Who am I?
The expectations for corps de ballet call for uniformity in costumes, hair, make-up, and choreography. So, how do you follow expectations of blending in and still express what is undisputedly YOU?
1) Use your go-to strengths to let yourself shine. In other words, rely on your strong attributes to add that splash of color to your movement. Do you have a unique way of showing accent, of being graceful or of displaying power? Do some soul searching, define that list of strengths and apply it.
2) Show your movement with confidence. Even though everyone around you may look the same and be given the same moves to dance, you can still stand out by dancing with more confidence, and a secure posture. People's eyes are drawn to a winner's confidence.
