Improving Penchée

Hi everybody!  Today’s blog post is about penchée, which is considered one of the most beautiful but difficult steps in all of ballet.  Let’s get started!


Summary of tips

I won’t be doing a too in-depth blog post for this because it’s tech week and I have absolutely no time, so here’s my tips:

  • Stretch the hamstring of your supporting leg.
  • Maintain the position of the back and leg as you go downwards – don’t release and break the line!
  • Use the inner thigh of your working leg to help you get the turned out line and lengthened position.
  • Feel a connection between your head and your working toes.
  • Reach upwards with your working toes to help make room for a split.
  • Stretch your splits.
