Fun Friday Open Window

Fun Friday Open Window

Although this image is a great way to teach pliés to children, it works for all ages.
It’s pretty self-explanatory: open the window when you plié, and close it when the legs straighten.

Emphasize that the window must be broadly open, so one could look out and see everything clearly (hence engaging a turned out position). When the window closes, the knees must be fully elongated: don’t leave the window partially open.

Have fun with it: open the window, close the window!

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Secret #2ff:
“Think of open the window, close the window to teach pliés.”
