt so sad at the time. I felt like i would never stop crying when my parents told me. It still makes me sad today...

    Tbh, your mom is kinda, you know, right about it. I mean, net is not as safe as we think it is. All I can tell you is that don't talk about her in front of your mom and don't give your friend any personal details about you.

    I am sorry for what you are going through. I feel that it is time for you to find new friends - true friends. Try finding friends with same interests as you. You'll have more things to talk about that way. I hope things get better with you and your friends.
