Dick Posted March 28, 2003 Report Share Posted March 28, 2003 Hi, I have a problem with symmetry between my left and right sides. To some extent, this is quite normal : one cannot expect to do things with equal facility from one side to the other. But to what extent should one expect the end results to be the same from one side to the other? My problem arises from the fact that the gap between what I can do on one side and what I can do on the other side is increasing rapidly despite all my efforts to perform more or less equaly on both sides. Examples: I can do a fairly good triple pirouette en dehors, with decent landing, on my right side, but would'nt even dream of doing it on my left side. Same for arabesque en tournant, pirouette en dedans, tour en l'air, and so on. Seams that on one side, everything just comes out easy while on the other side, there is always some struggling involved. What should be one's realistic attitude towards symmetry, apart from trying to reach perfection as much as possible? Is there a technical level of dificulty past which achieving decent symmetry is no more a goal or a problem? To express it in some other way, in my mind right now, my right side is setting the standard and my left side is trying to catch up. Should I just relax, and work both sides equally and let the results be what they be? Or maintain the tension and push hard on my left side? Tanks for the help, Richard Quote Link to comment
