Mad Monday Point of No Return

Mad Monday Point of No Return

There is a point of no return in everything. For example, balancing one count more than you should, or attempting  an extra pirouette when you shouldn’t. The point of no return means that there is no way to save the ending and it will look bad. Scary.

This is not to say that dancers shouldn’t push past their limits, because they should, especially in class. But on stage, knowing where the point of no return is assures that there is a beautiful finish to everything. And that’s important. It makes it appear as though the dancer is doing things effortlessly, and that is always our goal.

So be aware of the point of no return.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets:
Ballet Secret #10iii:  
Be aware of the point of no return.
