Fun Friday Spotlight

Fun Friday Spotlight

Earlier this month I talked about not dropping the chest during pliés. This “chest caving” posture is also common in many other things in ballet.

Since the upper chest is almost always open (never caved in), it helps to imagine a spotlight coming down from above and shining onto and across your upper chest. Feel the warmth of this light across your collar bones. If you were wearing a necklace it would catch the light and sparkle brilliantly.

This light is always shining on your upper chest area, except when you are doing a cambré or something similar.

Let the light shine!

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Ballet Secret #16mm:
“Imagine a spotlight shining down on your chest.”
