Wacky Wednesday Pisa

Wacky Wednesday Pisa

Sometimes balancing in passé is achieved even when the alignment isn’t perfect. This is simply because the dancer’s weight is evenly distributed  - if slightly tilted – or, in rare cases due to the sheer will of the dancer to make it happen regardless.

I’ve even seen dancers pirouette with a slight lean in their posture. It gives the turn a curious, warped look. Not something that is desired in ballet.

Therefore, avoid leaning tower of Pisa passés please.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Secret #18p:
“There are no Pisa passés.”

Quote of the Day:
“Sure, the Leaning Tower of Pisa leaned like everyone else said it would, the mountains of Tibet were more beautiful than you had ever expected, and the Pyramids of Egypt stood mysteriously in the sea of sand like in the pictures; yet is it the environment or rather the openness in mindset, that makes up the elusive essence of happiness that we experience when we travel?”
― Forrest Curran
