BENJI SCHWIMMER LAYS IT ALL ON THE LINE.
I have read to the point of nausea the massive amount of campaigning by competitive dancers who use Facebook posts to better their results by victimizing themselves, deliberately begging for sympathy from judges and the audience alike. It's degrading, disrespectful and potentially destructive to the system in which we receive applause, are scored and perceived by our fellow competitors. I encourage everyone to knock it off, stop the double meanings, innuendos, martyrdoms, competitive promotions and sympathy campaigns and just leave the dancing and competition where it should be - the 3 minutes from which you hit the floor to when you hit your ending mark. I encourage all to not buy into this sort of volatile and manipulative behavior by " like " ing, said statements and actions and stick to appreciating dance, hard work and the furthering of art and sport.
