Dating websites for dancers
You gossipy little bunch But it’s true, dancers romantic lives are somewhat different from “civil people’s,” as I mentioned in the How-to-date-a-dancer post (which wasn’t really a good list on how to date a dancer, sorry ’bout that. As a natural consequence, lots of dancers seems to be dating other dancers.
As promised earlier, Rebecca King, dancer of Miami City Ballet and author of the Tendus under a Palm Tree, and I wanted to continue our interactive chats, and share some views around the romantic lives of dancers, the dating other dancers vs “normal people” pros and cons and – wait for it – finally give you some real pointers in what to expect, and how to handle, dating a dancer yourself.
One need a little room every once in a while, something that is ‘yours’ only.
R: Dancers always end up spending their time with other dancers.
Here comes the part you have all been waiting for, dear readers. Rebecca and I sat down and summarized a couple of typical situations: R: Be prepared to attend numerous parties; not only galas post-performances, but also dancer get-togethers. Actually, I think one of the things you need to do if you want to date a dancer for any longer period, is to start to care about dance.
This is where, for me, when dating a “normal person”, you get to meet their friends who are also “normal.” It can be so refreshing to meet new people and have conversations about something other than ballet.
Sometimes we allow ballet to consume our lives, and it is important to take a step back and enjoy some time away from it all. My absolutely closest friends are all “non-dancers”, and I think without them, I’d go nuts.
Of course you can’t just say, “I had the hardest class today.
The grande allegro the teacher gave with the saut de chats really killed my calves.” You have to translate. We did a lot of dancing with big jumps that made my legs tired.” H: I guess I’m biased here, as my girlfriend and I don’t seem to have any problems with being together becoming routine, for which I am very happy! One thing we are very good at is doing stuff separately at times.
