hart Posted March 20, 2004 Report Share Posted March 20, 2004 I have always known that my plies have looked kind of funny, but I haven't figured out what made them look that way. I have known that I have had a hard time keeping my knees over my feet, but I couldn't figure out how to keep them back. Well, suffering from swelling of the knee (related to some old injuries), I figured I really better examine those plies, especially since we have been doing a lot of jumping and turning, and, within the last couple of weeks, jumping and turning at the same time . Well, today I experimented by placing more weight on the inside of my foot, (especially underneath my big toe joint) because I noticed that there isn't a speck of dirt on the inside part of the outer soul of my ballet slipper. And, well, presto chango, my legs stayed back. It seemed like my inner thigh muscle just pushed my legs back. My question is, is this really too good to be true? Could I be exchanging one devil for another? Quote Link to comment
