Rehearsals can feel excruciatingly long—especially when there's a performance or competition coming up, and you're stuck in the studio for hours upon hours. But somehow, dancers always find a way to survive the grind. Here are the 7 stages we go through while toughing out a long rehearsal.
The Snacking Stage
Before rehearsal even starts, you're munching on something to help keep your stamina up. Because you know how this goes.
The Fidgeting Stage
You're an hour in, but barely anything has been accomplished? Time to fidget with your shoes, hair, etc—anything to distract you from the glacial pace.
The Clock-Checking Stage
How long has it been now? Let me just peep my phone real quick...
The Cracking-Every-Bone-in-Your-Body Stage
Extreme boredom ➡️ cracking literally everything, from your fingers to your back to your toes.
The Daydreaming-About-Your-Bed Stage
It is fully 10:30 pm and you and your broken body are fully ready to hit the hay.
The Power-Through-to-the-End Stage
There is—allegedly—only an hour left! If you go full-out and it's PERFECT, maybe you can get out earlier??
