Just say “NO” to Spot!

Posted on Posted in Uncategorized

The key to an efficient spot is to activate the full range of flexibility in the neck. Rather than passively ‘leaving’ the head front and then coming all the way around, the dancer should begin the spot by actively engaging the head in one direction as the body turns, then actively snapping the other direction to complete the spot, much like a strong shake of the head ‘no’. In this way, the force of the spot is maximized from start to finish, and the neck remains dynamically flexible rather than stiffly held.(keeps your head level)
