Wacky Wednesday Both Legs

Wacky Wednesday Both Legs

You may remember Ballet Secret #15dd: All beats involve both legs and have a rebound. Well, today’s idea is just a bit simpler: always, and I mean always, beat using both legs.

This may sound simple, but due to the nature of learning and remembering beats, we tend to think about only one leg beating. For instance, in an entrechat quatre, we often focus on the front leg (the one that will also land in front). This helps us finish in the correct place, but does nothing to help the beats themselves.

Instead, whenever you are doing beats, or learning new ones, concentrate on doing them with both legs. Always.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Ballet Secret 15dddd:
“Always beat with both legs.”
