Super Saturday B’s Knees

Super Saturday B’s Knees
It’s Saturday and time to talk about the position known as “B Plus”.  This is the “resting” position used prior to, or in between other steps.  Often dancers will forget to put their knees together, and the working foot will turn in – that is, the top of the toes will be resting on the ground.
What should happen is this:  the knee area is “kissing” and the rotation in the hip sockets is engaged so that the working leg turns out and this  correctly places the edge of the big toe of the working foot on the ground – not the top of the toes.
So in B Plus, kiss the knees and rotate the legs in the hips socket! 

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets:

Secret #19a 
“In B Plus, remember to kiss the knees and rotate the legs.”
