For my semester project, I created a blog centered around the media’s misconception of the dance world. I wrote posts attempting to break down several stereotypes that dancers have to deal with on a day to day basis. I also posted videos of pieces I find incredibly beautiful and important to the art, as well as post images of some of the most important names in the modern dance industry. I posted quotes that I felt really encompass what dance is and what makes it the beautiful art form that is held so dear by so many. I also reblogged a ton of beautiful images that I found showcased the dancer in a great light and showed the side that mainstream media often does not display. I tried to keep this blog as informative as possible, while reinforcing the fact that while I was attempting to break stereotypes, I did not want to start new ones. Every dancer is different, I just wanted to give the perception from a dancer who is far outside of mainstream medias ideas of what a dancer should be.
I hope you enjoy!
