Wacky Wednesday Flex

Wacky Wednesday Flex

Having problems with certain steps? Trouble feeling the correct muscles or difficulty feeling specific sensations – like “finding” the inner thigh muscles? I may have a simple solution.

Try doing a few barre exercises with a flexed foot. Try it in tendu, degagé, rond de jambe – just about anything. This shakes up the usual routine and allows you to feel different muscles.

Also, add some grand battements with both flexed and pointed feet, and do some in attitude too. This is very helpful for locating those pesky, elusive, inner thigh muscles.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Ballet Secret #21ll:
“Flexing the foot will provide different sensations.”
