Silly Saturday Elevator

Silly Saturday Elevator

An interesting and fun way to feel different energy patterns is to try balancing in a moving elevator. Often elevators even have a kind of barre on the walls.

Try balancing in retirĂ© when the elevator is going down, and feel the movement down as you are lifting the body up. It’s fun! Then try the reverse. You might learn a couple of new sensations that can help your technique.

It’s also fun if you are with another dancer and you have a little friendly competition to see who can balance longer when the elevator is moving.

Of course, it goes without saying that the elevator should be occupied only by dancers when you do this.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Silly Secret #86:
