We are inundated with video after video of dancers of varying ages who are talented beyond belief. That can be to the detriment of dancers and parents of dancers who do not view themselves to be as “talented” as these social media dancers. Through the lens of social media, dance has become a spectacle. Because of this, there seems to be a facade of instant gratification and insane expectations surrounding the dance community. Parents of three year olds expect their children to be on pointe...crazy right?! Not only that, many parents these days think they are better dance educators than the teachers and try to tell them how to train their child! It’s insane!
