Arabesque Picture


Recommended Posts

There is probably a forum for this already, but I have a question regarding arabesque pictures and auditions.


Is it appropriate for a 13 year-old (almost 14) to use an arabesque picture on flat in pointe shoes for an audition? Or would it be better to do it on pointe?


Thank you!

Okay, I took some good ones today. Thanks for the reply!

On some websites for auditions, they will have requirements. For example, on one of the websites of an SI I'm looking at, it says that an arabesque picture on demi-pointe or pointe is acceptable.

On pointe would look more attractive. It also pushes your arabesque up a bit. But it depends on whether your pointe is good (which I'm sure it is)

How does being en pointe push your arabesque up a bit?

If the Summer Intensive you are auditioning for did not specify pointe or demi I would assume either is aceptable, however pointe demonstarates a dancer's ability. The general rule of thumb is if you are to execute a clean arabesque on pointe in center than do so in the picture!
