Wild Wednesday Seam Zippers

Wild Wednesday Seam Zippers

You may have heard of the sewing implement called seam rippers. Well, today we are talking about seam zippers.

In order to keep the legs straight (visually straight if hyper-extended), it helps to imagine that the seams running up the back of some tights as long zippers. If you don’t wear this brand of tights, imagine it anyway. The seam zippers must be pulled up for straight knees to be achieved.

We are all familiar with the sensation of zipping up a pair of jeans, so any time you are working on keeping the knees straight and strong, imagine zipping them up, following the line of the seam on the back of your tights.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets:

Ballet Secret #1uu:  
Imagine zippers where the seams on the tights are.
