Sunday and Varied

Sunday and Varied
Dancers tend to be masters of tunnel vision.  This is largely necessary, due to the demands of the art.  However, I have known dancers who, when asked what they do besides dance, give me a puzzled look.  Sometimes they will answer simply:  “Nothing.”
That is too much of a good thing.  Every dancer – every person, for that matter – needs to cultivate interests outside their main focus.  It can be anything.  But usually, for a dancer, other interests tend to lean toward other artistic areas, like painting or writing. 
Having varied interests tends to make a happier person, and different interests help one another, so each one gets better.
So start thinking about what you like to do, or what area you could delve into that isn’t dance.  You might find that your dance actually improves in the process!

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets:

Motivational Secret #16 
“Have varied interests.”
