When Your Dance Teacher Videos Your Class

You've spent hours in the studio, strengthening and lengthening your muscles, learning complex choreography, and perfecting your dance moves. What felt awkward and difficult just a few months ago now feels as natural as breathing. You're starting to get the hang of this dance thing.

You're practicing a particularly fun bit of choreography and enjoying every moment of it. You feel light on your feet and one with the beat. Moving your body in such a graceful and elegant way makes you feel more beautiful than you've ever felt in your life, and you're absolutely sure you've just nailed that dance step you spent so much time learning. You're convinced that you look like John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever.

Yep, you're really feeling good about yourself right about now.

And then...

...your teacher decides to make a video...

...and she makes you watch it...

...and you realize...

...you don't look a thing like John Travolta.

In fact, you look more like Kelso from That Seventies Show.

At this point you realize you have a choice. You can either decide that you are not cut out to be a dancer, or you can decide to get back in the studio and practice until you do look like John Travolta.
