Mad Monday Ears

Mad Monday Ears

I’ve talked about ears before, because focusing on the ears can be helpful, particularly for good posture.

A common malady for many dancers is the Dropped Chin Syndrome. This is often caused by looking at the floor which is often caused by a lack of confidence. It is an unfortunate cascading series of events. Whew!

A simple fix for all these things is to think about your ears, and say to yourself: “Ears up and back”. Almost immediately, everything else will improve. Keeping the energy in the ears up prevents looking down, and a backward energy keeps the head and spine centered.

“Ears up and back!”

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Secret #1fff:
“Ears up and back.”
