Wacky Wednesday Life Raft



Wacky Wednesday Life Raft

A good acronym can be very helpful in ballet training. So today I present a life raft to help you achieve better pirouettes.

The first element of a pirouette is your posture, with the shoulders and hips level. The torso makes the shape of a rectangle (R). Next there should be a strong relev√©, with the arch of the foot approximately over the second toe (A). There must be a strong spot  with a good eye focus (F). And finally you must use the tension you need, no more and no less, engaging all necessary muscles to keep the position solid (T).

There you have it! A Life Raft for pirouettes!

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Secret #15iii:
“For great pirouettes, remember your Life Raft.”
