Mad Monday Zero

Mad Monday Zero

Adding pirouettes is a constant goal for dancers. We are all familiar with hitting a wall and feeling powerless to add one more. Sigh.

Here is a psychological trick. Start counting your pirouettes at zero, not one. This tricks the brain into thinking the body is doing the familiar number but ends up adding one more.

And, as we all know, dancing is largely about what happens in the brain.

Try it and see if it works for you.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Secret #14pp:
“Start counting your pirouettes at zero.”
