New YouTube Video: Double Assemblé


Check out my latest YouTube video focusing on the grand assemblé en tournant. It is my favorite ballet step, more informally known as a double assemble, a notable step found in numerous male variations. The step can be a highlight of a variation when done well as the dancer slices through the air. As a dancer many years ago, I struggled with the step, often off kilter in the air, stumbling on landing. Given my less than successful experience with the step, I really tune in when I see guys excel with it on stage. This video provides a description of the double assemble with top-notch examples that I can only dream of.
