Metaphor Monday #5: Hold a pasta plate

Is it Monday again? Yes, it is… That’s why we’re back with another Metaphor Monday! Luckily, the metaphors used by our choreographers keep piling up. We’ve got plenty of creative imagery to share with you.

Metaphor Monday #5: “Hold your hand like you hold a pasta plate.”

Teaching Latin-inspired moves to dancers who are not used to this type of partner work, asks for a fair amount of creativity. So when two modern/contemporary dancers had to work out a ballroom-like turn together, the choreographer came up with a tasty metaphor for the one leading the turn: hold your hand like you hold a pasta plate. That’s how we make things work!

Bon appetit :-).
