Susanne Posted September 29, 2003 Report Share Posted September 29, 2003 If you are not strong enough to hold a passé retiré with your highest demi-pointe, is it better to lower it in order to being able to balance without support from the barre? or is it better to get that hight demi-pointe no matter what but with no chance whatsoever to let your hands off the barre? Would it be harmful not to rise to your highest demi? Because I feel as I don't even stand a chance to balance if I really try to go up to my highest demi-pointe, it seems as my ankles are far too weak to support my whole body-weight on just one of them. (I'm already trying to strenghten my ankles with elevés and relevés) Quote Link to comment
