Saturday Click-and-Sigh Statute

Saturday Click-and-Sigh Statute

Yes, it’s true. There is no “click and sigh” in ballet. These moments usually come with a roll of the eyes – also not allowed. 

You know what I mean. The click of the tongue, a sigh, sometimes a shrug, and a roll of the eyes. All of it indicating “attitude”. It is a physical manifestation of the phrase “whatever…”  This behavior is often seen in adolescents, but may be present in anyone. It shows a lack of respect, not only for the teacher and other students, but also for the dancer doing the click-and-sigh.

It prevents a positive attitude by replacing it with a negative attitude. Never a good idea. 
That’s why there is no click-and-sigh in ballet. Not now. Not ever.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets:
Ballet Statute #90:  
“There is no “click and sigh” in ballet.”
