I know it's a bad idea to get out of shape before summer, and I know it would be best to keep steadily improving, but it's so hard for me to work here. My teachers are constantly angry with me, because they think I'm not trying. They encourage us to force turn out, especially in extensions to the side, which forces me to open my hips. My opinion on this is that it's more important to build up enough strength in the standing leg to be able to push it further to the side with correct alignment. My teachers were all trained in Russia, where they were taught that the only correct second position is with 180 degree turnout.
I would appreciate any advice for findint enough motivation to get through my last month here. I would just take open classes somewhere else, but I'm committed to two more performances. Thanks.
