Fun Friday Bald

Fun Friday Bald

Every dancer has a unique way - or ways - of preparing for a performance. There are many humorous devices as well as practical ones.

One funny way is the imagine that everyone in the audience is bald. Picture it. All those heads standing out in the darkness of the theater. It is good for a smile, and smiling will calm you down.

Acoording to legend, prankster William Horace de Vere Cole bought tickets for particular seats at a performance and gave them to eight bald men whose heads, each painted with a single letter, spelled out a particular word. What word it was varies with each telling of the story. True? Perhaps.

At any rate, imagining funny things can help calm performance jitters.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Secret #29c:
“To calm performance jitters, imagine everyone in the audience is bald.”
