pleiades Posted July 27, 2003 Report Share Posted July 27, 2003 I've started trying, at my teacher's urging, to double my piques. It's not pretty. In fact it's so pathetically ugly that I'm actually losing my balance. My singles are fine, but when I double I either run out of momentum and land facing some obscure corner of the room, or throw myself off balance. Admittedly it's only been three classes worth of attempts, but I'd welcome any advice. Also, I've been trying to figure out why in the heck it is that I have absolutely no fear of pique arabesques on pointe, but pique releves to passe/retire frighten me. Clearly my apprehension is making them harder to do, and I'd be grateful for advice in this arena as well. Thanks! Quote Link to comment
