    Broke up with the boyfriend. He's been really angry ever since and keeps trying to blame this on my mental health and my age ("you're tearing your life apart/self sabotaging/ruining everything good, too young to realise what I'm doing, etc) So I guess his reaction lets me know that I made the...

    IDS vs. Ray Rose vs. Aida Latin Shoes

    Is anyone able to comment on the difference between the IDS elite and ultra slim heels? I used to dance in 3" elite and found them too hard to balance in as the heel was too far forward. I've switched to a 3" IDS heel and finding it too clunky/too far back. Now considering dropping down to a...

    Standard dancers - what's happening here?

    Seems very WDSF to me...haven't come across it in my local competition scene at all.

    Yup...he's well within his rights to dislike the amount of time I spend at dance, just as I have similar issues with gaming. And if that's the case, that's okay. I wouldn't really want to be spending any less time at dance to achieve the goals I've set myself.

    Yup that's for sure...I know that the amount of time I spend at dance is an issue, but it's not something that I want to change. I've finally got a partnership that's full of potential and I could be happy dancing for hours every day. But that means that I'm not home with boyf. Struggling to...

    Yeah we live together and our lease isn't up until April next year...I'll have some conversations with him next year and suggest maybe not signing another lease together.

    I guess they didn't bother me because I was 18...in our 6 years, I've finished two degrees, got a full time job, and continued to develop my dancing. He's...finished his undergrad and is still working part time at a supermarket and making/playing video games in his spare time. Not a lot of...

    Starting to have doubts about whether 6 year relationship with BF is the right thing for me long term...I'm dancing more and home less and he doesn't like that, but I'm happy at dance and I keep avoiding being home. Idk...lots of thinking and processing to do over the next few months. I'm also...

    What I Learned At My Last Comp

    New partnership is phenomenal and we have so much potential. Also that two anxious people in a partnership makes for a lot of nerves.

    Competition Hair

    Is there a trick to keeping hair for multiple days? I have a two day comp next year and I'm curious!

    Sprucing up my Standard gown - sewing questions!

    Across the whole back, or just the bottom bit?

    Sprucing up my Standard gown - sewing questions!

    The difficulty with the leotard as well is that this is the front of the dress: the mesh is a big PITA that's for sure.

    Sprucing up my Standard gown - sewing questions!

    I dreamed about this the other night and dream me thought about the leotard too!! My concern is then that the upper back "keyhole" would look weird and out of place because it's too small. I like the leotard that comes to a point...that's pretty cool.

    Sprucing up my Standard gown - sewing questions!

    Ok...borrowing a dress from a friend for upcoming comp with new boy. I test-wore it at the same sex comp recently and I've got a serious case of back fat going on!! I'd really like the focus to be on my dancing rather than the unique ways that my body folds when I shape...can anyone suggest some...
