The misunderstood dance mum – Dance mums and I have always been on the same page, you’re one of the few groups beyond other creatives who get you can’t just plonk a girl in front of a camera and expect to rival a pinterest grade image, you’re the ones who ask me “how do you want her hair?” and come armed with costumes and hair spray. We’re both obsessed with chasing an ideal, so I get you, but this image is done from the perspective of someone who doesn’t get it and only sees your nitpicking & controlling side.
