Fun Friday Tennis Prop

Fun Friday Tennis Prop

Props are useful in the ballet class, and today’s idea involves the readily available tennis ball. These are useful in several ways, but today let’s talk about how they can help dancers locate those elusive “inner thigh” muscles.

Simply have students lie on the floor on their stomachs, with their legs turned out and feet in first position. Place a tennis ball between the thighs, lengthen the legs and at the same time apply pressure to the tennis ball using the muscles of the thighs.

Presto! Inner thighs located.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Ballet Secret #2011:
“Use a tennis ball to help locate the inner thighs.”
