Wacky Wednesday Hip Bungi

Wacky Wednesday Hip Bungi

A common problem during rond de jambes at the barre is the fact that the supporting hip wants to move with the rond de jambe, instead of applying resistance to it. This mistake allows the entire pelvis to move and makes it appear that the dancer is doing the hula instead of a classical rond de jambe.

To keep from doing the hula at the barre, imagine a bungi cord attached to the supporting hip. This cord runs from the hip to the wall and is tight enough to provide a counter-pull during each rond de jambe.

Now the hips will remain calm and squarely to the front!

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Secret #22g:
“Imagine a bungi cord tying your supporting hip to the wall during rond de jambes.”
