Saturday Superstition Charm

Saturday Superstition Charm

Many dancers have lucky items they always carry in their dance bag, and these objects are often placed in a specific spot on the dressing table before a performance. But some dancers go further.

They hide small charms on their body or sew them into their costume to assure good luck. Common ones are wedding rings or heirloom pieces of jewelry. There may also be a ritual involving these objects, such as sewing them in with thread of a particular color, or secreting them in a certain order along with other preparatory tasks.

Performers tend to be a superstitious group!

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Superstition #163:
“Some dancers hide good luck charms under their costumes.”

“If theater is ritual, then dance is too... It's as if the threads connecting us to the rest of the world were washed clean of preconceptions and fears.”
