To prevent these movements can be as simple as not doing the movements at all. Whilst these movements may look fun to try, in the long run you could injure yourself permanently and rule yourself out of a career in dance. In the long run, putting yourself at risk of injury is simply not worth it and you should put your career first before trying any risk movements that could end your career, especially before it even starts.
Social media is a very useful tool for things such as inspiration, health tips, costume ideas and sharing positive photos. Being able to follow your inspirations life and their lifestyle can become extremely self-motivating, especially for the dancers who feel they can’t make it. Social media can also be a negative tool for dancers who try to go above and beyond what their body is capable of (Healey A., 2016). Negative comments can be made about others who are just displaying videos of what a group of people share in common, this could lead to self-consciousness (Healey A., 2016). If you can ignore what people say about you and the stereotypes of dance, you will go far in your career and find that more people accept you for who you are. In conclusion, social media has both positive and negative effects on a dancer’s career. The most important thing is knowing how to use it in a positive manner rather than a negative.
