Sunday Holding Back

Sunday Holding Back

What’s holding you back? Fear? Sadness? Worry? Notice how the usual suspects are negative. Seldom do positive things or thoughts hold a person (or dancer) back.

This can manifest physically: holding back before a difficult step or pirouette causes a poor preparation and causes the whole operation to fail. Or, it can manifest in life: holding back and not attending a job interview (or audition) due to fear of failure assures failure.

So, the first step is to identify those culprits that are holding you back. Then you can take steps (no pun intended) to fight them. Those steps can range from replacing negative thoughts with positive ones (always a good strategy), reading or watching motivational material; or, if you can’t do it alone, seeking help from a professional who is knowledgeable about your particular needs.
From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets:
