Fun Friday Goldilocks

Fun Friday Goldilocks
The Goldilocks principle states that something must fall within certain margins, as opposed to reaching extremes. Or, if one is talking about life in the universe, earth is just the right distance from the sun – not too close, not too far away – to support life. It is the cosmic Goldilocks zone.
There is a Goldilocks zone for many things in ballet, too. A dancer must use enough tension to hold a position, but not be so tense that the position is ruined. A dancer must stretch just beyond their current capability, but not so far as to cause injury. These are just two examples of the Goldilocks zone in ballet. There are many others.
So think about being in the Goldilocks zone for whatever movement or position you are doing. Then everything will be “just right”. 

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets:
Secret #7ddd 
“Remember the Goldilocks Theory.”
