Fun Friday Hot Wheels

Fun Friday Hot Wheels

The shape of the arms is the same in most positions: only slightly bent, forming the shape of an elongated curve. When the arms are in à la seconde, the elbow is higher than the wrist, but slightly lower than the shoulder. The elbow "point" faces the back wall.

The easiest way to imagine this position is like this: as a sloped roadway for toy vehicles, like Matchbox cars or Hot Wheels. When the arm is correctly positioned, the car can roll from shoulder to fingertips. If the arm is drooping, the car will fall off at the elbow.

So race away!

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets:

Ballet Secret #6dd:  
Imagine a Hot Wheels toy car rolling down the arm from the shoulder to the fingers.
