Monday Buttons

Monday Buttons

In our constant quest for good posture we should always remember the three buttons. 

The first button is the belly button and I have mentioned before how it is treated like an elevator button – it should be pushed in.  The other two buttons are in the derrière.  These two are related to the action of the muscles in the seat when the legs are turned out:  an indentation forms on each side of the derrière when the turn-out is correctly engaged.

Three buttons!  As one of my students so cleverly observed:  the two in the seat are “butt”-ons.  Proving once again that there is no such thing as a dumb dancer.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets:

Secret #1z:  
“For good posture, remember the three buttons.”
