Wild Wednesday Identification

Wild Wednesday Identification

Ah those elusive inner thigh muscles. Dancers hear about them all the time and know it is important to find them and use them. But it isn’t easy. A muscle has to be toned to be felt, but without feeling it how can it become toned enough to feel?! It is a dilemma.

One way to identify these mysterious muscles is by doing a basic foot-in-hand stretch to a la seconde. Facing the mirror, try to increase the rotation in the working leg and notice the muscles you see engaging. It’s usually obvious.

Now that you’ve found them, all you have to do is use them so they will be easier to feel and find. Isn’t ballet fun?!

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Secret #3w:
“A  foot-in-hand stretch à la seconde helps identify the “underneath” thigh muscles.”
