Negative Attitudes

Negative attitudes towards social media can result in negatives effects to a dancer. When dancers start looking at other dancers on social media who are better than them, they start to question their ability to dance. From a non-dancer’s perspective, when there are negative posts written about other dancers on social media, it can influence lack of self-esteem and motivation because of the negative comments being said. An interviewee, Erik Cavanaugh talks about how when he first went viral, he used to read all the comments on his videos. He used to feel down about himself and therefore question himself. However, he believes that there will be critics out there that don’t like what you do but there will be others who are inspired by you. Nowadays, he stops reading the comments in order not to go down the same path (Healey A., 2016).
