psavola Posted September 10, 2003 Report Share Posted September 10, 2003 There was a thread on the Men's Forum a while ago about the goals they set for next year, and I thought people here might also enjoy listing their balletic goals. For myself, during the next autumn I want to: 1. Improve my placement. I have learned much about finding my center, aligning my pelvis and the feel of verticality in spine during summer, and I want to maintain and expand on that knowledge integrating it to all my dancing. 2. Improve rotation. I'm not rotating evenly, and often lose turnout when I'm concentrating on something else. In the coming year I will try to make concentrating on my rotation a habit. 3. Lose excess tension from my upper body. My dancing looks too athletic. Everybody can see the effort I'm making, which is very much not the point. 4. Get rid of a stupid, insistent wrist flick I make when transferring my arm from the rounded positions to allonge. To achieve these goals I plan to continue taking 4-5 classes a week, and keep my new stretching habit. I'm also taking a music theory course to deepen my understanding of classical music. Tonality analyzation, here I come! Päivi Quote Link to comment
