    of my dancing rather than just going through the motions and regurgitating what I’ve previously trained my muscles to do. Although I did not know it was called this, essentially, my goal was to engage in deep practice. The excerpts from Daniel Coyle’s book articulated in words the way in which I’ve been attempting to take class. Coyle’s writing introduced to me that deep practice is most efficient way to create optimal myelin, and if built on the proper circuits, myelin creates good muscle memory habits and skill—or simply put, “practice makes myelin, and myelin makes perfect” (44). Coyle’s insights suggest that deep practice is the most way to learn and improve any skill. Coyle claims that the rules of deep practice are to chunk it up, repeat it, and learn to feel it. As I read this, I realized that all three of those ideas are present in structure of our classes. In theory, ballet classes are structured to promote students to engage in deep practice. Yet, it is possible to take class without doing deep practice. Coyle’s explanations helped me to further understand how I might achieve deep practice during class and I can now use that information as a tool to help me make the most out of the way I practice and learn. Rule one, “chunk it up”, is present through the sequence of combinations that a ballet class usually follows. Each exercise at the barre—plie, tendu, degage, ronde de jambe, ect.—are smaller “chunked up” versions of sequences of movements that are later…

    Daniel Chandler emphasis this in his references to Saussure’s “two-part model of the sign” (Chandler, 2002), which provides an explanation onto why the name and location may be causing confusion to the patrons. Saussure two-part model discusses how the listener of a signifier which in this case be the word “café” would psychologically associate it with “other elements associated with it in a linguistic sign” (Chandler, 2002) which is the signified.
