Marvelous Monday Hands on Hips

Marvelous Monday Hands on Hips

Yes, here I go again with another thought about two-way energy. This energy is so important there can never be enough ways to think about it.

Here is a simple idea: Put your hands on your hips. That’s right. Any time you are having difficulty with a step – any step or turn – try doing it with your hands on your hips. Feel like your hands are pressing gently downward. This will provide the toward-the-floor energy sensation that may have been lacking.

Usually, dancers are pulling up too much, without a corresponding energy going down, and placing the hands on the hips makes the “down energy” easier to feel.

Try it!

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Secret #22ww:
“ Hands on hips helps dancers feel downward energy.”
