Wacky Wednesday Paddle

Wacky Wednesday Paddle

A fun way for students to practice spotting is any exercise involving paddle turns. It can be part of a character class or just a character combination, but either way helps perfect the art of spotting. And I am a big believer in adding “fun” to ballet classes.

Spotting is critical to success in almost all turning movements, so developing and perfecting this skill is important for students and professionals alike.

As an example of what I consider paddle turns, refer to the Link of the Day below.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Secret #14vv:
“Have students do paddle turns to practice spotting.”
