Fun Friday Ballet Superpower

Fun Friday Ballet Superpower

Ah the lowly, unappreciated tendu. It is actually Ballet Superpower #2. You will remember that Ballet Superpower #1 is plié (Ballet Secret #2u: One Ballet Superpower is plié.)

Consider all the things tendus do. They strengthen the feet. They train the dancer to articulate the feet. They appear, like secret agents,  in every degagé, every grand battement, and every single step where the foot leaves the floor thus preventing a floppy, unpointed foot. What a glorious step!

Never underestitmate the superpower of a tendu!

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Secret #4y:
“ Ballet Superpower #2 is tendu.”
