BlackbirdBallerina Posted April 30, 2003 Report Share Posted April 30, 2003 Hey! I have always had trouble with my arabesque turns, and recently I've learned some new things that I'm thinking might help. But I'd like the moderator's opinion, and any other suggestions, because for some reason I can do pretty good attitudes but bad arabesques. I heard one teacher whom I actually didn't like much say that you need to be nore over the ball of your foot when you're getting ready to turn because that's where you'll relevé. This helps my other turns soemtimes too. And, I've heard this correction before, but for some reason it sunk in this time... When you turn to the right, think of your left shoulder coming around so you keep your shoulders over your hips. So this was very helpful to me, but I still struggle with arabesque turns, so I thought I'd post so maybe it will help other people, and the moderators might have some additional ideas. Thanks!
