Sunday Practice

Sunday Practice

Working hard toward your dancing goal, obviously involves practice. Make your practice count.

How?  Repetition. Muscle memory. Finding the correct sensation and repeating it over and over. We are familiar with all these things, but because they are so familiar, we forget not only how important they are, but also how much repetition it takes to get it right.

As it says above, getting it right is only part of the puzzle. There must be enough repetition so that you can’t get it wrong. Think about when you first learned to ride a two-wheeler. At first it was difficult, but with practice, you got it right. Then, because you rode your bike a lot, now you couldn’t forget how, even if you wanted to. And you’ll always remember  - no matter how old you might get to be – 40? 50? Or beyond.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets:

Motivational Secret #107:  
Practice until you can’t get it wrong.”
