Fun Friday Floor Feeling

Fun Friday Floor Feeling

One of the secrets to a good pirouette is a good preparation. And that starts with a good plié. But often dancers are so focused on the turn itself they forget to really think about the plié.

Concentrate on feeling the floor. Really feel it. Press down into it (along with the necessary upward energy in the body). Make sure every inch of the bottoms of your feet make contact. No popping heels!

When you find this into-the-floor feeling, your pirouettes will automatically improve.

Feel the floor!

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Secret #16v:
“In plié, concentrate on feeling the floor.”
