Wacky Wednesday Sleeves

Wacky Wednesday Sleeves

Droopy arms are a common problem in ballet. Here’s a prop that can help.

Put on a long-sleeved jacket or shirt and notice how the arms lengthen naturally as they slide into the sleeves. If the arms are limp or droopy, it is difficult to get the shirt on.

Now imagine that same long feeling as you shape the arms in second. The arms are curved slightly, but the energy is the same – it just follows the gentle curve.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Secret #20bb:
“Use a shirt or jacket to illustrate lengthening the arms.”
