Mad Monday Word

Mad Monday Word

Sometimes a single word is all it takes to unlock a new sensation and improve technique.

Today’s word is elongate. The definition from the Merriam-Webster dictionary is: “to draw out to greater length; lengthen; extend”. I can think of many instances where elongating could be beneficial in ballet. Elongate the spine, elongate the feet, elongate the neck, etc.

In other words, elongate is another way of saying “stretch”. And dancers know all about that.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Secret #30a:
Elongate is a great word for improving posture.”
