Balanchine the Teacher

University Press of Florida

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.

Keywords:   ballet, dance, George Balanchine, changement, entrechat quatre, cabriole fouetté, arabesque, sissonnes
