Guest temple_dancer Posted September 9, 2003 Report Share Posted September 9, 2003 I went to an open ballet class today at this place I haven't been to for months. When I walked into the room, there were two girls, about my age (20 something) who looked me up and down with a rather appraising look before turning back to their warming up. I realise that I'm not someone who has anywhere near perfect dancer's body, but it sure feels intimidating to be 'sized-up' on first appearance. My dancing friends here in Oz have also mentioned having experienced the same thing at some stage. My friends and I have wondered why some dancers do that. Is it that dancers develop a superiority complex as dancers, or is it just competition through and through? Anyone have any opinion or theory to offer? Quote Link to comment
