Fun Friday Feather

Fun Friday Feather

An image that works well for teaching slow, adagio type movements to children is this one: Move like a feather falling to earth. This can also be a great prop image if you bring an actual feather or something similar into the classrrom.

Students can observe how a feather moves as it drifts downward and then imitate this falling to earth movement with their bodies. It’s both fun and educational for them. They learn how to move slowly and deliberately through space.

And, as with so many things, this image works well for more advanced students too.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Secret #11p:
“Move like a feather falling to earth.”
