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 .

    hey, i got a question, how would you get over a major mess-up, then try to act attractive, so you would still have a chance at maybe making a relationship with your crush.

    Ok, so how would you tell a crush you like them without them knowing it's you?

    I've been there when I was still in school. I don't personally have many friends now that I'm graduated, but that's more because the people here aren't worth being friends with. Off topic, my bad- Anyways, just try being a nice person. Sit with the other kid that's alone during lunch, find someone who needs someone to talk too, be open. I realize this can be difficult to do if you're shy, believe me, I've been there as well. Just remember that you need to stay yourself. I've lost friends because they turned out to be someone totally different than how they made themselves out to be. It's not worth it to pretend you're someone else. If it doesn't happen naturally after a little while, then you just have to keep in mind that it's your turn to put yourself out there. Remember that, "hey, I put myself out there and I made a friend, that's pretty cool." But, also remember that, "hey, I put myself out there and I didn't make a friend, that's pretty okay too." If you put yourself out there and someone doesn't accept it, then that's okay. It just means they weren't meant to be your friend and someone else will come along much better for you.
