Sensational Saturday Saturation

Sensational Saturday Saturation

Have you ever taken a class and felt like nothing you did worked – at all? Me too. This is a common phenomenon, and it happens to all humans, not just dancers.

It is what I like to call the Saturation Point. It is as though your brain and body have absorbed everything humanly possible, and now the organism needs time to sort and file all the information and sensations that have been encountered.  Until this house cleaning process is finished, nothing else will work. Sigh.

So. On those days when the balances go awry, and multiple pirouettes don’t happen, allow your body and mind a chance to regroup. Don’t panic. It’s normal. Tomorrow things will be back in their rightful place and all will be well again – and sometimes even better.
From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets:

Ballet Statute #77  
Every dancer has a saturation point."

Each person deserves a day away in which no problems are confronted, no solutions searched for.  Each of us needs to withdraw from the cares which will not withdraw from us.”
