pleiades Posted October 20, 2002 Report Share Posted October 20, 2002 I have been taught that pushing against the floor is very important in tendu. Just yesterday I was reading a bit about the Balanchine technique and apparently his philosophy was just the opposite. If I'm recalling correctly, the foot was supposed to 'skim' the floor rather than use it for resistance. I'm guessing that this attitude is in the interest of building speed? Is there a 'commonly accepted' school of thought regarding tendu and working with the floor? Quote Link to comment
