Guest ckdancegirl7 Posted June 8, 2004 Report Share Posted June 8, 2004 I can do splits and straddles just fine, although my rotation from the hips is not too good. AND I am fairly flexible in all positions (pulling my leg up to the front, side, and back), nevertheless, I have had a lot of trouble with my grand jetes. I know I have the flexibility to get a full split and my jumps always end up with the front leg at the right height, but my back leg is always slightly lower. When I open my hip to the back I can get my leg higher and more turned out, but even when I push I can not match the height of my front leg. However, when I do this (open my hip more), it throws off the line slightly and my back leg isn't right behind me. Is there something I can do to work at getting my back leg higher? My arabesque is 90 degrees so I do not know why I can't get it up there when I jump. Any advice/tips would be appreciated. Quote Link to comment
