Guest MelissaSuzanne Posted June 17, 2004 Report Share Posted June 17, 2004 Well, I just got home from class, and I am trying to figure out how to improve my foot arch. I watch the pointe girls in class, and when they point their toe, it just seems to bend their foot in half. Then, of course, their toe is in a line with their leg. When I point as hard as I can, there's still a definite angle between my leg and foot. I am wondering how much of this is just individual anatomy (I know some people whose feet arch like that, and they don't even do ballet), but how can I make my foot bend more? I've been doing toe points into a resist-a-band, and trying to practice releves, but these seem like they'd mostly work my calf. Is there something I can be doing to make the top of my foot stretch farther, so my foot will arch more? Quote Link to comment
