Listen, for those of us who stepped in shit and were in the right place at the right time with positions, we got lucky.
In reality, there is a world of hurt out there. Think about how depressed you were the first time you blew your account... That's the fear most of the world has right now with their life savings and retirement funds.
More importantly, people are actually worried about the health and safety of the people they love.
We didn't start the fire, and if bankers make money on bad events why not autists as well. I agree. Be safe, play the market.
Just don't fucking dance
Update: thanks everyone for the awards and shit. I put them in quarantine for 14 days before enjoying them
My parents have been divorced for 10 or so years, I am now 19 (F) my brother(16) and I have known our dads wife for 8 years now. We have grown up with her and I have a lot of fond memories of us doing stuff together because they couldn’t have kids.
My dad is 56, step mom is 38, and having a younger step mom was always fun for me. 3 years ago, they had their first child. It was a miracle since doctors told her she wouldn’t be able to get pregnant. She ended up getting pregnant again a year and a half ago and had another kid. They now have 2 boys who are 3 and like 6 months.
Of course, after the boys were born, things started changing with step mom. She may have not meant it on purpose but my brother and I both agreed how obvious her disinterest In us had become. She even asked my dad if we could have 2 versions of our Christmas cards, one of them having my brother and I in it and another with just my dad, step mom and 2 step brothers to go to step moms friends who don’t really know... keep reading on reddit ➡
I’m writing a story that takes place in a small town in Eastern Europe, loosely based on a story from my mom’s hometown. The main character’s 16-year-old sister is a ballerina, the most talented dancer this little town has ever had. Then she is injured badly enough that she is no longer able to dance ballet. She is devastated, but finds a new passion in her culture’s folk dance and joins a locally-famous folk dance troupe. This style of dance requires a lot of hops, leaps, and intricate footwork, but is a lot less demanding on the body than ballet is, requiring minimal flexibility and absolutely nothing en pointe.
The problem is, I don’t really know much about the technicalities of ballet. So, those of you who are more well-versed in this style of dance, what type of injury could make this storyline work?
I’ve never taken any dancing classes in my life before. I’m a 100% percent a newbie, even though I’ve always liked dancing on my own and I always feel like dancing. I have three options in my town that I quite like: modern dance, authentic jazz and boogie woogie. I am 20[F], I don’t have much physical strenght and, as I’ve already said, 100% new to dancing. What do you recommend I should go for?
I (31F) have a daughter that is 6 years old, she has a Self-stimulatory behavior where she flaps her fingers to get extra sensory input.She has been having problems with one of the girls (Bailey) since the beginning of the year. Thankfully it had never gotten physical, however, she has said nasty things to my daughter about her 'flapping' and genuinely makes my daughter feel like crap because of it. We have spoken with the teacher, principal and parents several times, but sadly nothing has happened.
I take my daughter to dance lessons every Thursday and almost 2 weeks ago they were getting their outfits for their first recital as well as pictures, however, if you were unable to attend the pictures that day, you had to pay out of pocket for the photographer to reshoot (minimum was 265$ ) not to mention trying to work with the other moms and dance studio if you wanted group photos done.
I went to go pick up my daughter from school, it was nice outside but she was wearing her hat and... keep reading on reddit ➡

Imagine buying DIS puts, hearing the news that Disney closed their parks, then seeing DIS blast up 11.67% to Pluto the next day.

This is big news in St. Louis. A young woman returned from Italy to Chicago and then took the Amtrak to St. Louis. She began to feel symptoms and called. She was tested for coronavirus. Her family was told by health officials last Thursday to self-quarantine for their good as well as the community.
Since then, the father went to a cafe and someone's home. The mom went to a restaurant, a grocery store, a gym, and a nail salon.
Most egregiously, the father took the daughter to a father-daughter dance at a fancy hotel. Several schools who had students who attended the same dance are now closed for decontamination and testing.
This family, who was repeatedly told by health officials to stay at home, took it upon themselves to possible infect countless people around the region because they didn't want to be inconvenienced.
Thankfully for them, their names have not been released. People in STL are furious about their disregard for public health.
On the 8th of March, i have an audition for Ludus Youth Dance Company. The audition is open to 14-18 year olds, but the company has allowed me to audition now, when i’m 13. So, that means i’m the youngest at the audition, and there are uni students. I’m really excited though! and i’ll keep you updated!! (it’s contemporary btw)
This might be a stupid question, but I'm very new to dancing!
I've studied many things in my life, but they have all been topics with lots of theory and not as much practical side. Think like philosophy, nutrition, psych, things like that. When I study these topics, I take notes which I can review later.
With dance, not so much. In fact in my own learning so far, no theory at all. While I'm sure there's lots I could learn about dance in theory, how do I learn dance moves efficiently? I'm learning moves from YouTube and I do a daily practice, but I have to go back and watch the videos every day, not because I forget each step, but because there's entire moves I've forgotten about.
Do dancers just remember them? Should I learn the names of each move and remember what each name means? halp yo!
“On October 26, 2016, a woman texted professional dancer Angie Barlow and asked her to perform at a private party, implying it would be a surprise for her boyfriend.
The sender did not provide a name, just an apartment address and a time to show up.
Angie, who performed in local Indianapolis clubs and occasionally did other events on the side, took the gig. The texter requested that Angie dress in black or red undergarments. Angie agreed.
At about 11:45 P.M. that night, Angie sent a Snapchat message to her roommate, Mona Jackson. It showed Angie smiling in what appeared to be an apartment bathroom, and stated:
”Doing a private party at this address just in case I go missing lol.”
That message turned out to be horribly prophetic. Angie Barlow was never heard from again.
When Angie didn’t come home the next day, Mona Jackson contacted Christina Kramer, Angie’s mother. Christina and her husband rushed from Muncie to Indianapolis to report Angie missing.

What is Hip Hop dance? I’d love to give advice and help others with their journey through this wonderful art we call “dancing.” However, I seriously don’t know what people mean when they say hip hop dance. Open to any resources and education :)
Hey guys. I would stay at home for at least 4 weeks. I am alone and boredom is killing me. I thought maybe dance can cheer me up and help me to release anxiety. I would be grateful if you can give me some advice to chose a solo dance style to learn and maybe a good youtube channel for learning how to dance. I obviously don't know anything in this field.Thanks
And there is this other thing with her trying to grind or making out - I gotta say the dancing I've learned from swing/latin/ballroom dances seem like they would not work well w/ this b/c of how much space is in between the two peple
By Latin, I mean like salsa/bachata
I need help finding out what kind of Latin dance goes with this song. It’s for a project and I need to be able to learn the dance so any reference videos or links would be helpful.
Any advice as far as what would be easiest to learn within 2-3 months and questions I should be asking? Im in the early stages of finding a studio and so many classes are offered it's a bit overwhelming.
Also, any YouTube recommendations for beginners that focus on having a partner and learning a new dance?

I got in early before the shitstorm hit. I was so fucking happy and was making good money. Today that all changed. I haven’t really had a talk with my parents about the whole situation and I decided to talk with my dad about it.
He told me all about what he and my mom were dealing with. They have lost thousands in their retirement and thousands more in their more casual investment accounts (-$6,000). Which is an incredible amount for them as they are in one of the worst paid professions, Education. He said that he has had trouble sleeping and cannot function as he used to. He is also terrified about what the virus can do as he has had lung and heart issues in the past.
The whole conversation put the situation in perspective for me and has partially ruined my excitement. I just wanted to share and let everybody know even more about what the average American is going through right now.
I like to dance in VR. But I'm on carpet, and go through too many socks trying to slide. Is there a decent affordable tile or locking slide floor? Or socks that will handle sliding on carpet all day? I have about a 7x7 area I have to dance in. Honestly just some slidey socks would be the best idea I'm guessing?
im tired and i wanna go home but i cant cuz my ride wants to stay till the end :/
Dance started for me when I was two years old, waiting for my sister to finish her music class with my mom at our cultural centre, standing with my nose pressed against the window to the dance studio. Two years later, finally being allowed, I started doing ballet.
It started small, just one hour a week, then gradually I started doing different styles, going up to two hours a week, and now I've hit my record: eight hours a week and six different styles, but ballet remains my favourite.
After this year I'll have to stop with most of my dance classes because I'll be going to university. In our end of the year show I'll be on stage seventeen times, which is almost half of the show, so I'm really excited and proud. I love how I notice I keep improving.
How many hours do you guys think I can continue doing when I go to university in a different city? I might have to change dance schools but I don't ever want to stop dancing...
Let me start this off by saying my dad passed away when I was 15. Him and my mother divorced when I was 6. I was very close to him.
When I was 16, my mother got with an amazing man. I'll call him John. John and I have sort of a father daughter relationship. Everyone knows me as his daughter, everyone knows him as my dad. He came into my life at a very difficult time in my life and he's supported me 100%, no questions asked.
Here is the problem tho. I am getting married. I asked John to walk me down the isle and he was beyond excited . Everyone has asked me if I intend on doing a father daughter dance and I kinda am? Except I want my oldest half brother to be the one to do the dance with me. Hes pretty much my dad's mini. They look the same, they act the same, and we are super close.
This was something my dad always talked about. He wanted that special dance with me. He even had the song picked out. I dont want to share that with John but I still want to do it in remembrance of my da... keep reading on reddit ➡
Man, you go to the country bar and EVERYBODY already knows the moves to all the songs! How do you learn them in the first place? Does everybody go to the same class? I kinda know copperhead road, cupid shuffle, and a few other things i learned from a lesson tonight. But like, how does everybody know the country dance moves to backstreet boys!? Get me on this train! Thanks.
This is a really long post, but if you have a few minutes I would really appreciate some opinions. Also if this doesn’t belong on this page I’ll take it down, but I would really, really appreciate some help right now.
So right now I’m sixteen, I’ve been dancing since I was four but I started at my current studio when I was six. I sing and dance at this studio, and everyone knows me. I’m one of the faces people think of when they think of the studio, except it’s not because I’m the best or in the competitive teams, it’s because I’m the plus size dancer. Now I’m not awful at dance, sure I don’t look like everyone else but I’ve received an award in 2017 from this studio for the age group above the one I was in at the time and I’ve also got a principals award and came first in dance class at my school last year (I go to a performing art school so it wasn’t exactly easy). I’m not the most technical but I’m creative and can link emotions to my dancing relatively well. Now onto the betraya... keep reading on reddit ➡
Choreo-based dance classes often involve learning a routine for about 45 min, followed by having students basically perform what they learned in smaller groups while the other students watch. However, I have experienced that while the choreo is understood and executed fine during the class in the big group, but once split up into smaller groups, I completely blank out on the routine. See, it's one thing if I didn't get the routine or struggled while learning. But to do it fine and then BLANK OUT completely and stand there like I have no idea what's going on is not an accurate reflection of what I learned. This is more and more discouraging every time. Why does this happen and how have you dealt with something like this happening (if it has)?
Thank you in advance for your thoughts 🙏🏽
I would like to ask this community, how should a dance school act in this situation?
