Wacky Wednesday Electric Strips

Wacky Wednesday Electric Strips

In the category of The Cruel School of Ballet comes the idea of electric strips sewn into leotards in the abdominal area. These handy-dandy strips provide a mild electrical shock every time stomach muscles are allowed to “hang out”.

Since the abdominal muscles are notorious for being lazy and not wanting to work when they should, these leotards would provide the encouragement needed to keep them on task. Now I just have to find a way to turn them on and off so dancers won’t be consistently shocked – in between combinations, for example.

At any rate, during class exercises, pretend you are wearing one of these Cruel School leotards as a reminder to engage the abdominal muscles.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets:

Ballet Secret #16t:  
“ Imagine wearing a leotard with “electric strips” in the abdominal area.”
