Mad Monday Red “X” Spots

Mad Monday Red “X” Spots

There are certain targets in ballet technique. These targets can be imagined as drawing a giant red “X” on the spot, similar to an X on a treasure map, or as a clue to a geocaching site.

One of these Red X sites is the spot on the knee where the foot is placed in a retiré. It could be on the front, side or back of the knee, but each spot is specific. Any deviation from these Xs would put the foot in the wrong place.

Another X is one I’ve talked about before: the place in front of the lower ribs where the arms in fifth en avant (or first) must be placed. There’s a big red X there.

There are others. Go on a treasure hunt and find them!

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets:
Ballet Secret #10fff:  
There are many different red “X” spots.
