Fun Friday Leftovers

Fun Friday Leftovers

Well, here we are, on the day after Thanksgiving. A day that is likely filled with delicious leftovers. Yummmm.This made me think about places in ballet technique where you don’t want leftovers.

The major culprit for “ballet leftovers” is in grand battement, especially after arabesque. Because a grand battement here requires a tilt in the pelvis, often the dancer forgets to bring the pelvis back to its proper, neutral position when closing in fifth position. The “leftover” seat sticking up does not present a pretty picture!

Any time there is a necessary shift of the pelvis, it must be returned to its neutral position as soon as possible. Prevent ballet leftovers!

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets:

Ballet Secret #12e:  
Beware of ballet “leftovers” in grand battement.
