Saturday Interruption Statute

Saturday Interruption Statute

This statute is filed under the category of Classroom Etiquette: Those things that are seldom taught directly to a dance student, but become assimilated by them during years of taking classes.

When dancers are working on pirouettes, or a series of traveling turns, their spot and mental focus are critical for balance. Therefore, one should never walk in front of a dancer who is turning. Doing so can interrupt their focus, and thus their balance. Worst case scenario: it could cause the pirouetting dancer to lose balance and fall.

Always walk behind a turning dancer.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Ballet Statute #88:
Never walk in front of a dancer who is turning.
