Wild Wednesday Ski Poles

Wild Wednesday Ski Poles

I’ve done other blogs about piqués, and how the pique leg must be straight. Absolutely, unequivocally straight.

Here is another image designed to help keep the piqué leg straight: Imagine that the piqué leg is a ski pole or a hiking stick. Not only straight, but strong and straight and designed to help support the body weight efficiently.

When the piqué leg is actually as rock solid as a hiking stick, the dancer has to lift higher than imagined (there’s another blog about that), so the knee won’t wink (yet another recent blog). The leg will be as solid as a wooden or steel pole.

Simple. Effective.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets:

Ballet Secret # 16kk:
“Imagine any piqué leg as a ski pole or hiking stick.”
