Super Saturday Violence

Super Saturday Violence

We all want that awe-inspiring extension and stretch that seems to go on forever. But achieving it is a process – not an instant happening. Like the tortoise and the hare that I talked about recently, stretching is achieved through slow, gentle consistent practice.

It’s tempting to get aggressive with stretching, especially on days that have been frustrating. Violent bouncing, pushing too hard or stretching too far to fast are all examples of stretch violence. Stop the violence!

Trust the process. Stretch every day, pushing gently but not aggressively. It works.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets:
Ballet Statute # 104:
“Never stretch violently or aggressively.”
