Food For Thought: Dance Jobs

This is sort of a... random post I guess, but this is my blog and I'll post what I like! Anyways, these past two weeks I was lucky enough to work behind the scenes at a dance competition which to be honest wasn't really something I thought I'd ever do. I've been a dancer my whole life; danced in more recital than I can count, competed and have more trophies than there's room for, own more costumes than I could ever find use for. Being a dancer in college isn't really the same as being a dancer throughout elementary, middle, and high school. All of those years I was a competitive dance and now I'm more of a solid performer, honing in on my performance and technical skills. Neither is better, they're just different. But once I moved on to college, I'd figured that the competition part of my life was over, and while the competitive part is over, the being around the competitions surely is not.
