Fun Friday Gremlins

Fun Friday Gremlins

I blog a lot about equal and opposite patterns of energy. This is important largely because of those pesky beings, the Gravity Gremlins. No matter what position a dancer is in, those beings are always pulling downward.

There are times when this can be used to a dancer’s advantage, for example, in pushing against the floor for turns and jumps (for impetus). But when the working leg is in the air (particularly in à la seconde) it feels as though a regiment of Gravity Gremlins are hanging onto the leg.

To keep these beings as bay, always resist them by sending energy in the opposite direction.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets:

Ballet Secret #22u:  
“Work in opposition to the Gravity Gremlins.
