Fun Friday Snooze Alert

Fun Friday Snooze Alert

In ballet, the correct eye focus is usually slightly above eye level. See previous blog: http://balletwebb.blogspot.com/2013/10/eye-focus.html This means that dancers seldom focus on the floor. And sadly, doing so is a very common bad habit. 

Wouldn’t it be interesting if dancers wore a device designed for drivers. One that fits neatly over the ear and emits a loud beep or some other sound whenever the head drops forward or down. These handy little items are designed to keep drivers from falling asleep at the wheel, but could also be used to alert dancers when they drop their eye focus.

Of course it wouldn’t really be practical, since dancers move so much. But it is an interesting image to use. Imagine a beep going off every time a dancer inadvertently looks at the floor!

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets:

Ballet Secret #1ww:  
Imagine wearing a driver’s snooze alert on your ear.”
