Why you left backup dancing to teach a workout class based on a 20 year old out-dated fad, you'll never know, but the world of dance moves in mysterious ways.

4) Pop 'n Lock Performer
It's taken you a while to perfect your popping, but you've been a natural locker since birth. Now it's time to bring the two together. Keep in time, hit the streets, the clubs, the art shows, anywhere you can show your stuff. Just remember to pop then lock, cause lockin' then poppin' is just as bad as frontin', which is almost as bad as stackin' on stage. S M T W T F S Body 3

Remember when you were the dancer standing with 8 other dancers, behind that one dancer, who was standing behind all the famous people? Well, those days are long gone.

6) Interpretive Dancer
There are many interpretive dancers who are very famous in the interpretive dancing community. Like that girl that does the one about the willow tree, and that other guy who pretends he's ribbons blowing on the breeze. Sometimes it can be difficult to interpret what a dancer is doing, but since it's pretty much all up to interpretation anyways who's to say you aren't really really good? S M T W T F S Body 4

7) Tap Dancer
No one laughs at tap dancers, they laugh with them, and with the whole stomp and smash crazes going on the demand for tap dancers is at an all time high. Top hat. Check. Cane. Check. Mock sequined half tux with tails. Check. Trashcan lids, drumsticks, empty paint cans, and faux graffitied concrete wall sections are all optional, but entirely more trendy. Bring the noise, also bring a decent amount of funk, and don't forget the jazz hands. S M T W T F S Body 5

8) Ballroom Dancer
Now's your time to prove your technical proficiency to the dancing world. Ballroom dancing is so technical that almost all forms of artistic expression have been removed, luckily all fashion sense has been removed as well. So, find the gaudiest outfit you can, slick back your hair, plaster a smile on your face, and let your feet do the talking while your competitors get to walking. S M T W T F S Body 6

9) Flamenco Master
You've nearly made it. You've blown away all the competition in ballroom, and have risen to the rank of master of the dance! You now perform to sold out crowds of adoring fans. Agents are talking to you about perfume and clothing lines, and you've personally brought flamenco back to the masses. Keep you eyes on the prize, don't forget your roots, and focus on your art. Nobody likes a sell out, well, except all the people you are selling out to, and they tend to be able to afford concert tickets... S M T W T F S Body 7

10) World Class Ballet Dancer
You are now the pinnacle of dance; the ultimate combination of technical and artistic prowess. So what if half of the audience is asleep during every performance? You are an artist, and art for art's sake is just as important as art for the masses. You now dance for you and you alone, a fallen angel swirling majestically in a sea of frozen honey and swan down. You are nature. You are magic. You are light and dark and steel and softness, the embodiment of the human form... in tights. S M T W T F S Body 9
