What is epaulment?


Recommended Posts

I see this on the score sheet for YAGP and I'm unclear as to what it is. Does it have something to do with moving your shoulders? please clarify.


thank you.

Yes, it is, literally, shouldering. It involves moving the shoulders separate from the lower half of the body, and includes the use of the head, usually turning or inclining over the front, or downstage, shoulder. It really is what makes the movements in ballet look more finished and artistic. :)
