dance confession

I hate that twerking has become so mainstream b/c everyone seems to have forgotten what twerking is & what it looks like. So, not only do white people get a pass for being semi mediocre but black children are sexualized in the name of it. When little black girls have an ounce of rhythm it’s “she shouldn’t be doing those moves” and “shouldn’t be out here twerking.” Let kids dance without sexualizing it. Most of the times they aren’t even twerking ppl just don’t like to see black girls happy.

never underestimate a dancer.

we are trained to live on endurance. you can always do better. ‘slack’ is not part of our vocabulary. you can’t cheat in conditioning. there are no second chances. there’s always one last leap left in you.

we have a few short minutes in which we perform a masterpiece that portrays an entire story, and we have to do it perfectly. the first try. we don’t have multiple innings or quarters, we don’t get to sit out for half the game, we don’t get to depend on anybody else. it’s all on us. we are minutes of pure, intense choreography,

yet we still aren’t classified as athletes?
