Forgive me in my attempts to explain things today.
My head is fuzzy.
Our dance teacher was explaining to us the balance in keeping our chests lifted as we raised our legs in arabesque as we did this one move I don’t remember the name of.
It’s like a pendulum. Our arm shifts down as our leg shifts up, but we have to keep it level.
If not, it’s broken.
The way she said this statement hit me.
Keep your chin up, keep it level. If not, it’s broken.
Keep your chin up, little dancer.
You are not broken.
Nothing can break your spirit.
Keep your head up.
