some notes on brisée (devant)

About asher

Me in a nutshell: Standard uptight ballet boy. Trapeze junkie. Half-baked choreographer. Budding researcher. Transit cyclist. Terrible homemaker. Getting along pretty well with bipolar disorder. Fabulous. Married to a very patient man. Bachelor of Science in Psychology (2015). Proto-foodie, but lazy about it. Cat owner ... or, should I say, cat own-ee? ... dog lover. Equestrian.

  1. For me this comes under “stuff that happened on intensive week but God help you if dynamite or cap’n marmite suddenly calls for one now”

    • I was having the same problem for a long time—brisée almost never comes up in class, probably because everyone’s terrified of it, but it shows up in advanced class from time to time, at intensives, and in auditions, at which point I’d grit my teeth and approximate as hard as possible.

      Fortunately, BW takes requests, so now we do it all the time in his class 😀
