buglady Posted September 28, 2002 Report Share Posted September 28, 2002 I recently found a new studio that is closer to home and that (so far) seems to challenge me more. Classes only started last week, but I noticed at the first class that the order of the barre excersises was quite different than I was used to. This instructor teaches the Checcetti method (sorry about the spelling!) which I am not terrible familiar with. It got me wondering, do different techniques tend to have characteristic orders at the barre? I had a hard time doing many things up to my full ability because I don't think my body was fully prepared. For instance, we did 2 sets of demi and grande plies, and then did a set of developes with "leg on the barre" stretches. Then we went back to tendus, tendu degage, rond de jambe, etc. I didn't feel my muscles were up to developes before I even did a tendu! Quote Link to comment
