Developpe A La Seconde is a ballet technique in extending the leg to the side.

Strength, balance, control, awareness and of course flexibility are factors needed to extend the leg high, with grace. At the same time full control of the movement and holding the leg vertical is what all ballet dancers strive for.

A standard way to work the Developpe to forward, to the side or back into the Arabesque is through bar and partner flexibility drills. Practicing the technique over and over is often prescribed.
Most dancers improve Developpe A La Seconde using those, over long period of time. Our approach is different. Our program develops very specific flexibility using kinesiological stretching techniques.
At the same time the crucial short range contraction and awareness of which muscles do the work is build through reciprocal inhibition. This develops the skill much faster and safer than traditional stretch and do over method.

Developpe routine contains four steps. Each step allows the body to progress quickly in manageble increments, till full Developpe is mastered.

Start working your beautiful Developpe today with this program.
