Ballet related Old wives' tales

Recommended Posts

Recently there have been a few threads where someone has brought up a saying or an Old wives' tale related to ballet.

For example, Lola_doggy (on the Adult dancers board) says "I have heard it said that the more you dance the wider your feet get,"

and then there was the thread on the young dancers forum from Katrina about how sitting cross-legged can ruin your turn-out.

I was wondering if anyone has any other Old Wives' tales or sayings related ot ballet? I find them fascinating.

Hmm, let's see, the most outrageous one that I've heard recently was that if one always wore their hair pulled tightly back in a pony tail, one's "side burns" would grow in dark and heavy!(Speaking here of females!?) :rolleyes:
