Wacky Wednesday Toaster

Wacky Wednesday Toaster

One of the biggest problems with pas de chat is maintaining the turn-out, especially on the following leg. The leading leg is usually okay, but that second leg – whew!

I return again to one of my favorite images: a toaster. If you imagine your pas de chat jumping into a toaster (one that is unplugged, of course), then the legs will stay turned out. Otherwise they won’t fit in the slot.

If several pas de chats are done in a sequence, you can imagine each one going into the toaster, and then popping out of the toaster.

Toaster Turn-out Pas de Chats!

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Secret #15uuu:
“Pas de chat like you are jumping into a toaster.”
