It’s not all smiles and hearts and rainbows though – we can’t If you’ve ever dated a non-dancer, then you’ll realize that you can only talk to him/her before or after practice because it’s too hectic during, right?
** Let’s face it: dance teams take up so much of your time that your only other friends outside of your team are either your parents, your dog, or other dancers on other teams that you met that one time at that one party through that one friend and now you guys follow each other on Instagram and comment on each others’ photos saying, “LET’S HANG OUT SOON!

However, that is not going to stop all the other thirsty bitches in the dance community from eyeing your significant other.

You probably scored a hot commodity, and there will never be enough Gatorade to quench the thirst of the dance community. Because the community is so tight, if things get a little messy, don’t think that it’ll be a secret.

Everything in the dance community spreads faster than something that… **TEAMCEST NONUS (IT’S NOT A BONUS CAUSE IT’S LIKE A CON SO I DUB IT A NO-NUS) – IT’S HARD TO KEEP ANYTHING LOWKEY WHEN YOU’RE ON THE SAME TEAM. And it’s ‘long distance’ because he’s on a different team too?
Given that online relationships have brought people closer to each other today and has made the world a smaller place, like everything else, it too has its share of weaknesses.
