Wild Wednesday Hamstrings

Wild Wednesday Hamstrings

Are the phrases “Pull up” or “Squeeze the seat” not working for you? Do you still struggle with finding the necessary lift to put you securely “over you leg”? You’re not alone. Getting over your leg is a constant struggle for most dancers, and some days are better than others. Sigh.

Let’s try a  different image today. Imagine lifting your hamstrings. You know, that muscle group that lives on the back of your leg. In one of my previous blogs: http://balletwebb.blogspot.com/search?q=hamstrings , you can see a diagram of this area of the thigh.

Try imagining a lift in this area and see if it works better for you.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Secret #1xxx:
“Think of lifting the hamstrings.”
