Guest limeymauve Posted March 5, 2004 Report Share Posted March 5, 2004 hi, I have a problem I thought some of you might be able to help me with. I have been dancing for about 11 years, and am now 16. Just for background, I'm not extremely serious, and I don't intend to be a professional or anything, I just dance because I love to. That being said, ever since i can remember I haven't had good front or side extensions, even though I can get my leg up pretty high if I'm holding it. I never knew why until about a year ago, when someone finally told me that it's wrong to grip with the quads and that you need to use your inner thighs too. SInce then, I've been trying to correct it, but it's not getting much better, and my extensions are still barely 90 degrees. I can't seem to keep my quads from taking over, and I don't know how it feels to do an extension the right way, so I can't train myself to do it. Any advice on how I undo ten years of training?? Sorry for the long message, but i wanted to tell you all the details. Quote Link to comment
