Plié-relevé correctly:

Keep your focus on the sequential action of your foot. Your body should already be placed over the supporting toe when you complete the demi-plié. Keep the supporting thigh and knee placed—do not pull them back towards your heel—press down on the floor so that your foot rolls through the arch to the half-toe. Keep pressing the ball of your foot and toes against the floor until you stand straight on your standing leg. Let your weight drop through your bones all the way down into the floor. Enjoy the security of balancing solidly on one foot on releve!
