Fun Friday Corner

Fun Friday Corner

Fouettés and à la seconde turns are fun and challenging. The most important thing is to maintain a constant position when in second, and use the plié. No surprise here.

But something that may surprise you is that the plié (and in fouettés the plié with the extension from attitude to devant) happens as the dancer faces the corner. That’s right and you can see it in today’s video below – if you aren’t distracted by watching her pirouettes!

Anyway, in à la seconde turns and fouettés, the plié happens as the dancer faces the corner, not directly front.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Secret #14uu:
“In à la seconde turns or fouettés, plié facing the corner, not directly front.”
