Saturday Statute Pelvis Direction

Saturday Statute Pelvis Direction

Earlier this week I wrote about the muscles involved in turn-out and included a drawing of the pelvis and how these muscles attach, etc.

Another important thing to remember about the pelvis is this: it is a large group of bones, and wherever the pelvis goes, the rest of the body usually follows. After all, it’s the first thing that moves whenever a person sits down.

Dancers need to remember that if the  pelvis is out of alignment in any movement, all hope is lost. Usually the trajectory will be backwards, but other directions can result – none of them good.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets:

Ballet Statute #82:  
“ Wherever the pelvis goes, you will go.

Quote of the Day:
“It is better to take many small steps in the right direction than to make a great leap forward only to stumble backward.”
Louis Sachar
