Knees and Grande Plies


Recommended Posts

Miss Leigh,


I know we talked several years back about my previous knee injuries and not doing grande plies, especially in 4th position. After my first class back on Monday I have a question. I did the grande plies in all positions except 4th. 5th was pretty painful too. Should I just avoid all grandes in all positions or just skip 4th and 5th? I am even older now and even more decrepit.....especially the knees! :grinning:

Hi Wendy,


I would avoid all except 2nd position, as long as that one does not hurt. I have found that not doing grand pliés in the other positions has not been a problem for me for many, many years now.

Thank you very much for the quick reply, Miss Leigh. Will put this into practice Thursday night!
