As dancers, we work long, hard days in the studio and on the stage, spending hours upon hours stretching and strengthening. And nothing eases the pain of that constant grind like laughing at a (sometimes, painfully) relatable meme. So, Dance Spirit rounded up seven of the funniest dance meme accounts on Instagram.


For the bunheads: @memes.en.pointe

If you're a total bunhead looking for niche memes about Youth America Grand Prix variations, the ongoing debate between Russian Pointe vs. Grishko, and more, this account is for you.

For the trendy dancewear lover: @cloudandvictory

True, Cloud & Victory primarily makes dancewear. But they also make A+ memes, especially for dancers obsessed with staying on top of the latest trends.

For the perfect pas partner: @pas.de.ballet.memes

Partnering may be one of dance's great challenges (get me on my leg!), but at least now there are funny memes about it.

For the comp kid: @memeofdance

People who don't spend every weekend at a competition, or a convention, or in rehearsal for the next competition/convention just don't really get it, do they? Luckily, the fabulous minds behind this account relate to the #compstruggs.

For the corps de ballet all-star: @hardcorpsmemes

To my ladies holding the same "swan" pose for 64 counts of eight, this one goes out to you. Because you are hard corps.

For the self-deprecating dancer: @cool.dancer.memes

Every now and then, we all have classes where nothing seems to go right. And, if you want to have a good laugh about all those #studiofails, this is the account for you.

For the "​​Dance Spirit​​" lover: @dancespiritmagazine

Hey, we're not above a shameless plug! And especially not when we're plugging such quality content. You can count on us to keep you supplied with all the most relatable dance memes.

From "Dance Moms" to Complexions: Ballerina Kaeli Ware's Unconventional Path to Success

Take one look at Kaeli Ware's Instagram page and you'll be captivated. The elegant, impossibly long-limbed ballet dancer has over 110 thousand followers hooked on her every polished move. But the 19-year-old phenom isn't just a social media sensation. Having already conquered the competition scene and the world of dance reality TV, Ware recently joined Complexions Contemporary Ballet as a trainee. These days, she splits her time between NYC and Philadelphia, PA, where she continues to beef up her classical training at The Rock School for Dance Education.

She's not a traditional bunhead, and she's not a run-of-the-mill social influencer, either. Instead, Ware is creating her own hybrid career path—and it's taking her to impressive places.

Mandy Moore Puts Dance in the Spotlight in NBC's Newest Series, "Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist"

Imagine living in a real-life musical, where spontaneous song-and-dance breaks happen as often in the street as they do onstage. After a series of unusual events, every dancers' dream becomes an unexpected reality for computer coder Zoey Clarke (played by Jane Levy) in NBC's newest series, "Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist." Although at first her new powers catch Zoey off guard, when she learns to embrace them, she's able to connect with the world around her like never before.

And the best part? Every musical mashup puts incredible dancing front and center, thanks in large part to series choreographer and all around dance-for-the-screen extraordinaire, Mandy Moore. Dance Spirit chatted with Moore about choreographing for the dance-driven series, which returns to NBC with all-new episodes this Sunday, February 16 at 9/8c.
