Mad Monday Barrel

Mad Monday Barrel

Oh those squished arms in first position (fifth en avant)! It is so difficult to avoid and unpleasant to behold. And we all know there is no squishing in ballet.

Holding an imaginary beach ball is one way to prevent this, but here is another image: Imagine holding an empty barrel at the height of your rib cage. This is a heavier item and this heft may provide enough resistance for the position to work better.

Hold a barrel!

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Secret #6qqq:
“Imagine holding a barrel at rib cage height.”

“Most times, success does not come as tiny droplets of showers freely falling on every roof; it comes in heavy flows like a stream. Use the bigger dream barrels!”
