Fun Friday Tightrope

Fun Friday Tightrope

Sous-sus can be a difficult position for beginners to understand. The feet don’t cross completely, only partially, but one foot is directly in front of the toes of the other foot. Also, one foot should never be standing (ouch!) on the other.

I’ve blogged before about how the feet make a heart shape in sous-sus, and the best way to achieve this is to imagine being on a tightrope. On a tightrope, each foot is solidly on the rope, with one foot exactly in front of the other.

If this doesn’t happen on a tightrope, there better be a net below!

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets:

Ballet Secret #2y:  
In sous-sus, imagine standing on a tightrope.
