Hands raised to shoulder height, keep a proper horizontal position. If they raise above that level will inevitably rise shoulders. If the shoulders to keep in place, and raise my arms above shoulder level, impossible to maintain the correct line: you should be down elbows. Hands, dropped slightly below the shoulder level, may not violate the right line, but they will seem passive. The third position: the arms are raised up and form an oval above his head. Brushes close together, as in the preparatory position, and in I position. Palms facing down. Situation previous fingers.The instructor must ensure that elbows were not coming forward, and hands did not drop. Hands should be over your head, the more unacceptable that the hand came head. They should be slightly ahead of the head, which is mandatory (Particularly for men)because when playing a hand back the development of shoulder muscles are raised, and it appears hunched shoulders,and in profile position of the figures face locked hands.

The correctness of the hands in the III position can be verified. For this,not looking upneed to look up;if this can be seen the little finger, hence, III position is correct, but if you can see all the fingers, hands should be given back a bit, so you can see only the little finger. If the little fingers not visible, then his hands went back too far and they should move forward.Such checks should be carried out before long as students do not possess skill to correctly determine the position of the hands in the III position in the mirror and sensation.

Other provisions of hands. In addition to the three listed items in the classroom and in character dance there are intermediate position of his hands or, as they are called, polpozitsii. For example, between a preparatory position, and I stand (Approximately waist level), forward and to the side, between II and III positions in rounded or elongated position. The situation in the hands of arabesques quite different than positions or in positions with curved line. In arabesques both hands stretched out freely, without stress. Palms facing down. Hands and fingers still a straight line of hands. Pins grouped together: the large close to the middle. The same hand position retained in other positions, such as attitude allonge etc.
