I know we have been discussing pictures lately- but I was going through some of the 2003 YAGP ones, and I found one I thought was a really cool position, and the other I think is ACTUALLY a good arabesque, a high one, but it's not alabesque! Let me know what you think!


This is the cool one:

No comment on the "cool" one, but the "arabesque" one is a problem because her hip is so far up that she is actually OVER rotated, causing a very poor line of the back leg. Notice that you can see her heel.

Yeah, I see what Ms Leigh means about the heel. And the "cool one" is rather gymnastic like for a ballet number, unless she was doing a contemporary piece
