Wacky Wednesday Travel Day

Wacky Wednesday Travel Day

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I present Travel Day. Many of you will probably be traveling to visit loved ones today or tomorrow, so I thought it would be a good time to talk about how important traveling is in ballet technique.

So often dancers perform as though they are on a postage stamp. Their steps are tiny and underneath them. This is usually caused by insecurity. When this happens the dancer “pulls back” into oneself and doesn’t move very far – literally or figuratively.

So on this day filled with travel, take a moment to remember how important it is to reach out from all the extremities (arms, legs, head, feet, etc.); “use the full floor space”; and step further than you think is necessary. 

Safe travels everyone!

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets:
Ballet Secret #10ggg:  
Traveling is important.
