Saturday Creaky

Saturday Creaky

We all know that a plié is the most important step in ballet. But sometimes we forget to use it to its full potential.

One of the worst things I see happen with plies is the dreaded creaky plié. That’s when the bending of the knee appears to be like a reluctant, rusty hinge – one that creaks loudly when moved. Ouch!

Pliés should never be creaky! They must be rich and resilient. Moving up and down like a well-oiled piece of equipment, with an easy, fluid motion.

Stamp out creaky pliés!

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Secret #114:
 “There are no creaky pliés.”

Quote of the Day:
“When the door starts to creak it may be time to take it off the hinges. If things get rusted, life has to be called into question and matters re-evaluated. ( “In the doorway” )”
― Erik Pevernagie
