Wild Wednesday Wide

Wild Wednesday Wide

Whenever a dancer is feeling a bit uncertain or insecure in a particular combination of steps or piece of choreography something interesting happens. The steps get smaller. That’s right. Suddenly the dancer is not moving through space effectively, and instead is almost tiptoeing. Scary.

Remind yourself to take big, wide steps. Stretch the legs and feet fully. This also serves to make the preparation steps much more effective. The muscles are now fully elongated and more powerful. It also helps relax the body. Tiny, tense movements are never productive.

Think wide this Wednesday.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Secret #7rrr:
“Take wide steps, not tiny ones.”
