potsofpaint said: Any advice for a dancer starting to get burnt out? I've been dancing full time for 10 months now in a top club in Florida, it's slowed down for the summer and I think I'm starting to go through a bit of a depression. It's dramatically effecting my money. I've considered taking a break until winter and getting a regular hourly job, but when break down how many hours I would need to work weekly to get by, it makes me sick to my stomach. I'm not lazy, but I love the freedom dancing gives me.
Trust me darlin, I’m in the exact same boat.
My best advice, is to tone your dancing job down to part time and get an hourly job to fill the gaps.
The first time I got that kind of burnt out, I cut my dancing to about two days a week, and I had a part time grocery store cashier job.
This works for several reasons
- You are doing more work for less money. This makes you “appreciate” dancing
- There will be days that your hourly job makes you work, when you know you could’ve made really good money dancing that night. This also makes you want dancing.
- I had nights where I’d get out of my “day job” and go to work. I wouldnt get there until 10:30-11ish at night. I’d make $200 in under two hours. I made more money dancing because I was already in a work mindset, and because I felt like I had to prove I could make more in that small amount of time than I made working 6-8 hours at a job I didnt really like.,
Getting a part time day job, is exactly what I needed the first time I got burnt out. So, I would suggest trying it. Get something small, minimum wage. It really will show you just how much money you make dancing. Especially when that check shows up, after two weeks of work, and you’ve made less than ONE good night of dancing money.
Took about two months for me to hate my day job and love dancing again.
I hope this helps, I know it sounds shitty but it’s like a necessary evil.
Lots of love,
I fucking love her.
If you look at the fact that you have a roof over your head, food to eat, that you are young and beautiful and live in a peaceful land, then no, you have nothing to be sad about. But the fact is, we are not only a physical body, we have souls too, and sometimes our souls get sick. If you break a leg you don’t just say ‘I have no reason to have a broken leg’ and ignore it; you seek help. It’s the same when your soul gets hurt. Don’t apologize for being sad.
if someone ever calls u a mean name just respond “nah” like how do you even respond to that realistically
some person: hey asstown
i think my favourite part about this post is that out of all the mean names someone could realistically call you, they chose “asstown”
before you date a girl with a mental illness, remember: saying, “you’re beautiful” won’t balance the chemicals in her brain.
and don’t fucking say, “i’ll be here for you, no matter what,” if you don’t mean it.
don’t think you’re fixing her by saying, “i love you.” because you’re not
This needs more notes.
All of it, but mostly the bolded
