Mad Monday Parallel

Mad Monday Parallel

In classrooms that have portable barres, I always tell my students to place the barre parallel to the mirror. This allows them to see themselves from the side and makes it easier (and more apparent) to see and correct errors in alignment.

Also, in barre exercises that angle in and out, students can watch their supporting leg and foot and monitor whether they are pivoting on the ball of the foot, or (gasp!) the heel.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Secret #16y:
“Place the barre parallel to the mirror.”
