Mad Monday Magic Broomstick

Mad Monday Magic Broomstick

You will remember Ballet Secret #15aaaa: A grand jeté has two grand battements. Well, today’s idea is similar.

When you do a grand jeté or a saut de chat, the leg that leads must battement up, out and parallel to the floor, while (at almost the same time) the back leg battements into its position (also parallel to the floor). Voila! You have created a split in the air or a magic broomstick!

The torso rides on top of this flying broomstick as you travel through space. Appropriate for this time of year especially…

Grand battement broomsticks!

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Ballet Secret #15bbbb:
“Imagine riding a magic broomstick in a grand jeté.

Quote of the Day:
“Listen, Harry can I have a go on it? Can I?"
"I don't think anyone should ride that broom just yet!" said Hermoine shrilly.
Harry and Ron looked at her.
"What d'you think Harry's going to do with it - sweep the floor?" said Ron.”
― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
