Wild Wednesday Three Walls

Wild Wednesday Three Walls

The problem with développés, especially in the center, is maintaining balance. It seems so simple, but there are lots of ways to waver or (gasp!) fall.

To help create gorgeous développés, it helps to imagine supporting walls. If, for instance, the développé is extending to the front, imagine a wall on the supporting side, and one behind. There is also a wall on the working side, to prevent dropping the torso on that side. It’s like doing développés in a lovely, supportive box.

Three walls! You can adapt this idea for a développé in any direction.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Secret #11m:
During a developpé, imagine three walls.
