Mad Monday Plié Parachute

Mad Monday Plié Parachute

On Saturday I talked about how every jump must land in a plié. That’s because a plié is the body’s parachute. It allows a controlled, safe descent.

Remember the parachute image next time you jump – or do almost anything for that matter. Think of the air under a parachute and how it fills the canopy, allowing the skydiver to float safely back to earth. That’s what a plié does for a dancer – it cushions what would otherwise be a crash landing. Scary.

Plié parachutes!

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Secret #1rrr:
“A plié is your body’s parachute.”
