Changing Positions at the Barre

L' Allegro

Recommended Posts

Is it considered 'wrong' to change the placement of the leg closest to the barre when you're opening from first position to second?




(an afterthought... my days on the 13-16 forum are nearly over. :) How unbelievable is that? It's like... like... drat, I can't find anything to compare it to. :yes: )

L'Allegro, that is a matter of method. In some it is allowed and in others it is not. Personally, I do move it, as I find that the distance from the barre is so important, and it's not the same if you do not adjust it for those two positions. However, that is just my theory, and I'm quite sure that others will have differing opinions. :yes:
