Wild Wednesday Seat

Wild Wednesday Seat

Understanding how far the body should angle (turn) in positions like croisé is difficult for many students. Most dancers realize they shouldn’t face directly to the side, but often they still turn too far. The actual amount of turn is minimal, and that’s what makes it problematic.

The simplest answer is this: if any part of the seat can be seen in the mirror, the  body has turned too far. Instead, dancers should see both hip bones, not just one, in the mirror.

Two hips, no seat!

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Secret #5h:
“In angled positions like croisé, the seat should never be visible in the mirror.”
