Bounce your plié relevé

If you wish to advance and perform center floor dancing combinations, you must learn to plié-relevé very quickly – as fast as a rubber ball bounces up. I call this PING-SLAM-BOUNCE. Learn how to connect the muscles from toes to hips so you can make a very fast demi-plié (PING) which takes the weight off your heels so you can SLAM them down on the floor which makes you BOUNCE up on half-toe. Try the class and you will feel the difference.

Adult ballet beginners capable of performing the exercises below. You should have a barre or a high-backed chair that is shoulder level for support. You must be warmed up, wearing proper ballet attire and shoes, either from the preceding class or on your own. There are no traveling steps, but you do need enough room to fully open both arms. Set AND TEST your camera so that Finis can see your entire body from head to toe, in profile.
