dido Posted April 23, 2004 Report Share Posted April 23, 2004 My teacher recently suggested that I start taking one or two of my technique classes all in pointe shoes. Imagine my humiliation when I discover that I cannot do a developpe even at 45 degrees because someone has replaced my feet with rockers. I am fine at the barre, and as acceptable as I've ever been for tendus in the center, allegro, pirouettes, but I can hardly get through an adagio combination without actually falling over. (Do we have a smilie for hysterical tears? ). My question is: Does this expose a fundamental flaw in my placement/alignment? Or is this to be expected in the switch to pointe shoes?
