Saturday Dance Superstition

Saturday Dance Superstition

Dance performances and flowers go hand in hand. For example, those memorable curtain calls where a large bouquet is presented to the leading ballerina and she selects a single rose, kisses it, and gives it to her partner. Ahhhh….

But there is a superstition surrounding flowers and performers. It is bad luck to give flowers to a dancer before she/he goes onstage. Presumably it’s tempting fate. 

However, back in history, there were some flowers that were said to impart extremely good luck to a performer, regardless of when they were given. There’s only one catch: those flowers had to be stolen from a graveyard.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Superstition #:
“It’s bad luck to give a dancer flowers before the performance.”
