Fun Friday Sick Seconds

Fun Friday Sick Seconds

We are all aware of the dreaded “sickled foot”. That is, a foot that stretches too far and instead of being a lovely pointed foot, it resembles the farm implement called the sickle.

One of the areas where the sickled foot is frequently seen is a tendu in a la second, or second. This is what I refer to as a sickled, or sic(k) second. The poor tendu foot is sick instead of stretched and beautifully pointed.

Therefore, beware of sic(k) seconds –all the time – but especially in tendu.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Ballet Secret #3bb:
“Beware of sic(k) seconds.”
