Silly Saturday Saying

Silly Saturday Saying

Dancers are a creative bunch. There are many silly sayings that float around the dance world, and some might even have some basis in fact. Others, not so much.

A male dancer friend of mine always said that every dance studio and every theater stage has a quota of pirouettes that can be performed in any 24 hour period. If one dancer does a phenomenal number of turns it means that the quota has been used up and no one else will be able to pirouette well for the rest of the day. Scary.

This saying was undoubtedly created as a way to rationalize poor pirouette performance, but nevertheless, this silly saying is fun. And that is something every dance studio, stage- and dancer - can use a bit more of.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets:

Secret #38:  
“Silly Saying: Every dance studio and stage has a quota.”
