Fun Friday Helium Puffs

Fun Friday Helium Puffs

Dancers are familiar with this age-old problem: the drooping elbow syndrome. Gasp! This makes the whole upper body look weak, and in fact, actually does make the position weaker. Sigh.

But take heart! Here is the solution: imagine wearing a garment that has puffed sleeves. That’s right – puffed sleeves. Now imagine that the upper part of the sleeves are filled with helium. This gently lifts the upper arm into the proper position. Voila! No more drooping elbows.

Puffed sleeve power.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Secret #6rrr:
“Imagine wearing puffed sleeves filled with helium.”
