Technical Tuesday Ears


Technical Tuesday Ears

The human ear is fascinating. It never actually stops hearing even when you sleep. How is that possible? Our brain simply ignores sound during sleep. But there’s more!

The inner ear is the main organ of balance, and it has a direct connection to the brain. This is an important thing, especially for dancers. The ear can distinguish between hundreds of thousands of sounds and it’s those tiny hair cells in your inner ear that translate and send sound waves to the brain.  But there’s more!

Children’s ears are more sensitive than adults, and your ears continue to grow throughout  your life. The human ear hears in the frequency of 1,000 to 50,000 hertz, but immediately after eating, your hearing is a little less sharp.

Finally, earwax is necessary for good ear health and when you are fearful or afraid, your ears secrete more of it.

Now you’ll never take your ears – or your hearing – for granted again.


From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Anatomical Secret #27qq:
“ The human ear never stops hearing, even when you sleep.”
