Skittl1321 Posted September 10, 2010 Report Share Posted September 10, 2010 I took a class recently that was geared towards those who had never taken a ballet class before (most barre work was done facing the barre, and much in parallel, slowly moving to 1st position). In center we held our arms in preperatory position for tendus in 1st position, and the teacher reminded us to shape our arms like we were holding an egg (not a ball), and to have our middle fingers touching. I've never heard of fingers touching. Is this common in a style/method I'm unfamilar with (and which one) or is this likely just an aide to beginners to be aware of their placement?
