Wild Wednesday Stop Sign

Wild Wednesday Stop Sign

I have talked before about how a grand plié must be a continuous movement with no stopping, pausing or hesitating at the bottom (in the basement). But it still happens...

I can only surmise that students think there is a big red stop sign at the bottom of the plié, requiring them to make a full stop. Scary. There is no such sign. There isn’t even a yield sign. There is no sign at all and therefore the plié must remain smooth and constant like driving down the road on a sunny day.

There are no stop signs in grand plié. Period.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets:

Ballet Secret #2z:  
There is no stop sign at the bottom of a grand plié.
