Saturday Superstition Changes

Saturday Superstition Changes

Here is a superstition that, in my experience, is ruthlessly ignored. Never change anything on opening day (night).

This may be more of an individual thing, since directors and choreographers are notorious for changing “just one more little thing” before the curtain goes up on an opening performance. But most dancers I know wouldn’t change anything in their choreography this late in the game.

Be that as it may, it is believed to bring bad luck if anything is changed on the day of an opening performance.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Ballet Superstition #184:
“Never change anything on opening day.”

Quote of the Day:
“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don't resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.”
― Lao Tzu
