Saturday 2.5 Statute

Saturday 2.5 Statute

We are all familiar with computer upgrades that go by the numbers: 2.0, 2.5, 3.0 or something like Windows 10 etc. Well, this constant numerical upgrading doesn’t work well in the ballet world.

Case in point: Second position. There is never a Second 2.5 – an upgrade that causes the feet to go beyond 180 degrees. Ouch! Yet, this happens, especially during grand plié. Those feet slide backwards and suddenly it’s Second 2.5 – more than the original and worse, much worse.

Never, accidentally or on purpose, take your second position beyond its control zone. Beware of second 2.5!

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Ballet Statute #102:
“There is no Second Position 2.5.”

“Windows 10 on both an old 2011 upgraded computer and a new 2016 computer was an excruciating experience”
