Mad Monday Seaweed

Mad Monday Seaweed

The fingers are an often overlooked area in ballet technique. Students commonly consider the hands and fingers as an afterthought – less important than the legs and feet. Scary.

Everything is important. If the hands and fingers are left to their own devices they become either stiff and immobile, or loose and limp, hanging lifelessly at the end of the arm. Neither one is a pretty picture.

Instead, think of the fingers moving like seaweed in the ocean: with enough energy to hold their shape, but enough relaxation to move and stretch freely.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Secret 6ddd#:
“Imagine the fingers moving like seaweed.”

Quote of the Day:
“All that is important is this one moment in movement. Make the moment important, vital, and worth living. Do not let it slip away unnoticed and unused.”
