B plus, in front
Posted 26 May 2002 - 05:16 AM
Carlotta Grisi is seen in the same pose holding grapes from the harvest, in 'Giselle'.
The pose comes back in Balanchine's 'Square Dance'.
Does anyone know the proper name for this position and anything about it's history?

The position seems to express something earnest or humble. Maybe it was an expression of simple femininity in those times.
I think Mr. Balanchine gave the "B+" position it's name. Does anyone know that to be a fact?
