Fun Friday Needles

Fun Friday Needles

In an earlier post, I talked about how the feet should move: Ballet Secret #7ggg: “Imagine the feet working like sewing needles, with a sharp end.”

Today I’m adding another element. If sewing needles don’t work for you, imagine an expert knitter rapidly working to create a beautiful garment. If you’ve ever seen this, you know how those needles flash – almost to the point of being too fast to focus on.

When accomplished dancers perform brilliantly, this is what their footwork looks like: knitting needles working rapidly and precisely back and forth. See today’s Link of the Day below.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Secret #7sss:
“The feet should look like fine knitting needles working.”

Quote of the Day:
“Properly practiced, knitting soothes the troubled spirit, and it doesn't hurt the untroubled spirit either.”
