RANT - Being a fan of someone doesn’t mean attacking anyone who isn’t that someone
Honestly, if you are a fan of any dancer, don’t talk crap about another dancer to “defend” the dancer you like.
Do you seriously think ANY dancer likes it when people bully their friends/peers in their name!?
If you like a dancer, like the dancer.
Don’t use it as an excuse to insult anyone who isn’t that dancer.
Commenting “omg! You are so much better than ____! idk why people even think they are good!!1!!!” means nothing!
Instead of needlessly insulting that other person, you can simply compliment the person you like!
When a dancer has a solo, you should focus on THEM. Not someone who you believe isn’t as good as them.
So next time Sophia Lucia has a solo, don’t make comments about how other dancers suck compared to her. It isn’t about other dancers. It’s about Sophia.
(Sophia is an example, no hate)
And this goes the opposite way too.
If you watch a video of Maddie Ziegler, for example, don’t comment that Tate, or Avery, of Sophia, or whomever are better or would have done the dance better.
It doesn’t matter if you are right or not.
Because it isn’t about other dancers.
It’s about Maddie.
(Maddie is also an example)
I understanding that the dance world is competitive and comparisons are bound to happen; but commenting about a dancer who isn’t even relevant to whatever video it is you are watching, is unnecessary and disrespects all dancers involved.
