George Balanchine said, I don’t want people who want to dance, I want people who have to dance.
Here are more parallels:
What are the beats in your sentences? It’s not just counting syllables, but assigning their emphasis so they’re not an awkward string of words or steps.
Practice produces staying power. For Balanchine, working at 0ne-hundred percent was expected all the time. What are you waiting for? What are you saving for? Now is all there is.
The French ballet term is posé, to hover in suspense. Like chapter endings where the reader fingers the page and is forced to make the decision to continue reading or put the book down.
Good Luck and Merde in your next work!
