Wild Wednesday Writing

Wild Wednesday Writing

A dancer strives to achieve a beautiful “flow of movement” no matter how difficult the series of steps may be. The dance should look effortless, with no way for the audience to tell where one step ends and another one begins. As every dancer knows, this is often more difficult than it sounds.

It’s like the difference between printing and cursive handwriting. In printing there is a stop, or separation between each letter. But in cursive, one letter flows directly into the next.

Think about this the next time you are trying to make your steps flow. Imagine cursive writing – not printing.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Secret #22zz:
“ Picture the difference between printing and cursive writing.”

Link of the Day (A lovely version of Nutcracker grand pas):
Quote of the Day:
“I prefer the pen. There is something elemental about the glide and flow of nib and ink on paper.”
James Robertson, The Testament of Gideon Mack
