THINGS I HAVE LEARNED FROM BALLET
Hosting by WebRing.
This is a page of things I have learned from ballet that I think is very important in dance or even just in life itself. (Newer ones are always at the top)
~As long as you smile the audience won't notice a mistake
~There are only 7 movements in dance-binding, gliding, turning, stretching, jumping, rising and darting.
~it's now sweat, it's glow
~they tell you to spot for a reason
~keep you toe-nails short
~you can't fall off the floor (easily)
~you can tell how you feel but NEVER complain
~don't make excuses
~"Can't" doesn't exist
~You are the one that's dancing, not your teacher
~You can always learn from another dancer, no matter how good or how bad he/she is
~Never think you cannot do a step before you even try it
~The more you learn and practise, the more you can do
~There's always going to be some one better than me, don't get discouraged.
~It is no big deal if someone tell me that I am doing something wrong.
~It is okay to make mistakes
~Never show your anger towards your teacher doesn't matter how unfair they might be
~Most teachers don't put up with silly non-sense
~It is okay to cry but tears don't always solve the problem
~How a dancer felt doesn't matter to a cherographer (from the movie Centerstage)
~Never let my personal or social life affect my dancing
~There's pain involve in dancing
~It is better to do an easier job but do it good than to do a hard job without doing it well.
~It is better to get embarrassd by asking a "stupid" question about a particular dance step than to not know what you are doing and train the wrong muscle
