Improving Plié

Recommended Posts

Hello

I always slouch and can't keep my back straight when I do a deeper demi pile. But my teacher just told me not to do it too deep at first but I still want to improve. Any exercise I can work on it?

Yes, Hello, there is, and it is quite simple!  As you begin to bend your knees you need to feel like you are going UP....NOT DOWN!  Bending the knees is not a downward movement of the body. The entire torso should resist upward. Even in a grand plié!  The body will not "slouch" if you are busy lengthening upwards. :)
