Super Saturday Sit and Stay

Super Saturday Sit and Stay

Most ballet students know not to sit down during class. This concept is taught early, and emphasized often. After spending time warming up the body for the rigors of a ballet class, one doesn’t sit down unless ill or injured.

If a dancer does sit down, that’s where they stay. Once down, they must stay down. If a student feels the need to sit down, then it is serious enough for them to stay there and simply observe the rest of class. If they sit and cool down, and then get up and try to rejoin the class, injuries can result.

Therefore, it is always sit and stay!

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets:

Ballet Statute #69:  
“Never sit down during class, except for illness or injury.”

Quote of the Day:
“It is not a person or situation that affects your life; it is the meaning you give to that person or situation, which influences your emotions and actions. Your choice is to change the meaning you gave it or to change your response, in order to create the outcome you want.”
