Sunday Love

Sunday Love
In keeping with our theme of performance hints, today I’m going to talk about one of the best hints I ever received as a dancer.  It is something I used in every performance I did from the time I first heard it at Florida State University.  It is a short, simple saying, but it works wonders. 
It is a gentle reminder that encompasses the other things I talked about in previous weeks.  It helps put the focus where it needs to be:  on the audience, not the dancer.   So try this at your next performance, whether you are a dancer, teacher, choreographer, or director.     
Right before a performance and after warm-up, gather the dancers together and give this simple directive:  
“Do it with love”.                                                                            

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets:

Motivational Secret #21 
“Do it with love.”
