Break a leg - a way of wishing someone, usually involved in the theatrical industry, 'good luck'.
It is often said that the expression comes from Ancient Greece when the audience, instead of applauding, would stomp their feet to show appreciation for a performance. If they stomped for long enough they would then break their leg, a sign that the show was fantastic!
Stomp - to step heavily
