Sunday Gift

Sunday Gift
To continue with our Sunday theme of performance hints, comes this one:  Remember that each performance should be viewed as a gift you are giving to the audience.  Last week I talked about how the audience wants to love you, so now think about how wonderful it is to give something to someone who loves you.
In other words, the performance is less about you and more about them.  You are sharing your gifts, your talents, and all your preparation as a gift to the people sitting in the theater.  This can also help take the pressure off, and allows for a more open and relaxed presentation.
 Performing, in my opinion, is always about giving.   And it is usually easy to tell (or sense) when any performer, in any field, is doing it only for their own gratification.  

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets:

Secret #32:
“Think of every performance as a gift to the audience.”
