Super Saturday Saying

Super Saturday Saying

When dance combinations move across the floor, dancers are expected to move until the floor runs out. In other words, there is no stopping in the middle and walking away. That’s because a floor is a terrible thing to waste.

It is easy for dancers to become frustrated (perfectionists that they are), and when this happens halfway across the floor, the first impulse is to stop and walk away. This is not allowed. The dancer must perform the combination across the full length of the floor until the floor runs out. Unless they have suddenly incurred an injury, of course.

Always remember that a floor is a terrible thing to waste.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets:

Ballet Secret #53:  
“A floor is a terrible thing to waste.”

Quote of the Day:
“My two favorite things in life are libraries and bicycles. They both move people forward without wasting anything. The perfect day: riding a bike to the library.”
