SwanQueen Posted April 30, 2003 Report Share Posted April 30, 2003 I have just recently started taking some of the lower classes' barre without the barre. Its amazing how much you discover about how strong your technique really is! One thing I have noticed is that when I do tendu to the back, I collapse in my back and it causes me to turn in and not really put my leg behind me. Is this because my weight is on my heel? My teacher worked with me a lot on it yesterday and I can do it right when I do a really slow tendu, but when I'm actually doing an exercise, it always collapses. I have a lot of trouble getting my hips even in general. I don't have a lot of turnout so I tend to sink down into my supporting hip and put my weight on my heel. I know this is bad, but what can I think of to help me with this technique issue? Any advice would be helpful. Thanks! Quote Link to comment
