Mad Monday Mmmmm Habits

Mad Monday Mmmmm Habits

We all have our idiosyncrasies. Habits developed over time that are associated with something we do frequently, like studying or reading or walking, etc. This is not usually a problem unless one of these habits creep into dance training, like biting your lip while concentrating.

Another problem involves facial expressions, like grimacing when exerting an effort, or when worrying about some step. Obviously, this is not allowed in ballet, since we are trying to give the illusion that it is easy. Right.

Simply be aware of these sneaky little habits, and they will be more easily controlled.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets:
Ballet Secret #16q:  
“Beware of habits of expression and use of the mouth.”
