Mad Monday Jigsaw Puzzle

Mad Monday Jigsaw Puzzle

You’ve probably seen those finished jigsaw puzzles that have been mounted on a board and displayed as art. The individual pieces are always apparent, and perhaps that is what makes it interesting.

It doesn’t work that way in dance. When a series of steps, or piece of choreography is first learned, the lines between the jigsaw of steps is evident. It is only through rehearsal and repetition that these lines are erased, and one step melds seamlessly with its neighbor. That’s the goal, anyway.

So think of merging each step into the next – no hesitation, no change in dynamics, etc. It is challenging but worth it!

No jigsaw lines!

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Secret #21nn:
“Imagine eliminating jigsaw puzzle segments.”
