Mad Monday Bottle Turns

Mad Monday Bottle Turns

Here is a fun prop to help your pirouettes.

Hold a water bottle (containing water) in your following hand as your prepare for a pirouette. Feel the downward weight of the bottle and resist it upward with your arm and body. Then, during the actual pirouette, switch the bottle to your other hand. What fun!

This helps you feel resistance up and down as well as maintaining control of the arms (keeping the hands centered in front of the body).

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Secret #20cc:
 “Use a water bottle and switch hands in a pirouette.
