Fun Friday Vanishing Neck

Fun Friday Vanishing Neck

This blog is pretty self-explanatory. Beware of the vanishing neck. When this happens it gives the appearance of wearing football pads and this is very scary.

A disappearing neck is to be avoided at all costs, and this problem often occurs when the upper back rounds forward and the neck slides downward. Scary again. A dancer’s neck must be fully evident at all times!

To prevent the Vanishing Neck Syndrome, elongate the spine (see precious blogs), and keep the eye focus up, and certainly not on the floor (see previous blogs).

A dancer should never look like he/she is wearing a set of football pads. Ever.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Secret #21oo:
