Fun Friday Ballet Buffet

Fun Friday Ballet Buffet

We’ve all attended functions where a plethora of food is laid out on groaning tables and we help ourselves to the bounty, all while trying to balance our plates or platters. This is especially difficult if we have a beverage in one hand and a full plate in the other.

The secret of course, is to keep the plate level at all times. Even a slight tilt and those lovely chocolate covered strawberries will slide madly off the plate. Scary.

It’s the same idea for the alignment of the pelvis in ballet. With the exception of high, extended positions like arabesque, the pelvis must be level. I’ve blogged about this before.

Use the image of a platter of food at a ballet buffet. If this platter were balanced on top of the pelvis and covered with food, you’d want to keep it perfectly level, no matter what movements are being performed.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets:
Ballet Secret #1nnn:
Imagine the pelvis as a platter for a ballet buffet.”
