Port de bras

Recommended Posts


Hi everyone starting to think about my goals for next year and I really need to work on my port de bras! I need to work on strengthening my lats and arms which I am doing at the moment. My question is should there be an element of tension in the arms when dancing? When I was younger I danced with a lot of tension and now I have managed to loosen up a bit however I’m thinking that my arms are too ‘soft’ however when I put some resistance in them my teachers usually say they look too stiff!! Any port de bras tips are much appreciated

Without seeing you, it is difficult to gove you specific exercises or thi gs for you to work on. I advise you to ask for extra help from a teacher who tells you your arms are too stiff.
