8 Directions of the Body
15 July 2013
There are 3 main directions out of which comes the 8 Directions of the Body.
With Right Foot Front (the same can be done with Left Foot Front)
The following are the 8 Directions of the Body in the whole ballet syllabus from which ballet becomes 3-dimensional.
I have incorporated them into a somewhat logical sequence for ease of memorization:
• 3 directions with leg pointing to the front
• 2 pointing to the side
• 3 pointing to the back
With Right Leg (the same can be done with Left Leg)
