|Regular dancers on tumblr need to stop calling themselves 'ballerina'. Not every female dancer is a ballerina, and that is a fact. Ballerina is a rank, not a courtesy title. To be a ballerina, one must be a principal dancer with a world-class company. Little Suzy from Kalamazoo, Michigan who takes class at her local studio is not a ballerina, though the tumblr community will say she is. So annoying.|
I get where you’re coming from, when I’m not in a good mood I hate the fact that people get praised in pictures where actually so many flaws are shown. But when you think about it it’s actually amazing that the ballet community tells you this. They’re trying to be nice and compliment you and motivate you and really believe inyou. It’s nice to hear that whenou had a rough class and you’re thinking about quitting ballet. I think it’s a strength.
