Wacky Wednesday Cellophane

Wacky Wednesday Cellophane

A common problem with pliés is when the torso doesn’t move straight up and down and instead leans forward, or tilts sideways or in many other ways fails to maintain a straight up and down alignment. Not good.

Imagine doing every plié inside an elevator shaft made of cellophane. If the body leans forward and the derriere sticks out, the cellophane will tear. Instead, imagine moving cleanly up and down this fragile, sheer elevator shaft with no deviation – just like an actual elevator.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Ballet Secret #16kk:
“Imagine a cellophane elevator shaft.”
