Madcap Monday Tornado

Madcap Monday Tornado

Here we go again with yet another image for turn-out. This one is a real whirlwind.

The devastating weather phenomenon known as a tornado is actually formed from the top and from the bottom. You can read about it if you are at all interested in meteorology. But I digress. The important thing here is to make turn-out a constant thing, like a spiraling tornado. Turn-out doesn’t stop any time  you are dancing. Not at all. It is a constant upward spiral, and I have blogged about it before.

The image of two tornadoes, one for each leg, rotating in opposite directions will provide the correct – and constant – sensation.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets:

Ballet Secret #3r:  
 Imagine two tornadoes spinning in opposite directions.

Quote of the Day:
“In the great tornado of life, things sometimes seem out of control, and we can’t see where we are going. But sometimes, when the storm passes and the dust settles, things have landed into place beautifully.”
