SeaMonkey Posted December 20, 2005 Report Share Posted December 20, 2005 I'm curious as to the proper arm placement in a series of fast turns across the floor. I've always been taught to keep the arms rounded for soutenou and chaines. I've seen a few dancers on stage, when doing chaines, soutenou, and piques, will have their arms a la second, with the palms down and arms slightly bent. The first time I saw this, I thought it was a choreographic choice, but now I'm wondering if its simply a difference in training? We had a group of Russian trained girls take class with us and their grand port de bras was very different from ours (they came out to a flat back) I will always do what the teacher prefers, I'm just curious after seeing this a few times.
