TYR Posted August 21, 2016 Share Posted August 21, 2016 What's the best, most insightful, most useful, most inspiring, funniest, or bitchiest technique correction you've ever received? I say received so you can't hype your own gems of wisdom, of course. So: You will post your favourite correction. If you feel you can, credit the teacher, but it's OK if you leave the arms out for now. Here's one from Nicola Simpson, last week: (I ask for a correction on turns to my weaker side) Keep your weight forwards. Always forwards. Don't let your head go back. (I mumble with incoherent bafflement) This means you must keep your hands forward in your port de bras so you can track them through 5th without letting your head go back. That way your plié tracking will be better as well. Why it's great: it worked! Also it hits like three important issues at once. And it's very non-obvious. I asked about turns and here we are marking port...but it makes total sense, because a turn has a plié/relévé movement. And I also noticed that we'd been working on just those issues all week.
