On Ballet: Saturday Class Notes

I finally figured out what my glissade-assemblé problem is.

For some strange reason, I sometimes throw a change of feet into the middle of my glissade where one is not needed. Then the assemblé assembles in the wrong direction.

This is basically the same thing as putting the right foot in when you should be putting the right foot in in the Hokey-Pokey.

No disassemble!

No disassemblé!

I’m not sure why I do this. When I don’t (and when I can prevent my brain from immediately going, “Did I do it right?!”) it links up to the assemblé rather nicely.

Funny How That Works.

So, yeah. I guess I’ve got the glissade-assemblé sorted.

For now.
