Susanne Posted August 16, 2003 Report Share Posted August 16, 2003 Reading Jaanas post and also Buglady's (in the buddy board about the Richmond intensive) made me think of my own far from satisfying pirouettes. My problem is that there are two ways for me... I "pop" up in a passe and hold it or I turn without reaching the passé stage until into 1/4 of the turn. reading that buglady hears the teachers voice saying "don't try to turn, the passé will make the turn" (or something similar) made me realise that I don't know how to turn in a passé - I just stand there. Is there any good way to "think"? Because I realise that physically you have to take off for the turn and not just pop up to a passé, and I guess that the key with the take off is to find your passé fast enough preferrably in the first 1/8 of the turn. But how do I work on my mind? I'm thinking of tips of "lifting with your hamstrings when doing a developpé to the front" kind. Quote Link to comment
