wembley Posted July 7, 2004 Report Share Posted July 7, 2004 Today in class my teacher (my supportive teacher!) told me that when doing moves with my leg in 2nd position, I should match the degree of turnout to what I have on the floor, rather than trying for 180 degrees. This is to help me keep my hips straight, as by trying for 180 I am tending to turn my hips. My question is: my turnout is about 50 degrees for each leg. So when I tendu along the floor the angle should be 50 degrees. What do I do when doing a barre exercise where I have to go from 1st position to 2nd position? If I tendu at 50 degrees, my 2nd position is going to end up at a funny angle to the barre!!! I hope that this makes sense! Thanks, Wembley Quote Link to comment
