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 .

    I don't know you and I'm not exactly sure how you act, but being friendly is definitely the way to go. Don't change yourself for ANYBODY. Especially someone who you don't need to impress. Speaking of impressing, don't try, do. If you are telling a story and that happens to impress them than that's great! But don't go out of your way to try to make yourself look awesome because I'm sure you already are. Be yourself. But the most important thug now you can do is not try to make a million friends. Because personally I would rather have one AWESOME friend than a million ok friends. I hope this helped. :)

    Be yourself and most important of all, be kind. You will get great friends by doing so. Being popular doesn't always mean being nice; sometimes people tend to be rude and bossy to be "popular" and that isn't good. But if you participate or even start a group at school, at the library or somewhere important in the community (community service like the Rotary Club is a good way to start for kids and teens) can be a great way to meet friends and share your happiness.

You can write a note or a card to him. I'm sure he'll understand. And of course if needed see a doctor so that he'll know what to do to deal with those headaches.

    You won't want to be, it's exhausting. Just be happy the way you are and don't care about what others think or say about you.
