Jaana Heino Posted September 19, 2003 Report Share Posted September 19, 2003 I seem to have developed a new problem, which is that doing fast or otherwise tricky combinations my supporting side shoulder starts to rise until I look utterly funny and my neck goes stiff. This happens mostly, currently, in grande battements at the barre, and before a pirouette from fourth in a center combination, but I don't think it's related so much to the steps themselves, but how I feel about them (worried that I mess them up). I asked my teacher what to do about it, but she only said "well, I can't really think of anything specific; since you know where the problem is just don't do it". I guess she's right, and I can correct the problem as soon as I notice it, but I thought I'd ask here if anyone has any ideas about what specifically to think or do to stop it before it happens.
