Danny Posted April 5, 2004 Report Share Posted April 5, 2004 Hi, Has anyone out there performed Firebird recently? I have a partnering question about a lift 3/4 of the way through the pas. We've been examining two DVD's to get a handle on the mechanics. I start with the women's left hand in my left hand and my right hand is on her left side just above the hip and slightly to the back. Our bodies are approxiately perpendicular with my back upstage and and the women facing stage right. At the apex of the lift the women is in sort of a grand jete except the leading leg points up, nearly vertical, and I'm adding to her elevation by pushing up. At least that's what I see in the DVD. This is nothing I've done before so I'm hoping for some insight, even a name for the lift. I want to say that the mechanics for the women is something along the lines of a hip sit because when we say grand jete my partner jumps away from me and I feel no load whatsoever in my right hand and she gets no extra elevation. Thanks, Danny Quote Link to comment
