Guest Medora Posted May 22, 2003 Report Share Posted May 22, 2003 When doing a partnered pirouette, should the leg in retire be in exactly the same place it is in a non-supported pirouette? I am not a good turner, as you all already know and some of you have seen ;) , so naturally this is my big pitfall in partnering also. I know where it should be from looking at professionals on tapes, in front of the knee maybe slightly below it. Also, I notice that some of the professionals seem to slightly overcross their leg almost. Is that the right position? I ask because my teacher is always scolding me, "lower your passe, lower you passe!" I know why, she doesn't want me to hit my partner, and I obviously don't want to either. So, when I do the turns, should I think of putting my retire under my knee, or what should I do? Thanks! Quote Link to comment
