Corrections That Recur

Show Summary Details


This chapter presents a list of corrections that recur in many of Balanchine's classes. Among these are that women should always keep their legs together on changement and entrechat quatre; on cabriole fouetté, from effacé front to first arabesque, remember to keep the back up on the landing, and plié softly with the knee over the toes of the supporting leg; on all arabesques, the head must be up; and on sissonnes, open both legs and hold the top of the jump.
