Wacky Wednesday Coin

Wacky Wednesday Coin

Here’s another way to visualize pirouettes.

Imagine a shiny new coin, spinning on its edge. It maintains its shape (of course) – solid and firm – but most importantly, it is FLAT. This is how you want to feel in a turn, flat with no extraneous things sticking out, down or up. You shouldn’t feel like a bent coin or one that was flattened on a train track.

To take it one step further, take a coin and actually spin it. This will solidify the image in your mind.

Have fun with it!

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Secret #14xx:
“Imagine how a coin spins on its edge.”
