Fun Friday and Music Creation

Fun Friday and Music Creation

The relationship between dance and music is obvious.  Watch any child listening to music and you will see them move to the rhythm. 

For dancers, the problem occurs when the concentration on technique gets in the way.  The focus is so extremely directed toward the proper execution and perfection of a step or steps that the music fades into the background, and sometimes is ignored completely.

It helps to remember this:  to an observer, it should appear that the dancer’s movements are creating the music.  It is as though the music is emanating from the dancer’s body and not from an outside source.  

So always keep in mind Secret # 7f:

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets:
Secret #7f:  
“The dancer should appear to be creating the music.”
