Wacky Wednesday Toaster Tendues

Wacky Wednesday Toaster Tendues

A toaster is a wonderful invention. It makes perfectly browned, crispy slices of bread with the touch of a button. But toasters have no place in tendues.

Tendues never leave the floor (because if they do, they are no longer a tendu, but a degage). But unfortunately, tendues have a terrible tendency to leave the floor at the last second – the moment they reach a full stretch. Scary.

This last moment lift is when you get the dreaded Toaster Tendu. The foot pops off the floor like toast coming out of a toaster. This must be avoided. The foot, including the big toe, must maintain constant contact with the floor. Period.

Stamp out Toaster Tendues!
