Fun Friday Men

Fun Friday Men

Here is a fun and easy way for female dancers to improve their jumps: jump with the men. You can do this in any class where the male dancers have their own separate group (with corresponding slower tempo music).

Or, actually take a men’s class. These classes focus on strengthening the muscles necessary for higher, more powerful jumps and will also work on pirouettes and other turns. I don’t recommend that female dancers do this too frequently, since we don’t want to build our muscles to the same degree as men, but an occasional class can be beneficial.

Or, simpler still, jump behind or beside the best jumper in the class. Fun!

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Ballet Secret #16bb:
“Jump with the men or take a men’s class to improve jumps.”
