Martine van Hamel Teaches Développé en Effacé

When Martine van Hamel teaches a développé en effacé, she makes sure to bring her students' attention to their orientation in space. "It's important the dancers know which direction they're facing," she says, citing the occasional confusion over what a true effacé line looks like. "I ask, 'Are you facing the corner, the side or the front?'" she says. The hips and shoulders should be square to the corner, van Hamel notes, and the working leg stays directly in front of the hips during the développé.
