Fun Friday Firm

Fun Friday Firm

It is important to use pressure against the floor for many steps. Tendu, dégagé, glissade, assemblé, etc. – the list is endless. But so often dancers just skim the floor, usually when they are feeling unsure.

If you are having a problem with any combination of steps, go through them slowly and think about where the downward (firm) push against gravity should occur. You will probably discover where the problems are.

Pressing firmly against the floor with a corresponding upward energy provides the power and resistance needed for the successful execution of most steps. Use gravity to your advantage! Be firm!

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Secret #22aaa:
“Use the floor firmly.”

“Let children read whatever they want and then talk about it with them. If parents and kids can talk together, we won't have as much censorship because we won't have as much fear.”
