Wacky Wednesday Tight Curl

Wacky Wednesday Tight Curl

One of the difficulties that can occur in a pirouette is that of a loose turning action. It’s like the difference between a tight curl in your hair or a relaxed curl.

The upward spiral of the pirouette must be small in circumference, not wide and wonky. Therefore, always imagine a tight curl when turning. This also helps create the speed needed, which tends to be slower if the turning circumference is wide – giving the pirouette a rather warped look. Scary.

And, as always, remember that the nice tight spiral contains both upward and downward energy.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Secret #14bbb:
“Imagine a tight curl, not a loose curl for pirouettes.”
