elise Posted December 3, 2003 Report Share Posted December 3, 2003 I am wondering about the arabesque. I know I've gained quite a bit of weight since I danced before college, but I remember this being a problem then as well. I cannot do an arabesque or any thing with a raised leg to the back without the pinching in my back. I can barely even get my leg off the ground in the back. It's almost as if the muscles/fat/whatever back there are just plain in the way. Is this just an illusion that can be worked on through strength and flexibility? Or is this something that is physically in my way and I won't ever be able to get my leg up? Quote Link to comment
