Fun Friday Ingredients

Fun Friday Ingredients

If you’ve ever baked a cake or cookies and accidentally mistook the canister of salt for the one filled with sugar you know how horrible a small error can be. Yuck! Ballet is like that: simple ingredients like plié, tendu, etc. must be as perfect as possible so you don’t ruin the finished “cake”.

I’ve talked about this before – how ballet is like a recipe: http://balletwebb.blogspot.com/search?q=recipe
But this goes even further – back to the earliest, most basic steps. The sugar, if you will. The reason dancers practice so consistently, and do a ballet barre daily is to prevent any bad habits in the basic steps and to make them as beautifully perfect as possible.

It sounds daunting, but it really isn’t. Like any habit pattern, it gets easier with time, and in ballet, the results speak for themselves!

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Secret #21pp:
“The basic ballet ingredients are important.”
