Better than butterflies in your stomach, I guess

Netted an awesome new ballet metaphor for my collection today:
Rye, to keep us from collapsing our arms says,
“Keep armpits open!
Butterflies are in your armpits!
Make sure you Don’t Squoosh.”

    That is hilarious! I’ll have to remember that for my pre-ballet class girls. :-)

    This is a fantastic tip! My teachers have told me to imagine a pine cone or a tennis ball under my arms, but this imagery is a billion times better.
