"Don’t be afraid to make mistakes in class. Maybe on stage it’s different, but class is for pushing yourself and trying new things. If you did 2 pirouettes yesterday, do 3 pirouettes today. If you did 3 pirouettes yesterday, do 4 today. That’s why you wake up in the morning - you cannot just keep doing 2 pirouettes and being satisfied with that. So don’t be afraid to fall. If you make mistakes, I will correct you. That’s why I’m here, that’s why you come to class."
Alexander Filipov, last week in class (via gothamcityballet)
