Please don't knock me dead. ;)

Ballet dancers use other figurative language which is equally strange...
Merde!

Everything you’ve always wanted to know about ballet dancers but were afraid to ask

Kristin Scott: I know nothing about eating Kleenex, although ballet dancers have many strange habits. For example, we tell each other merde before the show. In ballet language it means good luck. Also, blood on any pointe shoe is good luck.

Using a french word for excrement is interesting. However, no one could ever accuse me of having much to do with ballet.
 
C'est la vie.
 
"Do your best" is a P/C backup then.

C'est la vie means such is life...that won't work either..:)
Similar to Merde Happens! ;)

*edit*
Supposedly if you wish them good luck it is bad luck...
Now I see you were just saying such is life....not recommending saying it...

Wishing bad luck and cursing

Generally, it is considered bad luck to wish someone good luck in a theater. Prior to performances, it is traditional for the cast to gather together to avert the bad luck by wishing each other bad luck or cursing.

In English-speaking countries, the expression "break a leg" replaces the phrase "good luck", which is considered unlucky. The expression is sometimes used outside the theatre, as superstitions and customs travel through other professions and then into common use. If someone says "good luck", they must go out of the theatre, turn around 3 times, spit, curse, then knock on the door and ask to be readmitted to the theatre. (Note that this is the same ritual one is supposed to use when accidentally mentioning or quoting from "the Scottish Play" in a theater.) The exact origin of this expression is unknown, but some of the most popular theories are the Shakespearean Theory or Traditional Theory, and the Bowing Theory.[2] This expression has so entered the mainstream that it is used by non-actors toward actors and in non-theatrical situations.

In Portuguese and Spanish-speaking countries, before each performance, director and actors gather on the stage, join hands and scream "Muita Merda!"/"¡Mucha mierda!" ("A lot of crap!"). Instead of saying "break a leg", those who want to wish good luck to the performers wish "mierda" to them. Similarly, in France and in Italy, actors say the word "Merde!" (french) / "Merda" (Italian) just before making an entrance. The French "Merde!" is also popular among ballet dancers across the world. To say "break a leg" in ballet is considered just as much bad luck as saying "good luck", considering that it is a physical art.

BTW,
My daughter is in ballet and I can't wait for the performances..
I sure hope there isn't any leg breaking.

Enjoy!
There was no flash photography allowed so it was fun to get a bit creative with the lighting.

My friend and I went because we knew some people in the production and were so impressed.  It was very professional and lots of fun.  I laughed until I cried at some of the young dancers.  Very entertaining.  Now I want to learn Hip Hop!

StudioK performed again at Disneyland 10/9/10.  There were numerous highlights to the performance and a strong crowd of locals as well as Disney visitors cheered on the StudioK dancers. Everyone had a great time.

Silly me. I arrived at the PAC around 7 PM--because I 'assumed'
it started then. I was just in time for--Intermission. But, what followed was great. Maybe someone can fill me in on the first half. Was the Micheal Jackson routine done again? I was looking forward to a follow-up!
