Dance competitions are fun, rewarding—and completely exhausting. Here are the seven stages of surviving a competition day, to which we DEEPLY relate.
Gotta get that car packed up super early so you can make the competition's crack of dawn check-in time—and gotta bring ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING. You can never be too prepared.
No matter how tired you are, once you get onstage, it's time to be your absolute best self. SMIZE SMIZE SMIZE!
Sure, we might have to sneak those snacks in, since we're not technically supposed to eat in costume, but we need the nutrients!
There. Are. So. Many.
Because one of the best things about comps is that they're big dance-friend reunions, and all of these moments must be documented, obviously.
This stage basically never ends. How does the glitter get literally everywhere WE DO NOT UNDERSTAND.
