Wacky Wednesday Backwards

Wacky Wednesday Backwards

Often when dancers are having difficulty with a step, the answer lies not with the step itself. Instead, the problem is frequently the step or steps that come before it.

So go backwards. Make sure the preceding step (often a plié) is as perfectly executed as possible. It should be rich and full and never looked upon as a secondary thing. Unfortunately, this is often the case.

If the preceding step is a glissade or other traveling step, be sure it isn’t “short”. The legs and feet should reach out fully, allowing the step to efficiently aid in producing the one(s) that follow.

Think backwards!
