Mad Monday Back Pockets

Mad Monday Back Pockets

Here is another postural image to prevent rounded shoulders (a common problem in this computer age). Sitting up and/or standing straight is important for everyone, not just dancers.

To maintain a good, upright posture, in addition to lengthening the spine upwards, and the muscles elongating downward, imagine this: the shoulder blades pulling downward as though they are being put into the back pockets in a pair of jeans.

There you have it. Keep your shoulder blades in your back pockets!

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets:

Ballet Secret #1kkk:  
Imagine the shoulder blades dropping into the back pockets.
