Guest BattementCloche Posted April 16, 2003 Report Share Posted April 16, 2003 ‘The time has come,’ the Walrus said ‘To talk of many things: Of shoes—and ships—and sealing wax— Of cabbages—and kings— Of why your knees ache while you dance A spirited Irish jig— Of hurting legs—and swollen feet— And why your Big Toe is big. :) When I do Irish dances (for St.Patrick’s Day, Scottish for Robbie Burns Day), my knees always hurt a lot. Is this because there’s so much jumping, or could I be doing something wrong? In my solo I have a lot of jumps (i.e. one part: chassé, assemblé back, 3 assemblés in a row, jumped echappé to second, jump to cou de pied, ballonée [sp?], repeat, assemblé, pas de basque, pas de bourée piqué, pas de papillon, cabriole, run run run, 3 petit jétés, ballonée, temps levée [sp?], temps levée….) but my knees don’t hurt after or during it – could it be that I’m just correcting a mistake I was making before? —————————— *~*~Rosalind~*~* or ~*~Beatrice~*~ ***All the world’s a stage…*** —William Shakespeare— ***To be or not to be: that is the question…*** —From Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare Quote Link to comment
