Mad Monday Following Shoulder

Mad Monday Following Shoulder

In piqué turns, spotting is essential. It helps prevent dizziness and keeps the dancer on the proper path, thus avoiding problems like falling into the orchestra pitJ.

Here is a new way to think about spotting piqué turns. Focus on spotting over the following shoulder. That is, if you are turning to the right, you think of spotting over the left shoulder, and vice versa.

It may seem strange at first, but I think you will find that it is very workable and effective.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Ballet Secret #14yyy:
“Spot over the following shoulder.”
