Mad Monday Bookends

Mad Monday Bookends

Here is another way to think about pliés and jumps.

We all know how important it is to land a jump in a good plié (anything else is really scary). But sometimes the initiating plié isn’t given the care and respect it deserves to produce a good jump in the first place.

Therefore, think of pliés as bookends for any jump. There must be one before and one after each jump- and they are equally important. Forgetting either one produces the same result as having only a single bookend try to support  a line of books – crash!

Jump bookends!
From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Ballet Secret #15fff:
“For jumps, remember plié bookends.”
