This week everyone’s going to haunted houses, watching scary movies and playing murder-mystery games to get into the spooky spirit. Those things are all fine and dandy, but they’re not where the REAL terror is found for dance educators this season. No, no, for dance teachers looking for a real fright, the scariest things they’ll see all year are found inside the four walls of their dance classroom.
Check out this list of the Top 7 Spookiest Things You’ll Ever See In A Dance Class, and you won’t sleep for weeks!
Enjoy your terror!!!
1. Biscuit Feet
Ya… you know what we’re talking about. There is nothing more horrifying than those clunky, floppy feet.
2. Bubbled Marley
When the tape starts to come up and the floor starts to bubble or role, you know you’re in for a terrifying day of keeping dancers away from the damaged floor. The LAST thing you need is for someone to twist an ankle.
3. Late Students
When class time starts and three kids are missing 🤦♀️. If that’s not spooky, I don’t know what is!
4. Panties Under the Leotard
Who in their right mind would ever think this was a good idea? And yet…
5. Safety Pinned Pointe Shoe Ribbons
When a dancer’s ribbon pops off in class and they think it’s a good idea to grab a safety pin to hold it together and keep dancing, you may as well just take them to the ER now 🙄.
6. Missing Costume
How on earth does at least one dancer lose a costume every year? Cue the panic.
7. Double-booked Studio Space
Ugh! Where are you supposed to rehearse when you’re double-booked??? This is the stuff of nightmares.
