ballet24/7 Posted August 4, 2004 Report Share Posted August 4, 2004 My turns are aggravating me so much! At my ballet school year round, we do all of our pirrouettes and turns en pointe. Last year I could do consistant doubles, and even triples on a daily basis. I went away to a summer intensive, and during it we did most of our turns on flat, then some en pointe, and was still doing clean doubles en pointe. (I find that my placement is different for turns on flat than on pointe, so if I get used to turns on flat, I generally can't get them en pointe, and visa versa) I just came back 4 days ago, and took a class last night and tonight. I was falling out of my doubles en pointe! I feel like my muscle memory for pirrouettes has gone totally blank. I'm really really aggravated, and I was wondering if anyone had any idea why this is happening to me or what I can do to improve. Quote Link to comment
