Fun Friday Leg Straws

Fun Friday Leg Straws

On Wednesday I talked about imagining your torso as a carbonated beverage, with the bubbles rising upward. Today let’s think about the legs.

Imagine that each leg has a straw running up through its center. Each straw starts at the center of the foot, and runs up to connect on each side of the pelvis.

Now visualize sucking a thick milkshake up through those straws. It’s not a super thick milkshake, just thick enough to require a little effort to get it all the way up through the straw. If you apply too much force, it might cause you to lock back into your knees – never a good thing.

Here you have another way of imagining the constant directive of “pull up on your legs”.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Secret #1ggg:
“Visualize a straw running inside the center of each leg. Imagine sucking a thick milkshake through them.”

Quote of the Day:
“Getting started is the most difficult thing to do; once you file it out, they rest of the journey is as soft as the straw. Be a good beginner.”
