Guest a bee blu 426 Posted August 11, 2003 Report Share Posted August 11, 2003 I need serious help. I am very flexible and can lift my leg 180 degrees to the front, side and back- as long as I am holding it up with my hand. At the barre, I can do developes to the side very nicely. However, whenever I attempt to do an adagio in centre, I lose my balance during the side developes: my hips get misaligned, my working leg turns in, and I fall off my standing leg. It would be funny if it weren't so frustrating/pathetic. About a week ago in class, my ballet teacher started yelling that I shouldn't be having problems with this step because I am so turned out usually. He tried to push me over on my leg but I couldn't do it! I ended up falling completely over. It was so embarrassing and frustrating that I started hysterically crying. It seems like nobody understands. I'm one of the more advanced students in my class, and it is so annoying to see younger kids doing developes better than me. Am I the only one who has problems with this step? Any advice on how to make it better? Please let me know![/font] Quote Link to comment
