Mad Monday Rails

Mad Monday Rails

Wherever the pelvis goes, the dancer goes. Think about it. When you want to sit down, what do you do? You move the pelvis downward until you are seated. This works well for most things in life, but in dance the pelvis is often the culprit of unbalanced positions.

Imagine, when you are moving in any direction, that the pelvis is gliding along on a shiny, polished set of railroad tracks. This prevents any bumps or jostling and allows for smooth transitions.

If the pelvis is tipping, tucking, or tilting, the ride will be bumpy. And we all know there is no tipping, tucking, or tilting of the pelvis (most of the time) in ballet.

Ride the rails!

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Secret #22l:
“Imagine the pelvis gliding along shiny railroad tracks.”

“Time goes faster the more hollow it is. Lives with no meaning go straight past you, like trains that don’t stop at your station.”
