Wacky Wednesday Appealing

Wacky Wednesday Appealing

Today I’m going to revisit that fun step known as temps de cuisse. You may remember  Ballet Secret #15y: Temps de cuisse means “thigh movement”; and this is true. But the main focus of a temp de cuisse is on the working foot, and how it moves from fifth to fifth by peeling away from the floor. One could even say it is an a-peeling (appealing) step. 

The foot moves like peeling a stamp off an envelope. (Does anyone use stamps and envelopes anymore?)  Anyway, the working foot moves like pulling that stamp off that you stuck there and then immediately decided to remove (maybe you wrote the wrong address…). 

The operative word here is “peel”. It assures a fully pointed foot before it leaves the ground.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets:
Ballet Secret #15uu  
“A temp de cuisse peels away from the floor.”

Quote of the Day:
“There are two main predictions for the future; it’s either appealing or appalling. An appealing future is created by people who identify their real values in life and believe in what they can do.”
