Fun Friday Vroom

Fun Friday Vroom

Dancers are often told that the brush of the working foot in grand battement is important. They may not always know why, but they hear this directive quite often.

The under-circle action of the working foot against the floor provides the impetus (push) for the grand battement. Try the battement without brushing the foot and you’ll feel the difference.

To make the brush more fun and effective, imagine the vroom sound an engine makes as it revs up, ready for speed. Now apply that sound to the brush of the grand battement. Vroom, vroom!

Have a fun Friday!

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Secret #12h:
“Imagine making a vroom sound as the foot brushes the floor in grand battement.”
