Marvelous Monday Spider Webs

Marvelous Monday Spider Webs

A common problem dancers have with balancing at the barre (or in the center) is the erroneous idea that a balance is static and completely still. I have written before about how a balance must be a living, breathing thing and not a stiff, rigid, brittle position.

An image that can help when balancing is to imagine your body and limbs supported and/or suspended by fine spider webs. These webs come from the ceiling but also from any and all directions where support might be needed.

This will help prevent the frozen stare type of balance that is never long for this world.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Secret #21ll:
“ When balancing, imagine spider webs supporting you.”
