A terrific tendu tutorial!

Darlene's Dance Academy
The Ballet Blog
Tendus are one of the most important steps in ballet, with most ballet movements incorporating tendus or a derivative of this movement. Think of a glissade, it's basically a couple of tendus with a little jump. So getting it right in its most basic form is going to help you immensely. It's probably the most important thing to get right. Being able to execute a good quality tendu will ward off a multitude of injuries and you will find that your technique seriously improves. This video was made in 2005 yet poorly executed tendus are still one of the most common errors that we see in dancers of all ages. Performing the perfect tendu takes a lot of work, patience and concentration. You have to know what you're doing and know why you're doing it. That's why we have taken one of our old video explanations that Lisa created wen launching The Perfect Pointe Book where it breaks down the tendu into several different parts and talk about how each part of the movement affects your ankle and leg. The most vital muscle group that we talk about is the group of muscles that we call your intrinsic foot muscles, (those that start and end within the foot). Having good coordination and control over these muscles will unlock a lot of potential in your feet and make you much more aware of how your feet are moving. With good awareness comes the ability to really express with your body. Feet and they way they are articulated in ballet can say so much and can make all the difference to the emotion of the dance. Take a look at the following video and let us know what you think! Have a read of the associated article: https://www.theballetblog.com/portfolio/how-to-perform-the-perfect-tendu
