Does bringing your feet up to retire faster helps to maintain your balance easier? because i have difficulty maintaining my balance through a turn; i tend to wobble towards my supporting leg too much.

 

thanks for any advice.

Hello e1coli, and welcome to the Young Dancers' forum here on Ballet Alert! Online :D I know you have been a member for a long time, so it's nice that you have finally posted!

 

Yes, it is important to bring the working leg to the retiré position very quickly in your pirouettes. It should help to get you centered and on balance better. Practice finding your center on your supporting leg with the pirouette action but only doing 1/4 or 1/2 turns until you find the right action and speed of the working leg.

thank you for noticing that i've been a member for some time.

 

i've not been posting as i'm just an amateur and a Chinese, so just feeling a little inferior.

 

thanks for your reply, i'll practice non-stop

e1coli, all of the students on the board are amateur! :D That's why we are here, especially on the Young Dancers' forums. And we have students from all over the world, including China, so please feel very welcome here and do not hesitate to make posts and ask questions or express your opinions on other forums about performances you see, or books and videos, etc. If you have problems with pointe shoes, visit the Pointe Shoe Topics forum. There is a "Brag Board" if you have news to share about something good that happens in your ballet life, and, for teenagers there is a "Buddy Board", which is available after you have made 30 posts. On that forum you can talk to other teens and even exchange email addresses, as that one is a secure area that no one can see until they have been admitted there. So, we hope you will become a more active participant here. :)
