Saturday Murphy Statute

Saturday Murphy Statute

Most people are familiar with Murphy’s Law: If anything can go wrong it will, and at the worst possible moment.” I hesitate to apply it to dance, although I have seen occasional evidence of it.

There are, however, other versions of Murphy’s Law that happen a lot. Today’s  example is a case in point (no pun intended). The best balances you do will occur in your kitchen when you are alone.
This has been a subject of speculation among my dancer friends, since all of us have experienced this phenomenon. Perhaps there is something about the metal appliances? The small space? The smell of food? I don’t know. It is most likely because one’s own kitchen is a place where we relax and therefore are better able to achieve things. Essentially, it’s a worry-free zone.

Now, if we could just recreate that zone in the classroom…

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Ballet Statute #101:
The best balances always occur in your kitchen.

Quote of the Day:
“The place I like best in this world is the kitchen. No matter where it is, no matter what kind, if it’s a kitchen, if it’s a place where they make food, it’s fine with me. Ideally it should be well broken in. Lots of tea towels, dry and immaculate. Where tile catching the light (ting! Ting!)”
