The Day My Dance Career Spiraled Out of Control

Photo taken circa 1993.

I wore this costume that year to school as a last minute Halloween costume.

I cried the whole day from embarrassment.  Everyone thought I was “Baby Bop” from the children’s show Barney.

I could not have my 7-year-old peers thinking I associated myself with Barney. I felt I was a year too old to be liking such juvenile dinosauric characters.

I denied being Baby Bop.

“I’m a dancing dinosaur!” I responded to classmates who asked if I was Baby Bop.

Looking at it now, I understand where they were coming from.
