Fun Friday Superpower

Fun Friday Superpower

Imagine a ballet comic book hero or heroine. This person would have to possess at least one superpower. Think of Superman: x-ray vision, speed, the ability to “leap tall buildings in a single bound”…

A ballet superhero’s first and best power is plié. While it may not enable a dancer to leap a tall building, it has similar potential. As I have blogged about before, pliés push and cushion. Pliés also allow dancers to look beautiful and effortless by preventing crashing. And, as we all know, there is no crashing in ballet.

Pliés do more than that. They protect the dancer by providing the resiliency that prevents muscle and joint damage. That’s what superheroes do, right? They protect.

There are other Ballet Superpowers, but I’ll talk about them in future blogs.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets:

Secret #2u:  
“One Ballet Superpower is plié.”
