Today, I was teaching a special techniques class for ballet and was focusing on pirouettes. I was teaching a group of 8 year olds, and one student could do perfect triple turns one after the other. I still can't do them, and I've been dancing for 15 years. FML

Cant say I know if this is the case because I didnt see the comment, but particularly abrasive comments get blasted into the ether, rather than replaced with the moderated message, which is to say they get deleted.

Actually I would say "good teacher". Probably most dance and gymnastics teachers encounter situations where their students get to be better than them, I would think it was the whole point of teaching...

The way the FML is worded implies that she hasn't been teaching/training this group for a long period of time; it's as though the girl doing the pirouettes took her by surprise. ' p ' Having been dancing for 15 years and being still unable to do the pirouettes, I conclude CRAPPY TEACHER. :D

Gtfo of here.... I can tell you're an immature girl just by your grammar, unnecessary repetition of letters and exclamation points and question marks.
This is not a website for 12 year olds
Not to say that my grammar is perfect, but yours just sucks balls.
Yes... It sucks balls.
Also don't constantly blabber about stupid irrelevant shit.

Naturally, everyone here is being an asshole. I think that, for some people, it just comes more naturally than others. Don't let it hurt your self-confidence -- just keep practicing it and congratulate your student for doing well!

triples are so difficult! Don't fret that you can't do one. Everyone who is calling you a fat, bad teacher is an ass. Sometimes 8 year olds just can do stuff. It says that you taught the correct technique. She just put it to great use. Not everyone is built to know how to do a perfect triple without work.
